I'm a Corporate Dropout turned Life Coach and Creative Entrepreneur. I'm out to document and elevate the Human Experience through writing, coaching, and speaking.
I am incredibly lucky to have the life that I do. But, it wasn't always like this.
Truth be told, I was in hiding for most of my life. Growing up, I didn't like myself very much. I was too soft, too nice, too… squishy. It became too scary to show the world the real me, so I worked on "building" another one instead. A person that never made a mistake. A model employee. A person that defined themselves as "Exceeded Expectations".
And I achieved my misguided aims. I graduated college with an impressive resume, moved to an impressive city, and started working at impressive companies. It felt like I was on track to have it all.
But… it always felt off. I found myself unhappy more and more frequently. My periods of overwhelm would border on panic attacks and depression. I tried to distract myself by staying busy and moving to different cities, but deep down, I knew there was something fundamental that was missing.
As I got more in tune with myself and the disempowering stories I'd been living in, I started to realize my own true power. I realized that I didn't need to be anything for anyone, that what I brought to the table was enough, and that I was worthy of love and affection and success.
Eventually my intuition came knocking and, nervously, I answered the door - I made the leap from full-time employment, jumped into coaching work, and haven't looked back since. And what a ride it's been!
Nowadays, I have the distinct pleasure of working with an incredible group of clients and organizations to facilitate amazing transformations of the heart and soul.
When I'm not reminding people of how great they are, you can find me out taking pictures, running, or reading.
