I am a speaker and professional coach who helps high-impact career professionals honor themselves as thrivalists in work & in life
First I wanted to let you know that I know what it feels like to not be comfortable in your own skin at home and in the workplace. Something really just feels off. You wake up in the middle of the night in a repeating nightmare wondering how things got so off track. You had big plans for what life was supposed to be like. You did all of the right things and thought by doing so you would find your bliss.
Not so?...I get it.
Whatever the challenges life & career throw at you...I can help you uplevel and achieve what it is that you most desire. Sometimes it's just piece of mind, other times is needing help with a huge decision or a career shift. Rest assured you will find your way as I have and flourish!
I am a high-impact former perfectionist who has "done" corporate in so many different facets for over twenty years and who has come to find that you can absolutely pursue your passions and goals all while staying true to your whole self in work & in life.
Maybe it was the sexual harassment at work or the brutal realities of having young children while being on the verge of catapulting into the next higher tier in my career that stopped me cold.
After coming back to work from my second maternity leave, I turned down a promotion as I just could not see taking on even more responsibility. The thought of it made me cry. Seriously, I cried.
To conform to my new circumstances, I took on a boring desk job that was more conducive to caring for two young kids. On the up side, I was able to negotiate the coveted working from home status, when it seemed impossible in my company to do so.
Here I was. An unstable marriage with two young children. An eye opening realization that I had been sexually harassed at work for over five years. THAT reality didn’t dawn on me until I landed a sweet offer on a new role with more money, the ability to work from home, and lots more excitement than my current role. The opportunity was dreamy. The STRING was that I would have to work with THE person sexually harassing me. Talk about an aha turn down that big juicy job moment! I hit a wall in work and in life. This was not the way I wanted to live.
I always believe that life brings in new teachers just when you need them most. Mine was Anese Cavanaugh. A beautiful huge proponent and speaker of intentional energy. While watching her speak, I realized that I too could help lead others to their best energetic lives. That transformational shift had to begin with me.
What happened Next...
Remember the ditch I was in?…I was determined to climb my way out. Through a coaching program I found, I was able to transform my turbulent inner core STUFF. Getting that started was a huge deal.
My inward journey was moving upward. I enrolled in a professional coach training program. Digging inwardly deep during that year of coaching and energetic work allowed me to come out the other side more healthy, vibrant and happy. My marriage was more loving. The harassment had ended. My career became more meaningful.
Once my perspective transformed from bleak to whole; my closest relationships flourished and everything around me bloomed!
Now I am fully and mindfully present during our wonderful family vacations to Aruba and to the Jersey Shore. I took on another exciting role within the company I worked for that fit the “me” I am today. My life just continues to expand.
In addition to coaching some amazing clients on upleveling their careers and lives, and working in my continuously evolving corporate career; my journey also led me to become a motivational speaker so that others can feel inspired, uplifted, and motivated.
My philosophy is to stress less to live.. I'm so thankful for all the things that happened FOR me because I was then able to really turn around my circumstances, and find out that there is a solution to getting out of our own ways.
I appreciate that there are many ways that can help me…”do me.” No more hiding.
I love that there are easy quick techniques that anyone can easily shift their energy to a more positive light. I believe none of us are stuck. We always have a choice. I feel that our internal and holistic values will guide us each and every time with each decision that we make. I believe that I would not have gotten to where I am now if I did not work with a coach.
I actually continue to work with a coach because it is so important for me to continue being my amazing self. I appreciate now more than ever getting on track and staying on track. It is so important to me to be wholly present. I love my family and I love my life. I believe that we should always follow the map where we are the treasure.
Change is constant. So what are we going to do about it? How are we going to choose to live powerfully and on purpose? It's all about knowing yourself inside and out as to how you can really accomplish a well lived purposeful authentic life.
