Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?
– Mary Oliver
Prior to building a career in coaching, I worked as a scientist and a project manager. As a proud type A in the corporate world, I was assured that “success” was right around the corner. Endlessly multitasking and spinning my wheels, I grew disenchanted and began my search for true inspiration and purpose.
I became an explorer of limits –geographically, physically, mentally– and recognized that our most critical resource is human energy. To live a fulfilled life, we need to be physically healthy, emotionally centered, mentally stimulated, and spiritually connected, We must optimize and nurture our human capital, our life force and energy.
What is a good life?” and “What is a life worth living? We cultivate our positive energy by learning to change the stories we tell ourselves about the events in our lives. After completing a number of coaching certifications, soul-searching retreats and yoga teacher trainings, I learned that the most helpful perspectives were rooted in a combination of science and philosophy. My upbringing on three different continents with very distinct and different cultures shaped my objectivity–the valuable awareness that there are different paths leading to inspiration, fulfillment and, ultimately, well-being. And so, advocating for mind-body connection, personal energy management, and an engaged life became my purpose and passion.
I reside in Washington, D.C., with my husband and daughters. I love traveling, meaningful conversations, music, laughing with my family and breathing deeply as often as possible.
