||WHO am I, and WHY I do this?|
I first moved to NYC expecting to become a famous opera singer. I joined the ranks of professional opera singers, I just didn't become famous. I also climbed up and down the corporate ladder, and began an on-going study of the spiritual practice of indigenous cultures. What drove each of these seemingly disparate paths was my desire to excavate and step fully into my own power. I use the word "excavate" because I believe every newborn enters this world fearless, confident, and completely uninhibited. It seems that as we "grow-up" we learn to lose all that and more. Often our self-esteem, self-acceptance, and self-knowledge, shrivels and gets covered over. Coaching is a perfect way to excavate and reclaim the authentic self.
I hold a BFA in Theatre Arts from Stephens College and am a member of Actors Equity Association, with multiple decades of opera and music theatre performance credits. For over ten years, I have held administrative positions in the legal industry.
I am a member of the International Coach Federation, a graduate of the Coaches Training Institute, acknowledged by ICF as one of the top schools in this country, and certified by the New York Open Center. Trained in both "co-active" and "transformational" coaching, I offer many perspectives in my coaching toolbox to bring balance, fullfillment and transformative change to your life.
