Been looking for a coach-client relationship that is exciting and compassionate and get's the job done?
Me too. I help you create the life you want. 

Here’s a little bit about me, so you know who the heck I am.

Like all good stories, mine starts with a little bit of trouble.

I've walked the path from the gritty streets of the Bronx to the corridors of corporate America. Born and raised in the streets of the Bronx, where stoops were my playgrounds and alleyways were my jungle gyms, and you know what? That upbringing bred something fierce in me - a deep love for creativity, storytelling, and busting through any limitations life tried to put on me.

Trust you are having the right experience

Flash forward a few decades, and I've got a BA and MFA in creative writing and I hit what looked like the writing jackpot, working with the big dogs at Penguin Publishing and The Children's Television Workshop in midtown Manhattan. But you know what? The concrete jungle started feeling like a prison for my wild spirit. So I broke free and blazed my own trail.

From running multi-million dollar PR campaigns at the top PR firm in New England to creating and developing historic education and coaching programs for troubled teens and young adults to live their best lives in Portland, Oregon.

As we move through a bunch of life experiences we realize we have the power to change and transform.

I've learned so much about how we all get stuck and need each other to really shine and enjoy life.  We are ALL born creative, but most of us let fear, doubt, and other people's limitations dim our brilliant sparks.

As a Master Certified Transformational Coach with two decades of prestigious experience, I'm here to be your personal torch-bearer, to stoke that creative fire in your belly until it becomes an unstoppable blaze.

Are you finally ready to shed your self-imposed creative shackles and start truly living as the radiant, unstoppable artist you were born to be? Snag yourself a strategy session with me, and let's light your candle. Your brilliance is my rocket fuel, and I can't wait to see you soar.
