I'm a professional coach and former practicing lawyer, passionate about helping others discover how to amplify their potential, accomplish their goals, and live life with more intention and ease. I'm especially passionate about going after what you desire in a way that is less overwhelming and more sustainable, enjoyable, and authentic to you.
I'm no stranger to hard work, but I believe true productivity, sustainable success, and deep fulfillment come easier when we have a clear and focused mind and are grounded, vibrant, and thriving in all areas of our lives.
My professional career began as a litigation attorney at one of the top large law firms in Chicago. It was there that I stumbled upon my true passion: guiding others through challenges and growth opportunities in their personal and professional lives.
As much as I enjoyed strategic thinking and problem-solving as a lawyer, I enjoy it even more working with people to improve some aspect of their lives and become who they truly want to be.
These days, I serve as a catalyst for others to shift their mindset, expand their perspectives, and create positive growth and change in their lives. I am grateful for the opportunity to guide others in becoming more effective, positive, self-assured, happy, healthy, and fulfilled.
I believe you deserve to truly flourish, to have the impact you want to make, and the deeply fulfilling life you desire. It's yours to create. And it's not as far out of reach as you might think!
I support my clients in figuring out ways to get more of what matters most done and create more balance, ease, and flow, so they can make more of an impact and be less overwhelmed.
It's true, you could keep straining and striving, being overwhelmed and ending another day unsatisfied... hoping tomorrow you'll "get more done" and things will somehow flow more smoothly. 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 and efficient, to confidently pursue their dreams and goals, and to build a fulfilling and nourishing life that allows them to show up at their best - an authentic, joyful life. A life on their terms in alignment 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 love spending a few minutes (or more) each morning writing in a beautiful journal. Journaling helps to connect to our inner wisdom and process our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. It can also be fun to look back and see how your journey has unfolded and how much you have grown, though you don't have to keep them. If you find keeping them causes you to sensor yourself, tear up the pages and toss them! It's really the process that matters.
There is something special about the ritual of a hot cup of coffee in the morning, usually sipped on while I journal. I like my coffee dark and robust. Whether it's pour over at home or meeting up with a friend for a latte at a local coffee shop, coffee is one of those little things in life I savor.
After growing up and attending college and law school in a small Midwestern town, I made the move to Chicago. The windy city may feel like home these days, but I still enjoy exploring all that it has to offer. From the different neighborhoods and restaurants, to the riverwalk and Lake Michigan, there's always something fun to do! I love that Chicago is a big city, but still infused with a down-to-earth Midwestern vibe.
Exercise is one of the habits I've had to cultivate with intention and is now a staple in my life. I first developed a love for strength training in law school after signing up to work with a personal trainer and it has been one of my favorite forms of exercise ever since. Recently, I learned how to roller ski and plan to cross country ski in the winter (hopefully making winters more active and enjoyable here in Chicago!) Walking, yoga, and kettle bells are some of my other favorite ways to exercise.
People often tell me that my home is warm and inviting and that's because I've set out with the intention to create it that way! I want my home to amplify my energy and vibe - to spark inspiration, creativity, relaxation, and joy. I love warming up my home or office space with things like candles, flowers, blankets, pillows, textures, and beautiful paintings and photos.
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'm more of a "toss a little of this and a little of that" kind of cook but it (usually) turns out well! 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. I think that's a great lesson for life!
To be a catalyst for powerful insights and positive growth in others. To guide others in connecting with their inner wisdom and tapping into more of their potential so that they can live their best lives.
I provide coaching services with a holistic approach recognizing that all aspects of our personal and professional lives are interrelated.
