I’m a very positive, vibrant person by nature but I spent years not excited to be alive. I was sick for more than a decade, operating under different diagnoses that did not feel right. Eventually I learned that I had chronic Lyme Disease, Bartonella, parasites and a heart condition.
I got that and a lot more. In just a couple months of being coached, I had several important breakthroughs. I found doctors and healers I loved, I built the support network I had always wanted but never had, and ultimately achieved the healthiest period of my life since childhood. I fell in love with coaching and knew that I wanted to use the skills and tools I learned to support my tribes - folks with chronic illness, queer folks, and people who live and breath social change.
Before becoming a coach, I was as a grassroots organizer, a regional director in the 2008 election to elect Barack Obama, a recruitment director, a event planner at Harvard, a manager of an inside sales team, and a nonprofit board president. I got into yoga after my third burnout in 2013 and have been teaching in different capacities ever since.
I believe strongly that our bodies are our greatest teachers and when we learn to listen to and honor them, we are able to achieve success in all aspects of life.
I have been trained as a coach by the Academy for Coaching Excellence and I am pursuing certification with the International Coach Federation. You can read more about my experience in other jobs and check out testimonials from past clients on LinkedIn here.
