Thank you for coming here to see what I'm about. I'm a coach, a speaker, a best selling author, and a community builder.
I started coaching others after my own personal tragedy and transformation.
I lost my first husband to Cancer in the spring of 2010, our kids were 1 1/2 and 4 and I had no family near me. I worked full time in Silicon Valley, my kids went to before-school care and after-school care. I saw them for a few hours during the week and on the weekends. And I was tired. Impatient. Lonely. Did I say tired?
After I started to come out of the fog of grief, I decided, finally, that something had to shift. If anything was ever going to be different...if the dreams I had for myself and my kids were ever going to come true...then I had to be the one to make it happen.
It seemed to me, if I felt better about my shape, then I would feel better about my life. Superficial, I know, but I was in survival mode. I also desperately needed more energy! I needed to sleep better. I needed to be more patient at work and especially with my kids. I needed to become the person who could imagine a better life, so we could work toward it.
I started on that health journey almost 10 years ago, and really, the weight loss was a side effect of everything else that I gained.
With the help of my own coach and our supportive community, I gained a new perspective on what was possible for me and for my family. I retrained my brain and learned new habits. I understood what real self-care looks like. I began to shift my thoughts toward the positive. I read books that fed my mind. I embraced the power of support and community. I became a new, healthier, more mindful and intentional version of myself.
Now I help other women get clarity on what they want to change with their lives and I help them achieve their goals and dreams! My clients set goals across the personal and professional spectrum, because really, there's nothing more than a fuzzy line between them. Improve your life, improve your business, and vice versa! Let's do this!
Oh, and by the way, now I'm remarried to my BFF of 30+ years...and he's a great dad. We live in Santa Cruz, California with our kids, now 13 and 15, and our dog, Princess Leia.
