My prior career included working in theater and television production, management, corporate training and visual arts where I frequently served high-performing, high-level professionals. A hard stop from a series of unexpected (and intentional) changes led me on a deep personal reflection path. This included sharp turns from quitting my job, moving across the globe and caring for my dying father, among others shape-shifting events.
Along the way, I noticed big decision-makers had minimal safe places to be real, to be heard, to be vulnerable. (Including me) No matter my career title, somewhere between the chaos and order of life, I learned I was an expert at pin-pointing people’s strengths and barriers while still being supportive, and that people sought me out for this "touch". I have the capacity to "pierce the veil like no other" as one client described. That’s when I knew coaching was the next phase of my career.
