My home is in the Hudson Valley, New York where I enjoy taking walks and spending time with my family. My favorite creative outlets include writing, knitting and spending time reflecting in nature.
In 2011, after getting my bachelor’s degree in psychology from SUNY Binghamton I started my career as an advocate at a crisis center. After that I worked as a community habilitation specialist with individuals who experience disabilities.
It was around this time that I went to a free workshop featuring a live coaching demonstration. Watching this session, I loved how dynamic, creative and collaborative the coaching process was. It became clear that this might be the way forward for me.
My next career move saw me working as a job coach for people with disabilities. This work confirmed my passion in the field. In 2018, I went back to school and got a master’s degree in positive and coaching psychology at University College Cork in Ireland.
Along the way, I have worked with life coaches who have guided me to better understand myself and make choices that truly reflect who I am and what I want.
These coaches provided unconditional support and a safe and creative space to really be heard and seen. This had a positive impact on my ability to trust myself and go through life with more direction and motivation. It is my mission as a coach to provide this same space for growth to those I serve.
Today, being able to work with people to discover the change they want to create and partnering with them on their life's journey brings me great joy.
