As the proud mother of three grown children, including a son born four months premature with severe cerebral palsy, I love working with parents to help them figure out how to make the most of their lives. I truly enjoy helping individuals navigate parenting (even when it's messy) with joy, compassion and humor.
Through our family’s experience with CP, ADHD, PTSD, anxiety, depression and more, I continue to learn life’s lessons almost daily. I know parenthood is hard, but I also know that support and community and knowledge can enable us to be our truest and best selves and help those we love even more than we think we can. Improving our lives in this way can also positively impact our professional performance, enabling us to achieve greater leadership potential in a world that desperately needs courageous and effective leaders.
I received my certificate in leadership coaching from Georgetown University's Institute for Transformational Leadership and my leadership coaching accreditation through the International Coaching Federation (ICF). I am also a certified Personal Resilience Practitioner through the Resilience Alliance. I have experience coaching people at all stages of life to enhance their skills as professionals, parents, and partners.
Following a rewarding communications career with Procter & Gamble and several leading public relations agencies, I founded two municipal commissions on disability and a very special nonprofit in Connecticut. I recently co-authored a book on resilience and parents of children with disability, and I have also created a digital course to provide added support for parents and others raising kids of all ages. I love hard work and collaboration, especially when it facilitates positive change, personal transformation and increased fulfillment.
I have learned so much through these experiences and my formal coach training and now focus my curiosity, compassion and candor to help clients celebrate their stories and bloom where they are planted.
