After college, I took a job waitressing, uncertain of what I wanted to “be” when I grew up. Three years later, that job was just the training ground I needed to take a leap of faith into pursuing my dream of owning a business. I found a local breakfast/lunch restaurant for sale and asked my mom to partner with me. We quickly molded into our roles…my mom out front taking care of the customers and me, in the kitchen working with and training the staff. I was determined, focused and direct in my approach. I wanted every plate to be a representation of care, love and delicious food. Within three years we had several articles written about our place and won “Best of Philly” to boot. It was all about reaching inside and challenging myself to go just beyond what I thought I was capable of then, draw that out in others. Leading by example became the most powerful tool.
I love to learn, to expand myself and to keep moving forward. I later owned a gift shop and got my real estate license. In all my years in the service industry, I realized that it all was tied to my innate thirst for challenging myself to grow and to create something of value. I realized that what I really was being was a facilitator, looking for the very best in myself and translating that into helping others find the very best in themselves. So, all my work experience has really been about self-empowerment and to me that is the essence of life coaching. I’ve been coaching since 2016 and I cannot imagine doing anything else. Coaching helps people remember their value and how to extend that out to the world.
My passion is really connecting people with their innate knowing that they are powerful creators. With coaching you will be able to:
Reframe negative thoughts so you can see the opportunities in front of you
Identify your dream job, know that you can have it and watch as the path forward opens up
Stop sacrificing one part of life for another; have a family and a career if that’s what you want
Learn to make decisions based on facts, not limiting beliefs and other people’s opinions
Transform clutter — in your home and your mind — into order and clarity
Feel more connected to the world around you and your place in it
