I'm just your average "good girl" chronic overachiever turned Life Coach & Burnout Expert working to help stressed out, high achieving women find balance and success on their own terms. If you feel stuck in a life you've worked really hard for, wondering how you can possibly slow down without losing out, let me tell you:  You CAN.

I've been where you are: performing well at work, juggling way too much, and being SO DANG HARD on myself, while inwardly wondering why I felt so exhausted. I spent years overthinking, overworking, and setting goal after goal so I could finally "relax" into my success - which never happened. 

But that's all changed for me...and it can for you too.

You might catch me reading self-help, watching Veronica Mars, or eating ice cream straight of the carton, but you'll never catch me hustling to feel worthy again.

About Me

"Underneath my outside face
there's a face that none can see.
a little less smiley,
a little less sure,
but a whole lot more like me."

find peace in your authenticity

Shel Silverstein

I spent way too many years playing the role of the "good girl". I was smart, driven, pretty, polished, responsible, dependable, flexible, and absolutely NEVER a problem....to anyone...ever. And I thought that it all kept me safe. And in some ways it did: It kept me from ever slowing down enough to question what I really wanted for my life.

Until one day I woke up and hardly knew who was staring at me in the mirror (I know, such a cliché, but it's true!) I spent my whole life chasing the next goal and never took a moment to think about whether it was what I actually wanted.  I neglected my loved ones and myself in the name of achievement. I was tired of looking like I had everything, but feeling empty and exhausted inside.

After rediscovering my power and my voice, I now help other women do the same. You can find yourself again, live more authentically, and stop striving so damn hard. You can just be you again. And bonus: You can love your life RIGHT NOW.

I was constantly chasing more. A better me. A better job. A better life. And all I felt was empty.

my story

I started to realize I had a problem when I kept chasing, grasping, and striving for goals I really didn't care about. It was like I couldn't help it. If I thought it would "look good" or that it would bring respect (i.e. love), I would jump at the chance.  Add to that a solid dose of  "good girl syndrome", and I could never be sure what I actually wanted for myself or my career. All I knew was that it felt impossible to  just be happy with my life. I was using fear to fuel my choices, and it was NOT working.

During my own coaching, I was asked, "Who would you be without your goals?", and I couldn't answer the question. It lingered with me for days unanswered. Now I work with  women like me who struggle with finding balance while having big dreams for their lives.


How I realized I am far more than my goals and achievements...

If the quote above didn't tip you off, I'm a huge 80s fan - the music, the movies - all of it. But clearly, that's not really why you're here.

Let's start from the beginning? (Well, maybe not the very beginning). 

I'm married to my best friend and college sweetheart, and we have the best little mini Aussie in the world (I'm not biased or anything!). We're childfree by choice (Gasp! Here's to owning my authentic choices and being brave enough to share them!), and we love to travel the world together.
