Life + Leadership Coach
I work with the dreamers and doers of the world, the people who are feeling the call and the complexity of wanting something more. I help you quickly and efficiently get clear on who you are and what you want. I help you look at all of the pieces of your life that are swirling about in the chaos cloud above you – your career, relationships, health, finances, personal mission etc. – and together, we build a plan that integrates all that you are into a life that you love. I then walk side by side with you as you create your life, supporting you to build key habits and skills, championing your progress, thought-partnering with you on unanticipated challenges, and helping you build the confidence you need to carry on designing your life long after our time together has come to a close.
style + philosophy
Resume and technical qualifications aside, an avid traveler, student of life, and self-experimenter has been instrumental in unleashing my power as a coach. I don’t ask my clients to do anything that I’m not willing to do and actively doing in my life. I am a coach because I have personally witnessed and experienced the power of transforming myself and consciously designing and living into a life of my choosing, and I live, lead, and coach from this place of deep conviction each day.
My purpose on the planet is to support others in living more fully into theirs. I am motivated by helping to make the world a more just and equitable place, and so my goal is to make a difference by supporting those around me to find their voice, know, honor, and embrace their individual uniqueness, while linking arms with others to connect, collaborate, and communicate in ways that heal.
As a multiracial woman of color, I am sensitive to some of the unique challenges that people of color face in designing and living a life that they love and am particularly passionate about helping others like myself build the clarity, confidence, and skills they need to offer their incredible wisdom and gifts to the world.

Life + Relationship Coach
I’m a dreamer and I’ll try almost anything at least once. This combination has led me down many unique paths. I’ve experienced the film world, the environmentalism world, the philosophical world, you name it. All of which has led me to the juiciest, most exciting world of them all. The human world. I became a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach because I believe that most of us aren’t living at our full potential and I want to provide people with the right tools and guidance to reach that potential.
Style + Philosophy
I coach using a peer-to-peer model that empowers you to take your wellbeing into your own hands. My philosophy is that you are naturally creative, resourceful, and whole, meaning that you contain all of the answers within you. The problem is that these answers are often buried deep because it’s too easy to become misguided by negative societal and internal pressures. My job as a coach is to help you re-align with your core values and learn how to navigate life’s challenges from a place of authenticity and self-confidence.
My style as a coach is organic and tailored to you as an individual. I will help you connect with your core through somatic exercises, guided visualization, perspective work, and mindfulness practices. I will support you as you become aware of your current beliefs and consciously choose who you want to be in the world. I will help you quiet your inner critics and show you what happens when you allow your inner mentor to step into the driver’s seat. As a result, you will be able to start making decisions and taking actions that align with your values. Whether you feel stuck in your career, have a dream you can’t seem to make a reality, or feel dissatisfied even though you seem to “have it all,” I will partner with you on your future success.
