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 brand and 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. 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. I believe one of the most powerful things I can do with who I am is to inspire others, provoke thought, explore feelings, and then hold you accountable to take action that drives you toward what you really want, and who you want to be. Who you are. That is what makes me free and in flight.
My work involves partnering with people to extract authenticity and energy that radiates. It's deep work that evolves, grows, gets uncomfortable and serves as a catalyst for change. It mobilizes the transformation 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 honest with yourself. Experiencing a roadblock or resistance along your journey is an indicator there is some work worth doing because there's more on the other side. There may be times you won’t know where you’re going, but you might know you’re done with where you are so you have to take that next step forward. Sometimes, identifying that next step is what takes work.
My story is really about other people and how I can inspire them to consistently seek out their own freedom and fulfillment, 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?
