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. As a coach and a healer, I support people to combat overthinking and second-guessing so they see what's really true for them and take action that's in line with their deepest values.
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 here on LinkedIn.
I also write. My work has appeared on The Mighty, Elephant Journal, and here on my blog.
