I love my job, and I hope to have the opportunity work with you! My job feels like a *privilege.* I talk to fascinating people all day long, and help them make their dreams come true. Especially getting to work from home in gorgeous, green Seattle, where I live with my life/business partner (and founder of Knack Consulting) and our three dogs.
I work mostly with creatives, freelancers, feminists, solopreneurs, and nonconformists of all stripes. You don’t have choose between passion and profit. Joy and safety aren’t mutually exclusive. You do have to learn how your brain works, so it stops f***ing with you.
COACHING IS MY PASSION, AND A CAREER THAT LEAVES ME HAPPIER AND MORE INSPIRED AT THE END OF EACH DAY THAN AT THE BEGINNING.
I discovered coaching in 2014, while on sabbatical from my position as partner in a boutique branding agency in New York City, and I've been discovering, growing, and working in the field ever since. My approach is a unique combination of who I am as an individual and the brain-based coaching method which I've studied through New York University and the NeuroLeadership Institute.
Frequently, this means I'm working with creatives - designers, architects, and opera singers are all in my roster. It always means I'm working with creative thinkers, to my great joy.
I work with creative thinkers like you for a reason - and it's not only because your minds and imaginations are the real magic that fuels me day by day. I've also walked in your shoes. As a classically trained opera singer who taught herself graphic design before joining the branding agency mentioned above, I understand the courage and stamina it takes to define your own journey.
Coaching is more than a career for me - it's a true vocation. It's flexible, creative, challenging, inspiring, and allows me the freedom to work from home with my two french bulldogs, Ludwig & Violet.
It even allows me to travel the world, one of my other great passions, while working. It's my dream job because it fits so many of my core values (which is something we'll definitely explore if you decide to work with me).
I did say I would give you an opportunity to get to know me more as a human - not just as a coach. So here are a few details to round out the picture you're forming of me in your mind. I'm a neuroscience-obsessed, big-hearted fairy godmother with a practical side. Get in, fam.
