In 2012 while I was running a marketing consulting practice, seemingly out of nowhere, my fiancé was diagnosed with a glioblastoma (a malignant brain tumor). Despite the grim diagnosis of three to nine months, we decided to get married right away. Time was precious and we wanted to savor every moment. I gave up my business to be his caregiver. I couldn’t imagine not being with him through his horror, nor could I bear the thought of missing one second of the time he had left.
There were fights with the insurance company to get him the best care at Duke University’s Robert Preston Tisch Brain Tumor Center. Countless doctors. Keeping track of medications. The seizures. The ambulances. The falls. The airlifts. Hospice. Family drama. The chemotherapy days and their aftermaths. The radiation experience. Hurt feelings. The list goes on.
I learned back then how important having a coach could have been to help me pivot when I was feeling dark.
A coach would have been an objective person to speak with. A coach could have guided me to take better care of myself. A coach would have shown me how to find peace among all the chaos — something that was so desperately needed. And most importantly, a coach could have supported me in finding the best feeling thoughts as I created my future reality. A future reality that unfortunately involved being a widow.
Luckily, I did find a coach and a whole coaching program. And I became a coach myself. Now I am able to help other people rise above their personal disasters and catastrophes to recover and transform them into new beginnings.
I've been where you are and I know how to get out. I‘ve been naturally coaching people all of my life. Healing for me has been finding a way to turn my traumatic experience into something positive.
I obtained my coaching certification from the Quantum Success Coaching Academy (an International Coaching Federation recognized program) — and my chosen specialty is working with people who are looking to improve their situations, overcoming challenges from a difficult setback.
People who know they are able, and want to be more successful.

I am also available to speak on the subjects of bully bosses, caregiving for a loved one, and developing a success mindset — and/or any combination of these subjects.

It would be my honor to guide you on your journey.
