Do you feel stuck in your career?

Do you have ambitions to get to the next level, but you're not sure 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 are.

Successful professionals need support. They need coaches, mentors, teachers and peer networks to lean on to further their development and help navigate the inevitable challenges in their career. 

It’s all too common for people to build and develop their careers based on happenstance and ego alone. The ego drives us in profound ways, both positive and negative, and we're often lured by things that give us instant gratification – things such as power, status, financial wealth, etc.

These things are important, but they alone only provide temporary satisfaction, and before you know it, you may find yourself right back at square one, wondering why you feel so dissatisfied. This is why so many people after 5, 10, 20, or even 30 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 and who we want to be while committing to daily actions that bring us closer to our goals.

This work involves: 

-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

-Commitment for consistent and strategic action

The reality is, you already have most of what you need to get to that next level. All you need to do is learn how to listen and commit to action. Are you ready to dive in?

Here is what we'll do:

1- Identify and leverage your unique strengths and assets in your career

2- Develop your career mission and guiding principles that will guide you throughout your career

3- Create your authentic professional brand and narrative 

4- Design a strategic job search that reduces your time spent searching and applying to jobs 

5- Polish your job search materials such as resume, CV, cover letter, and Linked In profile so recruiters notice you right away

6- Learn how to network like a pro and build your networks

7- Adopt the mindset of successful professionals and leaders 

8 - Build a community of peers you can lean on for the duration of your career



I’m a career coach, organizational development and HR executive, social justice advocate, and lover of all things travel, the outdoors, food and adventure. During the past 15 years, I’ve worked with hundreds of people from around the globe to uncover their unique leadership stance and voice, putting them in the driver's seat of their careers and lives.

I'm deeply passionate about supporting people to find intention and purpose in their careers. I help my clients dig deep to understand themselves clearly, so they can center on what's most important to them in their careers. I also help them shed the many layers of their egos to uncover patterns that continue getting in their way and holds them back by changing them into behaviors that get them closer to their goals.

I'm a certified professional coach through the Leadership That Works, Coaching for Transformation program. 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, I now live in

Seattle with my husband Darren and our cat Pinch. We’ve been in Seattle for more than a decade now and while I can't say I love the rain, the Pacific Northwest region continues to amaze me.

Happy clients
