Change is life.
I’m your guide.
How can I help?
Well, I’ve changed virtually every aspect of my life: my job, my spirituality, my nutrition, my geographical “home” and my sexuality. Many times over. I’m also a certified teacher, coach and I earned my Master’s degree in Education. My focus was change theory and identity.
All my experience helps me help you better because I understand the process of personal transformation more than most coaches. If you’re facing it, I’ve lived through it. I’m here to listen and support you.
That's how I help my clients of all identities learn who they are and want to become. One conversation and one decision at a time. Results are guaranteed as long as you’re in it to win it.
Nurturing expertise in the field of wellness for over 20 years has taught me how:
to be a work in progress, constantly adjusting to life and adapting to THRIVE
to feel comfortable as a white person navigating race politics in today’s society
to embrace minimalism and live modestly for more freedom and fulfillment
to have more money in the bank and a better credit score now than from any 9-5 job
to know the difference between discerning and judging others
to feel completely comfortable with my relationship to food
to accept my mother for everything she is and offers me
to communicate and listen with compassion and empathy (for myself and others)
to embrace and accept anxious and depressive responses to stressors in my life
to know who I am and what I want
to embrace being single with no children, by choice (for now)
I don’t even own a television. That was a hard one to give up but I did it.
Moderating a conversation with Randi Zuckerberg in my role as a WeWork Labs Global Mentor was a highlight of 2019! This woman is a powerhouse and all-around wonderful human being.
