As a Professional Coach, I specialize in helping clients experience more joy, discover greater clarity, and create transformation in their lives. But I wasn’t always a coach…
THE SHORT VERSION OF HOW I GOT HERE
I began my professional journey working in the entertainment industry. A few days into my first job, I also met my first “life coach” at an after-work women’s networking event. I had no idea this profession even existed, but I immediately felt drawn to it. Something clicked. Yet it took me years to trust that small voice inside.
Instead, I stayed safe, secure, and in my comfort zone. I listened to ego-based thoughts like "Are you crazy?! You JUST started your career in entertainment, and now you want to abandon that for some job you just learned about?" It was very, very easy to quiet what I really wanted because it didn't fit into what I'd always been taught life "should" look like.
It takes a heaping dose of courage to actually trust and follow our intuition, and go after what we really want. It's ballsy to take the less traditional path or switch courses altogether. As psychologist and author Brené Brown says, “The universe is not short on wake-up calls. We’re just quick to hit the snooze button.”
Welp, I hit snooze and spun into what is known as a “quarterlife crisis.” I became unhappy at work and in my relationship, and I felt incredibly lost and lonely. I didn't know how to turn my life around, so I dove headfirst into every self-help and personal development book, Ted talk, and online interview series I could find. I became an information sponge in hopes that once I acquired enough knowledge, things would shift. I took baby steps towards change, and learned a lot, but progress was slow.
Finally, enough was enough. I knew I needed support, and I was ready and willing to receive it. I attended my first personal growth women’s retreat, where I experienced coaching that inspired an intense emotional release and heightened sense of clarity. I walked away with motivation to jump-start a career that felt more aligned with my passion for helping people. I found the courage to leave the corporate entertainment world behind and began working for Danielle LaPorte, one of my biggest inspirations and favorite authors in the personal growth space.
I also hired my first coach, and attended the University of Santa Monica (USM)’s Spiritual Psychology program. In USM’s hands-on training program, I did deep inner work and my own personal healing, learned and practiced therapy-based skills, and gained extensive life coaching experience.
My own journey to create a soul-centered life inspired me to start my own coaching practice where I combine practical tools with deeper emotional healing and growth. I've gotten to the other side from feeling stuck, and I want to get you there too.
