A little about me before I get to know you.
Climb the ladder, land the job, get the raise, embrace the plague of perfectionism - these were all things I was very good at and provided me with what many would consider a successful career. I managed large-scale events, rebranded companies, developed creative marketing strategies, built websites, created new positions for myself, launched an organizational culture strategy initiative. Along the way I noticed two things: I continuously sought out work that was centered around people, but the work I was doing wasn't fulfilling. I wasn't free. I was reaching the goals I set so I couldn't understand why I wasn't fulfilled, until I realized my focus was on the doing and my value was measured by achievements. I wanted my time and energy spent to be so purposeful and in service to others I knew there was something I was called to do, and that's when I became curious about not just what I could do, but who I could be. Who I was. Then I became a mother and it rocked my world. It was on my journey back to who I am that I discovered coaching and knew that was the calling that was woven to who I am. During my second pregnancy I became astutely aware of the massive shift in self that mothers have to navigate and that's when I knew I wanted to nurture the nurturers through their own journeys. When women become mothers there is so much focus on the physical care, the baby shower, the body - but the mind of a mother needs care.
My work involves partnering with you to do the deep work that evolves, grows, gets uncomfortable and uncovers what still needs healing. It mobilizes the change sitting inside you and ignites the flame that lights the path back to who you are. It requires answering the hard questions, being vulnerable, and evaluating the relationship with yourself.
My story is really about other people on their journey into and through motherhood and how I can inspire them to consistently seek clarity around who they are, and to stay curious enough, brave enough and strong enough during the transition, to get where they want to go.
You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.
The Mosaic of Me
A mother, a wife, a professional, a friend, a woman, a coach - with all the roles we play in our lives it's important to not define ourselves by these roles. Who we are to other people, is not who we are and it's a good thing because those roles can change! Who are you if the relationship with your partner changes? What if you lost your job or chose to leave the workforce? What happens when your role as a parent changes as your children grow? The good news is, you are still you - but many of us don't know who that is without our roles. Want to learn more or prepare for an upcoming transition?
