ABOUT THE COACH

I graduated cum laude from West Chester University with a BS degree in Political Science, and worked in the health insurance industry for a short time before transitioning to a position as a senior account manager in the fulfillment industry where I worked for over 20 years. In 2016, I graduated from IPEC Coaching, an ICF accredited program for life coaches.

I married my college sweetheart and have been happily married for 23 years. My husband is full of light and good humor, and brings a smile to my face every day. We have two incredible sons who are our pride and joy and quite different from one another. My oldest is responsible, structured, self-driven, his own toughest critic, striving for the best, possessing a huge heart and an all-inclusive nature, and a wonderful sense of self. My youngest is talented in virtually everything he touches, quick-tongued and witty with an incredible sense of humor, and because life seems to come so easily to him, he has developed a more laid back personality.

Being in nature is therapeutic for me. My favorite place to be is on the beach with my toes in the sand and listening to the waves and the sound of seagulls. My other haven is my garden. With my hands in the dirt planting flowers and vegetables, I feel most connected to something larger than me. Planting a small seed and helping it to flourish into something beautiful is immensely satisfying.

Of course, to every yin there is a yang. As much as I love getting my hands dirty gardening, I also am a girls’ girl and am intensely interested in fashion. I think that clothes and shoes say quite a bit about a person and can dictate how they are perceived in the world. I have a love affair with shoes, especially heels, and love how standing even just a little taller gives me a different perspective of the world.

MY OWN JOURNEY

My relationship with my husband and raising our family has been one of my top priorities. I am the happiest when the four of us are together. Being a woman in a household filled with boys/men has its challenges…boys tend to talk loudly, listen to music loudly, walk loudly. There’s hardly a moment of silence or time for in-depth conversations. I came from a background in which there was a great deal of seriousness, and my husband’s lighthearted nature gives me a different view of how life can be lighter and more buoyant. Through him, I came to appreciate and embrace the playful nature of the men in my household and together we have created a joyful haven filled with laughter and happiness.

Being a mom and helping to raise our boys, teaching them about the importance of family, sitting down to dinners together, teaching them to cook, creating family traditions during the holidays, teaching them respect of themselves and others, instilling in them the ethic of working hard and having responsibility, teaching them to have compassion for others…. these have been some of the proudest moments in my life.

When my oldest son went away to college, I was not prepared for how devastated I would be. Since my children have always been my main focus, one of them leaving the nest left a hole in my world. I lost my direction and my identity. Feeling less and less needed at home and left with more time on my hands, I started to dive deeply within, examining my own life and achievements apart from my family, looking at my professional life over the past 20 years. I discovered just how unsatisfied I had been and how much I didn’t really know myself and my own needs.

I was drawn into life coaching and through it, found a surprising new self-awareness and a freeing of my long-forgotten inner child. How ironic that it took the absence of my actual child to bring me back to my inner child! The best surprise of all was, for the first time in many years, I had an undeniable feeling of pride in myself and what I was doing professionally. I had less stress and more energy. Creativity poured from me. I felt like I had discovered my own inner super powers.
