This is me.
For years I was working in education administration and while I wasn't unhappy, I wasn't living to my fullest potential and felt that something was missing from my life. I kept wondering what I was passionate about. I was also suffering from feeling like I never had enough time in my life and I had a hard time unplugging from the never-ending emails to create a healthy work-life balance, which is something I truly value.
After a lot of soul-searching, I discovered Life Coaching, and my life abruptly changed. But this didn’t happen over night. I learned a lot through trial and error, and by taking many ‘missteps’ that finally led me to my purpose.
At first I thought I had to go to graduate school and so I enrolled in a practical online course to study healthcare management. I freaked out on the first day of class when I realized I wasn’t passionate about healthcare management and luckily was able to unenroll.
I then interviewed at several recruiting firms hoping to pull upon my strengths—connecting and helping people—to find a career where I felt purposeful. But the lifestyle and environment was not a good fit for me and I quickly realized recruiting was not going to be my next career.
FINALLY, I heard about life coaching from a former colleague and was intrigued by the relationships developed between coach and client, and by the process. I spent a whole afternoon/evening researching every coaching program out there and found myself enrolling in the iPEC certificate program.
For a full year I worked full time and studied the art of life coaching full time. It was a busy year, but I can honestly tell you I loved every minute of my coaching program. I learned so much about myself, how to support and listen to others, and I started to envision my business and how I could start to help other professionals who are struggling just like I had to balance all the various aspects of their lives.
For me, the moment I stepped into the world of coaching I fell in love. I love being able to connect, educate and mentor others. I finally feel purposeful, passionate and powerful in my career and in my life. And this journey led me to starting my own business. I feel grateful that now I get to help others who are feeling like there is never enough time in their life to balance the things they love. Who says we can't have a career we love AND time for relationships, self-care, creative outlets and health? I am here to help teach you how it can be done!
When I am not wearing my "coaching" hat, you can find me sweating it out at kickboxing, exploring Boston on foot, checking out a new restaurant or brewery with friends, or reading by the Charles River. An "extroverted-introvert," I love my social time and my reflective re-charge time.
If you think we would work well together, you are curious about optimizing your time and simplifying your life to get more out of it, don't be shy! Please reach out—I can't wait to meet you!
