A transformational life coach who asks, listens, reflects and understands how to make action plans simple and personal change effective.
I've been called a veritable 'possibilities coagulator' as I apply education, empathy and experience to help transform people, places and things into enjoyable processes and stellar results. I've written several books on the process of self-awareness and transformation which are featured on BeTheDream.com
As a self-starting achiever with ability to empower people and organize places and things to meet goals and objectives, I bring a history of personal and professional achievements capitalizing on a mindset for learning organizations; original ideas, self-discovery, unique realizations and an energetic attitude. My education, expertise and experience across several industries and leadership roles give a unique perspective and understanding of how to achieve results beyond expectations in virtually any environment. A ‘manyhatman’ who can serve many, I’m looking for the one to grow a future.

I’m humbled by the opportunities and successes. It’s imbued my coaching practice with priceless capacity for understanding people and helping them to turn their inner drive into practical results.
I've been inspired by serving others since my childhood. I've been one to offer assistance to anyone at any time in virtually any place. I've grown in capacity and value as I matured, including devouring metaphysical, spiritual and theosophical texts. It's just my nature; an insatiable curiosity toward how things work from the inside. People always seemed to open up to me with their challenges, fears and situations. I wasn't always able to help, but I did listen and reflect.
In my late 20s and working for an aerospace manufacturer as a project manager (responsible for $7 million/mo) I created and facilitated discussion groups for exploring the challenges of being highly sensitive to others and paranormal phenomena. I also started Be The Dream consulting services which focused on applying a balanced approach of business and spiritual best practices. Happy people get more done with less supervision and achieve beyond expectation as workgroups.
I went through a devastating divorce, left the corporate world and began anew. Now in my early 30s, one of the first opportunities in the corporate afterlife was producing a television show of my own design, peering into the depths of what keeps us afraid, angry, ignorant and immobile. I hosted over 100 shows with the same format, asking guests what prompted them toward their careers from both inner and outer perspectives, what fears they encountered on the journey and, most importantly, how they overcame them and found success. What became clear is how we think determines our results.
My passion has always been to achieve great things by myself and with others in each moment, whether task or vision oriented. After a plethora of career paths and various successes I was inspired to take my expertise to the next level professionally and acquire a life coaching certification. I’d proven methods and techniques I’d learned and practiced were extremely effective for changing attitude and direction when necessary. I had been working with a local healing arts school already and became a graduate among their second group of life coaches.
The next phase of my life was ready to unfold as inspiration and opportunity presented challenging and fulfilling clients and results. It is so rewarding to be able to demonstrate how the thinking and feeling about self-actualization and self-realization can affect life. I continue to be inspired by possibility I know is there and practice what I preach; focusing on attention, intention and actions that align and are congruent toward goals and objectives. Seeing the light go off in others’ eyes is ineffable.
From a client: Working with Zen has been an eye opening experience. During the intake process, which is sophisticated without being overly complicated, I was given time to more closely examine some of my ideas and goals. Upon our first meeting together, we were able to identify new items that were not immediately recognized by me and helped to clarify and rearrange some of my priorities.
Imagine being able to rearrange all the stuff your head in a way that produces better results in your life, almost magical with synchronicities that bring a sense of awe and inspiration. Wouldn't that make you feel a sense of joy and happiness you've probably rarely if ever had? That's what working with a transformational life coach is like.
