Your Coach for Living By Design

Transformational health & life coach, avid walker, kitchen creative and bubbly lover

While I am a Jersey girl at heart, I’ve lived, worked and played in the Northern California Bay Area for over 30 years and cannot imagine calling ANYwhere else home. We have the best of it all - cultural diversity, unbelievable weather, amazing cuisine, breathtaking coastline and the San Francisco skyline... what more can I say?

For most of my career I've worked in corporate america and while I've had amazing opportunities along the way I always knew I had an entrepreneurial spirit. I'm an avid reader and love learning and have always had a desire to help others and make a small mark on the world.

After 25 years in corporate america and the conclusion of a successful career in the insurance industry where I trained, coached and developed a sales team, it was time to create a new chapter.

I wanted to take my experience, skills, expertise and passions and use them for a greater more fulfilling purpose.

Beyond 50

While I was exploring my options, I kept coming back to coaching, as I've been doing this most of my life in some capacity. Really though coaching found me and changed my life. Around this time I was also dealing with my own internal mid-life struggle.. I was over 50, trying like heck to get in shape, eat healthy, re-invent myself and just show up as the best version of me. My stress was at an all time high and I had a lot of baggage to unpack.

My struggle was real!

As more conversations with friends took place topics about stress, overwhelm and muffin tops (hmm could be a blog in there somewhere - or a country song), marriages, moves, career changes and loss... it was happening to all of us and I wanted to do something meaningful to help navigate this exciting time in our lives

My Coaching Journey started as a personal quest to do some deep internal work, but quickly became a calling to do something more meaningful in the world - sharing my gifts with others in a way that felt intentional, and with more passion and purpose

What Changed…

You may be expecting me to say I went on some crazy diet and did something extreme, but I'll tell ya... it all started with my internal dialog. What we say to ourselves, and the meaning we give to what happens to us has such a huge impact on how we feel about ourselves and view the world.

Here are a just a few other game changers...

* Stress - I got back in the drivers seat - this can impact EVERYthing in your life
* Food - I stopped depriving myself and judging, and instead got curious and gained knowledge about what works best for my body.
* Exercise - Slowly adopted new healthy habits - doing things I enjoy, not dread
* Self Image - I stopped with the negative self talk and insecurity (to my husband, "you're welcome" ;o).
* Clearing the Clutter - The only word that comes to mind is LIBERATING

The Journey Begins…

I am taking my years of life and extensive work experience and expertise, gifts and passion, and applying them for a greater purpose - one filled with passion and gratitude for the gifts I've received in this life so far.

I love this path and the energy it brings me to be in a constant state of growth.

I want to help women who struggle with stress, anxiety and overwhelm to find peace, tap into their personal best so they can achieve their goals and design lives they love. Living a healthy lifestyle can and should be FUN!
