who i am
I was born in a tiny Swiss village named Zermatt. I'm the oldest of four. I saved my allowance in a Cool-Whip container to buy my first cat. I grew up in Michigan & then North Carolina, always on the water. I got married & divorced. I lived in Austin, TX for a hot minute, then I followed my heart to L.A. & home again. I bought a house & planted lavender. I wrote a book. My dad died & I fell in love with the sea on the pages of his journal. I sailed across the Atlantic as part of a crew of six, I didn't wash my hair for 16 days. I sold my house & bought a boat. I learned how to work on a diesel engine. I got trained as a Co-Active® coach. My heart got broken, so I spent some time alone...traveling, writing, struggling, surrendering. I fell deeply in love with my heart & rediscovered my voice...my spirit.
I spent my life building a successful career in the biotech/pharmaceutical industry. I've done every role from research assistant to clinical operations manager. I’ve monitored every metric & managed every team that those roles imply. There was always a quiet voice I couldn’t ignore. I long to create impact in the world, I long to be free & adventurous…living in alignment with purpose & joy. So, I began consciously creating the life I wanted. I traded my business clothes for sundresses & my heels for bare feet. I created space in my days for being & not so much doing. Now I'm poised to serve in a new, meaningful way: inspiring & empowering people to deeply connect to themselves, to each other & to the world!
