Professional 

As a Human Resources executive at Goldman Sachs, I focused on the wellness and work-life needs of thousands of employees. This experience, coupled with my Masters degree in Organizational Psychology from Columbia University, gives me a unique perspective when working through the challenges my clients face in all aspects of their life.

This mirrors how I work with my coaching clients as well; my goal is to take you from where you are right now, and help you move forward with compassion, confidence, and full support.

My certificate in Positive Psychology Coaching from the Wholebeing Institute helped me connect all of my past experiences and has provided me with tools to better serve my clients.

Personal 

I am married with two children ages 15 and 13 and an energetic rescue dog.  As a family we love to travel, play tennis and gather in our family room together to watch movies, TV shows and play competitive board games.  In my spare time, I love to read both fiction and nonfiction as well as take my dog on long walks.

My experience with positive psychology and yoga has greatly benefited me as a mother, wife, and friend, and I look forward to sharing these benefits with my clients. In my personal life, I have learned first-hand the benefits of working with other people to achieve my goals and I am grateful for the opportunity to work with my clients to help them achieve their individual goals.
