I believe that the world is brighter when we pursue work aligned with our values, purpose, joys, and strengths.

As a career coach and trainer, my approach is to foster optimal living for my clients through increased momentum and accountability towards their goals.

I bring warmth and empathy, a sense of humor, active listening skills, and career development expertise to work that I find joyful. My clients report higher rates of success and happiness when they engage me as their coach.

In 2009, I initially started my coaching practice to offer support to non-profit professionals like myself facing issues of burnout, uncertainty about their career goals, and discomfort asking for what they want and deserve. Since then, I have expanded my focus to serve clients in diverse industries and sectors often dealing with similar issues, with an underlying theme of navigating a career or life transition.

In addition to my private practice, I work part-time as a Career Advisor & Adjunct Professor at American University, where I teach undergraduate students how to start exploring and developing their careers.

I am a Certified Personal and Executive Coach from The Coaching and Positive Psychology (CaPP) Institute. I am the proud recipient of the 2012 WIN (Women’s Information Network) Young Women of Achievement Award as an Innovator/Social Entrepreneur.

In my free time, I love to stroll through my lovely and historic Hyattsville, MD neighborhood, stretch at the yoga studio, and see live music. I am active with Girls Rock! DC, which inspired me to take up the electric guitar.
