Oh HEEEYYYY! Thanks for stopping by!
I’m so glad you’re here!
I’m gonna be very honest with you. I was going to hire a photographer to take fancy pictures of me looking like a fabulous professional in trendy coffee shops just crushing it at life.
But the thought of doing that made me wanna throw up in my mouth.
(Plus, I don’t even work at trendy coffee shops. I work from my house, which is usually a mess.)
Instead, I decided to share some ACTUAL photos of me, living my ACTUAL life.
Here’s all about the REAL me...
I have a super soft spot for animals and children.
My little animal loving heart has been vegan since 2004, and I’ve been working with kids in many different arenas since 2008.
I’ve been a nanny, a kids yoga teacher, a kids acting teacher, and I even ran a kids gymnastics center in NYC for many years. (I can’t do a cartwheel, but I can teach a 5-year old how to!)
Now I love coaching kids as well as adults!
I often think about how different my life would have been if I had learned these tools and skills when I was 12.
That’s why I’m so passionate about making sure there are other kids out there who are getting the exact kind of support I really needed but didn’t get until much later.
I first got into coaching because I thought I needed to lose 10 pounds.
Never mind the fact that I had already lost and gained hundreds of pounds at that point, and none of it ever seemed to make a difference. I was under the illusion that when I finally figured out how to be a size 4, THEN I would feel the way I wanted to about myself.
I also had similar beliefs about my relationships, career, finances. I believed that everything around me had to change in order to feel the way I wanted to in my life.
So I joined a group coaching program for people who were struggling with their relationship with their food and body. That’s when I first learned that changing anything outside of myself wasn’t the solution to changing my thoughts, feelings and beliefs. That was an inside job that had to happen first.
And once it did, the stuff outside of me started to shift as well. It was so life changing for me and I knew that this was something I had to help other people experience as well.
I’m a bonafide theatre nerd
I’ve been performing since middle school. I have a degree in Theatre and performed professionally for many years before becoming a coach. (I even performed as a stand-up comedian for several years!)
Theatre is my first love, and while it is no longer my profession, it is still one of my greatest passions. I make sure to get on stage at least once a year, because it feels so good to play and do the things that light me up!
I grew up in NY, but currently reside in Jacksonville, FL
No one is more surprised by this turn of events than I am! This was certainly not part of my original plan.
But, none of the best things in my life were ever part of my original plan. (Including becoming a coach!)
In my experience, all of the best things in my life have been total surprises, and turned out even better than whatever I was imagining in the first place.
I have a raucous laugh
If we work together you will hear it often!
I had a meltdown in the shower on my best friend’s 30th birthday that led to the greatest epiphany of my life.
As I was getting ready to meet my bestie for bday drinks, I fell into a major hole of compare and despair.
I was nearly 30 myself, and my life looked NOTHING like the way I imagined it would. I felt like I was behind, and constantly falling short compared to my peers. I decided in that moment, as I washed my hair, that I could either wallow, or DO something.
While there were certain things that did feel out of my control at that point, I decided to focus my attention of the things that were within my power. I made a list of things I had always wanted to do but hadn’t yet.
I did one thing each month and ended up having the greatest year of my entire life.
I’ve done this a few times now, and as a result, I’ve experience some pretty epic moments. Here are a few of my personal faves through the years:
And if you care about this sort of thing...
I have been certified in Integrative Change Work via the Ethical Coaching Collective and hold a specialty certification as an Integrative Life Coach with the International Association of Counselors and Therapists.
I’ve also been certified as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, and completed my 200H Yoga Teacher Training through Hari Om Yoga School.
I’ve been coaching both kids and adults since 2015 and I really, really, really love my job!
OKAY, OKAY, OKAY! Enough about ME!
What about YOU?!?!?!
What makes you tick?
What are the things that absolutely light you up?
What’s something you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t yet?
Why haven’t you done that thing yet?
If you had a magic wand what would you wish for?
TELL ME ALL THE THINGS!!!!
Feel free to drop me a line, or better yet, let’s set up a call to see if we’re a good fit!
I can’t wait to get to know all about YOU!
