I come to the world of coaching from that of character study. Having grown up a perfectionist in preppy Baltimore with a degree from Princeton in English and Theater, I know what it is to be driven, and to wonder simultaneously if there is something more–something on a soul level. I searched actively for that as I worked as an actor for twelve years, discerning the why for each and every character.
My first major why turning point came after I got married and started having children. Mindful of security, I became a news reporter and anchor in Connecticut. While I loved it, the constant buzz of police and fire scanners proclaiming death and disaster got to me. My husband’s job was solid, and my spirit needed a change. I dove into raising my children, only to discover that laundry was not nearly as fulfilling as I had hoped. I suffered as a result of my unconscious choice, and from my lack of awareness that I could make another one. Eventually, I wanted to figure out what was next for me—consciously this time. In the process of working with a coach, I discovered my destiny and became certified with the Coaches Training Institute.
I bring a lifetime of experience to coaching…triumphs and failures, adventures and losses. The journey of my life has been to separate my expectations and circumstances from my feelings…to learn that happiness is a choice. Empowering others to break free of fixed ideas and to see things from a variety of angles, to discover possibility and act on it, is what I love to do.
