Life and Leadership Coach
I’ve spent 17 years in technology with most of it in a state of denial, overwhelm and exhaustion. I knew this wasn’t the life I wanted. I loved the idea of building things for people. I always have. The engineer in me wanted to use products to make people’s lives better. However, I found myself at companies like DoubleClick, Google, DialogTech. All focused on advertising and helping marketers, which wasn’t quite hitting my desire to make the lives of people better.
I found myself as the VP of Product Management and failing to get pregnant. I was more miserable and overwhelmed than I had ever been before, even when my health was at its worst in my 20s. I knew something had to change. I knew it was time to follow my heart and go after my dream of being a life and leadership coach.
During one of the women groups at my company, the speaker we brought in kept mentioning her coach. I took it as a sign that I needed to make the step to get into coaching.
And so, I started my journey to becoming a life and leadership coach and changing my life in the process. People now comment on how much more relaxed I am and happy I look. I’ve found things that I had lost over the years. A renewed connection to the universe and spirit. A renewed appreciation and love of my body. And so much more!
