The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
As an educator and speaker, I have experienced the thrill of helping people improve their interpersonal and public communication skills, overcome obstacles and reach their dreams throughout my career. As a lifelong learner, I discovered a body of research on personal transformation in my doctoral program that prompted me to pursue coaching.
As someone with a number of creative pursuits, I have always felt like I do not fit neatly into a box. My deepest connections have been with other creative types and entrepreneurs who take risks and navigate the edge. I know about the struggle with existential questions, and what there is to find on the other side struggle.
David Kruegar, a former coach of mine, once said, "Who would want a guide who had never been lost?" Some life experiences that have made me stronger include the sudden death of a partner when I was 25, a lengthy depression, organizational chaos, a child with dyslexia, and my own little "sparkle" that would sometimes shine a bit too brightly.
I look forward to connecting with you.
