More About Me

When I am not coaching, you can find me traveling with my family and soaking in all of the experiences the world has to offer.  My main values stem around work/life balance so I enjoy spending time with my husband and our beautiful daughter, and volunteering for various charities, such as “Feed The Troops,” "I Will Make A Difference: 2014," "Emerge," “Feed the Hungry,” and the “Angel Tree Project.”  It was an important realization for me, particularly while serving in executive level positions, that investing in my life away from work actually allowed me to enjoy my work even more.  It brings the balance that I need to be the best version of myself at all times.   I am taking every opportunity to “walk the talk” and be an inspiration to those who meet me so together we can change lives!

To give you a quick glimpse of my background.  I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a Masters Degree in Education.  I have worked in all aspects of Human Resources with my most recent corporate role as the Vice President of Talent Management and Learning for a Fortune 500 Financial Services Company.  I continue to learn and invest in my own growth by participating in many professional associations, sharing my gift as a professional speaker, and continuing to gain expertise through professional designations.

It's About the Journey

When we set a goal, we often become so focused on the outcome that we lose sight of what is actually important: the journey.

Life is about living in the moment, but when we are preoccupied with winning versus losing, and completely focused on simply crossing the finish-line of achieving our goals, it is easy to forget that.
