A lawyer turned professional coach, I'm passionate about combining practical strategies and powerful mindset shifts with the heart-centered, intuitive art of life coaching to be a catalyst for growth and change in others. I'm also a nerd when it comes to creative small business and pursuing your goals in a way that is true to you, enjoyable, sustainable, and deeply fulfilling.
I'm no stranger to hard work, but I believe sustainable success and true fulfillment are better fueled by being grounded, healthy, joyful, vibrant, and thriving as you take aligned action - not frantic hustle, overwork, and overwhelm!
I thought I'd landed my dream job as a lawyer at one of the best large law firms in the world, until I realized it wasn't my dream... at least not anymore. I was successful on paper, but it didn't feel true to me on the inside. It felt like I was succeeding at someone else's dream.
What I realized along the way is that I enjoy strategy and problem-solving - when it also involves personal connection, creativity, and heart - and I am deeply passionate about personal and professional growth.
Feeling a deep calling toward coaching and serving as a catalyst for change that leads people toward the life they truly want, I set out to become a coach and combine the analytical skills I gained as a lawyer with the art of life coaching.
Now, my favorite days are when I'm coaching clients and working behind-the-scenes on my business! Being a coach and entrepreneur truly inspires me and lights me up!! Most of the time it doesn't even feel like "work." And I love that I get to use my legal background and my intuitive, creative side to serve and help others.
That's why I support my clients in creating structure and balance in their life and work, so that everything can flow more easily and feel less overwhelming. As an entrepreneur myself, I've seen how overwhelmed and overworked so many entrepreneurs and other passion-driven people are. I can relate! But I was determined to create a different lifestyle - one where I put my wellbeing and having a thriving, well-rounded life above hours logged. And use it to fuel my success. Now, I love to help others figure out how to do the same!
It's true, you could keep striving, overworking, ending another day exhausted and still not satisfied with what you're accomplishing... hoping maybe tomorrow you'll wake up and figure out a better way. OR, you could team up with me and we can figure it out now - together!
What lights me up most? Empowering people to be more effective at what they do, confidently pursue their dreams and goals, and build a deeply fulfilling, nourishing life at the same time. An authentic, joyful, and free life. A life on their terms aligned with their vision, values, priorities, and desires. It's such a joy and an honor to get to serve my clients in this way and to get to see the insights, self-discovery, and transformations they experience!
I bet this one is no surprise to you! I love a quiet morning spent scribbling my thoughts and dreams into a beautiful Moleskine journal. Journaling helps me process my thoughts, feelings, and beliefs, connect to my inner wisdom, and develop my spirituality. It's also fun to be able to look back and see how my journey has unfolded.
There's nothing quite like sipping a cup of coffee to get the day started (while I'm journaling)! For me, coffee is more about the ritual of it all. (Okay... I admit I like a caffeine boost too!) I prefer my coffee dark and robust - no light roast here!! Whether it's pour over at home or lattes with a friend at a local coffee shop, it's one of those sweet little additions that makes life richer.
I grew up in a small(ish) town 3 hours south of Chicago, but the city now officially feels like home to me. I love exploring all the different neighborhoods and restaurants, Lincoln Park, the Riverwalk, and Lake Michigan beaches in the summer. Winters may be freezing, but the incredible summers here almost always make up for it!! Despite how big the city is, it still has that friendly Midwestern vibe that I love.
I discovered my love for strength training in law school after being diagnosed with Narcolepsy and starting treatment. For the first time, I had energy!! I signed up for a personal trainer and it's been my favorite form of exercise ever since. I also love doing yoga with Adriene videos in my living room. (If you haven't tried her free videos, seriously check them out!!)
In my spare time, I love decorating my home. It's important to me that my home is a place where I feel inspired, relaxed, creative, and cozy. I believe the aesthetic of our home can enhance our energy, creativity, and joy. My favorite colors to decorate with are coastal blues, bright whites, and peachy pinks, as you can tell by this site!! They're calming and inspiring to me! I also love candles & picture frames.
My love for cooking comes from my mom! Watching her cook healthy, delicious meals in our kitchen growing up inspired me to experiment and develop my own cooking skills. I rarely follow a recipe - I toss in a little of this and a little of that! My mom taught me to play and experiment in the kitchen and that there are really no "mistakes," only opportunities to learn and tweak for next time. It's a great metaphor for life!
Make it simple, yet significant.
Just because you could do more, doesn't mean you should.
Give yourself permission to play and experiment!
Your dreams are significant, no matter the size.
It's okay to change your mind.
Fulfillment begins with clarity.
You are enough.
