Welcome, I'm grateful you are here.

Our business and life challenges are the murky water that we bloom in.

 

Sometimes you choose the murky water (in pursuit of becoming your best) and sometimes the murky water chooses you (with unforeseen situations). 

 

Lotus flowers only grow in murky water.  And we are no different. 

 

As a professional life coach, my job is to help you and/or your business rise out of the murky water and achieve your greatest goals.

“Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it's having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome. Vulnerability is not weakness; it's our greatest measure of courage.”

Coaching Process

You, and only you, can determine the path in life that will leave you most fulfilled.

 

My coaching philosophy blends psychology, management science, and spirituality to help you become that "great leader" in your personal and professional life.  

 

We will take a holistic approach to ensure that you not only achieve your goals, but also balance in all areas of your life: emotional, mental, physical, spiritual, social, and financial.

 

Each session is like a conversation between long-time friends, where I will ask questions that create awareness and "a-ha moments" — shifts in perception about your life.

 

These shifts in perception change the entire game because they alter how you see and show up in the world. 

 

With your elevated confidence, we will co-create an action plan to develop the beliefs and habits necessary to achieve your next-level goals and dreams.

"Every action you take is a vote for the person you wish to become."

My Story

I was born and raised in a small university town on a mountain in Sewanee, Tennesse. I played all sports growing up and attended St. Andrews Sewanee School.

For college, I attended Elon University and double-majored in Political Science and Public Administration. It was there, I made the best of friends from all across the world.

After graduation, I moved to Vilnius, Lithuania for a summer. There, I worked with the Human Rights Monitoring Institute on their annual report & partnered with the US Embassy to host a conference on anti-corruption in the judicial system.

When I returned, I joined Bank of America in Charlotte, North Carolina. There, I spent three years working on the program management office teams merging US Trust & Countrywide Mortgage into the bank.

In 2010, my brother serendipitously met the CEO of an elite management consulting firm on a plane to NYC, which led to me joining Carlisle & Gallagher Consulting Group. There, I worked on consulting engagements at the top 3 US banks and others. I moved my way up the corporate ladder, and I eventually sold consultants to the nation’s first and sixth largest banks as a business development executive.

But at some point, the luxury hotels, fancy dinners, corporate travel & entertainment lifestyle just stopped bringing me joy. I started to realize that material possessions and entertainment were just not going to be enough to keep me fulfilled with my life.

In the summer of 2015, I attended a plant medicine ceremony in Grass Valley, California. Six months later, I quit my job at the height of my consulting career and spent 1,000 days in India — where my partner had gone to get experience working on women’s rights issues in her home country before applying for her Ph.D.

While there, my personal focus was on restoring and strengthening my mind, body, and spirit, harmonizing my relationship, and learning to live an authentic life that brought me true joy and peace. Letting go of all outside expectations and opinions of others, I learned to let my heart be my guide.

Professionally, I was focused on building a world-class coaching practice by cultivating one skill and competency at a time. Including getting ICF-certified by Coacharya, an exceptional organization that blends executive coaching with western philosophy and eastern spirituality.

In September 2019 we moved to Seattle, Washington where my partner is now getting her Ph.D. from the University of Washington.

While in Seattle, I helped found a tech startup developing an app called Proxi — for coaches, creators, and organizations who want to level up their businesses in private online spaces. It is in Proxi that I have launched my Conscious Motivation private online community for people who want to climb the mountains that stand in between them and their best selves.

And I still coach a limited number of 1-on-1 clients, because intimately partnering with individuals to overcome their most difficult challenges and fulfill their dreams is my greatest purpose.

Let's connect.
