Your second-half certified coach and thought partner


Welcome. It's nice to see you here.

What's your story?


You might have found your way here because a sense within nudges you toward change. Maybe someone mentioned exploring coaching, and you're curious about how it all works.

You may feel stuck in a rut and you’re not sure how to move forward. Perhaps you're sensing a bit of uncertainty, a feeling that there's more to explore for a more fulfilling life, yet the path forward seems unclear.


I'm here to help you shift perspectives, uncover new pathways, and inspire decisive action.

You may be at a career crossroads without fully understanding why. Past achievements might not bring the same sense of fulfillment anymore, leaving you pondering a deeper sense of purpose.


I'm here to support you in navigating life's complex questions and finding that sweet spot where fulfillment resides.

You may be contemplating a transition—a shift from where you are to where you want to be. You’re thinking about changing jobs, but you don’t want to change just for the sake of change. Retirement might be peering around the corner, and you're eager to make it count.


I'm here to help you focus on what truly matters and guide you through transitions, so you emerge on the other side feeling more fulfilled.

What's my story?

I've walked paths that might feel familiar to you, experiences that equipped me to understand your journey. I've navigated job changes, career pivots, leadership shifts, layoffs, and the unique challenges of an empty nest. I've wrestled with the quest for a meaningful life and career.

You and I are each wonderfully and uniquely made.

I believe in a higher purpose for each of us, and this belief shapes how I approach coaching. My passion for coaching aligns with values of integrity, lifelong learning, human dignity, and respect. It resonates deeply with my drive to serve others.


Coaching is a partnership between you and me.


It's a thought-provoking and creative process to inspire you to maximize personal and professional potential.​​


As your coach, I commit to:

  • creating a safe, non-judgmental space for your thoughts.

  • ensuring absolute confidentiality—your trust in me is paramount.

  • encouraging fresh perspectives and novel ways of thinking.

  • guiding you towards clarity and actionable steps.

  • assisting you in connecting the dots and taking meaningful action.


As a leadership coach, I'm here to support individuals seeking lasting impacts through purposeful, successful, and meaningful lives.

I'm here to help you craft your story.


If this aligns with the supportive partnership you seek, I invite you to join me for a free discovery call to see if we're a good fit.

"When you really listen to another person from their point of view and reflect back to them that understanding, it's like giving them emotional oxygen."

Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
