I was an interior designer from the South, moved to the West Coast to be a set designer, moved back to the Florida coast, taught yoga for 20 years, owned yoga studios for eleven years, taught the NFL how to touch their toes, and was a cover model for Yoga Journal Magazine.
I trained hundreds of students to step into leadership in and out of the classroom and as yoga teachers, entrepreneurs, and catalysts for change. I wrote a best selling book, became a Certified Lightyear Leadership Coach, and started a podcast One Creative Act.
I am a momma, wife, coach, speaker, consultant, and writer. I love coaching people to claim their upgrade so dreams are renewed, vision is seen, and action is taken. I work with entrepreneurs, coaches, creatives and leaders who want an integrated life and need the tools to get there.
I love listening to where you came from. But I'm much more interested in where you want to go.
I am passionate about my work. And my work is this — helping you shift out of fear and doubt and into robust contribution to your own life and the lives of others.
If it's been working okay up to this point or you're actually completely unsure how it's been working up to this point, but you see pure potential for so much more (ease, clear communication, defined results, unified vision , high performance with personal responsibility) let me work with you and your team for a day or a season. Weekly direction, specified practices, and organized check-ins to expand individuals into catalysts for one another within your organization. What works? People work. And I teach people how to listen, speak, and live into working in excellence.
One on one — I want to play that game.
It is! It's all a great game. And sometimes we just need a coach to support us to freedom and choice. I work with individuals to speak and claim what they want and understand how to take action to create it. I teach within an organized six sessions, with an optional monthly wake-up call for continued coaching. You will leave our game with vision, goals, new language, awareness and tangible practices to claim your upgrade on the daily.
I'm not a therapist. But my coaching has supported a lot of couples to take another look. (at each other!)
Should you want to step into big water and learn how to take major personal responsibility, I'm your girl. We'll go deep. But we'll do it with lightheartedness and love. If you want me to tell you that you're right and your partner is wrong, well, I don't even dip my toe in that puddle. If you're ready to roll up your sleeves and work, I would love nothing more than to coach you through six sessions of new opportunity for you and the one you love and want to love better.
