My journey is filled with stories and smiles. As I enter 20+ years of business I am happy to say I have enjoyed many career fields, companies, roles, and personal pivots. I am very excited to now be a part of the team at Ama La Vida as a Leadership Coach.
I was born and raised in the Puget Sound area (Seattle, Wa). At age 30 I took my first life pivot and moved to Charleston, SC. In 2014 I had my first and only child, Grace. Since then, I’ve lived, traveled and worked all over the globe.
In 2015 I decided to leave my Boeing career behind and uprooted my husband, 14-month-old daughter and 8-year-old dog to Costa Rica. We lived the adventure of a lifetime and spent a year exploring, relaxing, playing and growing together. During this time I started my own business, Discovery Coaching. Upon our return from Costa Rica, we continued to explore, traveling the states and spending two months in France.
After nearly 3 years of running Discovery Coaching, I picked up a second passion, Destination Wedding Planning. Then again 2 years later I took another pivot and joined the team at Ama La Vida.
Today I work very hard to pursue BOTH of my passions. Coaching and Destination Wedding Planning may sound different but they share many similarities. What I love about my unique journey is it’s a great reminder to clients that your passions can become your life’s work and you can choose to be multi-passionate.
I have coached employees from a variety of organizations and backgrounds on leadership and personal growth. I have a dynamic style, leadership presence and ability to transform leaders into the best version of themselves simply by leveraging the strengths they already have inside. I am passionate about helping others. Many great people supported me early on in my career and I will forever feel the pull to do the same for others so they too may love life.
