She helps professional men and women to get back into the driver’s seat of their lives — while remembering how to have fun along the way. She is most inspired when, through her coaching, her clients feel that they are seen in the world for who they are. She desires her coaching to cause goosebumps by imagining an exciting future and thinking outside the box (instead of dwelling on the past).

She personally has experience in voice work, including leading guided meditations during coaching, singing jazz professionally, directing a choir, recording the voice for audiobooks for the visually impaired. Her love of positive energy extends from a great appreciation of beauty to hosting a good meal.
