Although I’ve lived for a while, my life truly started 7 years ago. That was when I made the decision to blow up my life and choose again. I divorced my husband of 15 years (and father of my two children). I was so tired of living a life that wasn’t me. I was exhausted from creating and maintaining a facade of me- I didn’t even know who I was anymore- but I decided I needed to find out. That horribly painful decision was the beginning of the rest of my life.
Since getting a divorce seven years ago, here’s how my life has changed (in no particular order): I became a runner (I’ve never run before), I have found and married my soulmate, I have launched a career that I am obsessed with, my children and both my husbands have traveled together many times, I’ve spoken at multiple Technology Conferences (including Internationally), I’ve learned to ski and I’ve learned to live.
I now have the privilege of teaching other women how to redesign the life of their dreams. I teach them how to create a relationship with their children’s father in a way that loves and respects everyone (no matter how traumatic the divorce). I teach women that their desires are sacred and they are worthy of WHATEVER they want in this world. You may be interested to know that my husband, my ex-husband and myself parent our children together. We have an open and trusting relationship that includes traveling together, sharing dinners and holidays- but mostly just being kind and respectful.
I’m a mother, a daughter, a sister, wife, and friend. I’m obsessed with the color pink. I’m an identical twin. As a child, I lived on a sailboat and sailed the South Pacific Ocean. I’m a little bit bossy and extreme lover of humans!
I have spent the last 17 years coaching executives and building and designing HR organizations from the ground up. I have been an executive-level advisor to business leaders on HR issues, seeking strategies and solutions for large organizations in diverse, geographically dispersed, and multicultural, global environments. Then I got burned out on all of that and quit.
I'm a member of the Forbes Coaches Council- an invitation only community for leading business and career coaches. In addition to having a BA from California State University, Chico, I received my Professional in Human Resources Certification (PHR) in 2007. I hold two additional Coaching certifications, in Intuitive Business Mentorship and a Coaching Certification Program through Mentor Masterclass.
