ARE YOU READY TO LEVEL UP YOUR CAREER?
Do you feel stuck in your career?
Do you have ambitions to get to the next level, but don’t know how to get there?
Do you feel like you’re meant for something more, but don’t know exactly what it is?
Maybe you’re not sure of how to leverage your unique purpose, talents and strengths, or you’re not clear on what they actually are.
Successful professionals need support, and the most successful ones understand this. They have coaches, mentors, teachers and peer networks to lean on to further their development and help them navigate challenges.
It’s all too common for us to build and develop our careers based on ego alone. The ego drives us in profound ways, both positive and negative, and we are often lured by things that give the us instant gratification – things such as success, power, status, financial wealth, etc.
Don’t get me wrong, these things are likely important, but they alone only provide temporary satisfaction, and before you know it, you’re right back at square one wondering why you feel so dissatisfied. This is why so many people after 5, 10, 15, 20, or even 25 years into their careers, suddenly realize:
“Wait, is this where I want to be?"
"Is this really the work I should be doing, or am I meant for something more?”
We’re all meant for something more – and we can have that “more” by taking time to reflect on who we are, who we want to be and commit to daily actions that bring us closer to our goals.
This work involves the following:
Deep work of your mind, body and soul.
Inquiry and curiosity about your values, motivations, skills and talents.
The courage to ask your soul what your real purpose and contribution is in the world.
Resiliency, self-acceptance and self-love.
The reality is, you already have everything you need within yourself to get to that next level. All you need to do is learn how to listen and then commit to action.
I’m a career coach, organizational development and HR professional, social justice advocate, and lover of all things travel, outdoors, food and adventure. During the past 15 years, I’ve worked with hundreds of people from all around the globe to uncover their unique leadership stance and voice, putting them in the driver's seat of their careers and lives.
I am deeply passionate about supporting people to live their dream life. Of course, career is just one aspect of life, but it is a major one and a perfect case study on how people behave, interact with challenges and feel motivated. I use career as the context to peel back all the layers of ego and noise to uncover patterns that continue to be barriers in your career and life. Once we become aware of those patterns and where and when they were born, we can then change them, so they serve you rather than hinder you.
I am a certified professional coach through Leadership That Works Coaching for Transformation. I also hold a master’s degree in public administration from the University of Washington, and a bachelor’s degree from Warren Wilson College. Originally from Northern California (a couple hours North of the Bay Area), I grew up on my family’s 100+ year old pear farm. My family started farming pears in the Yokayo Valley of Northern California in 1906 and was an integral part of the community. This part of my early life shaped my lens of the world which still informs my life today.
I currently live in Seattle with my husband Darren and our cat Pinch. We’ve been here for more than a decade now, and while I can't say I love the rain, the Pacific Northwest region continues to amaze me.
