My Story

Mastering the inner game of life.
Through leadership development and performance coaching, I empower high-achieving individuals to actualize their full potential. With a results-driven method rooted in neuroscience, positive psychology, and whole-person coaching techniques, I help my clients succeed in and out of the boardroom and on and off the field.

My unique mind-body-spirit approach delivers results. Through one-on-one, personalized coaching, you’ll experience greater focus, energy and presence. Increased performance and resilience. More meaningful relationships. Newfound confidence. Greater well-being. True fulfillment. It’s a strategy to help you compete and win at the game of life.

I leverage my experience as a communications, performance, and mindfulness expert, accomplished entrepreneur, and elite athlete to equip leaders with the tools, methodology, and energetic boost they need to succeed. I hold coaching certifications through the International Coaching Federation and Columbia University’s 3CP program, which is grounded in Columbia’s High Impact Coaching Process and the Science of Human Performance.

Passionate about mindfulness practices for both brain and body health, I’m a meditation teacher and course creator for Insight Timer, the world’s number-one ranked free meditation app. I’m also a licensed NBI consultant, helping clients assess their thinking preferences to leverage insights for creativity, innovation and communication strategies in all areas of life.

I understand the pressures and demands to always be “on” – to perform at a high level and be an exceptional team player. Many of my clients share the same background. They're leaders, professional athletes, and high-performers in their fields. They're driven to win – to create a positive impact in their own lives and the world around them. They know success – and they're ready for more. As many of my clients are discovering in our work together, true success is more than just what we achieve on the outside. Feeling joyful and at peace from fulfilling our life’s purpose and leaving behind a lasting legacy is invaluable.

Manifesto

I believe in warm hugs, the power of prayer and meditation and fresh starts. I believe in honoring my body with positive self talk, trusting I am on the right path and releasing all that no longer serves me. I believe in inhaling clarity, and exhaling self-limiting beliefs. I believe I am worth everything my heart desires, and giving myself just that. I believe I am strong enough to overcome anything that comes my way. I believe in asking for help. I believe in laughing so loud everyone in the room looks over to see what is so funny. I believe in creating the space for people to be their most authentic, vulnerable selves. I believe in smiling for no reason at all. I believe the best is yet to come, and saying ‘thank you’ for all of life’s tough lessons. I believe I can do anything I choose is important enough. I believe in me, and I believe in you. We were born to be spectacular. Let’s do this!
