Create a future that fits you.

I believe creativity, emotional management, and Design Thinking is how we create a fulfilling life. Everyone has it within them, it just needs to be trained like a muscle.

Or check out my blogpodcast, and YouTube to learn about the tools that have helped me!

I write about my journey to create purpose in my life and share what I learn in developing my own emotional intelligence and resiliency through the transition out of the corporate world and into entrepreneurship.

I want to provide the space for more raw, vulnerable conversations with this podcast to break out of social stigmas and the limiting beliefs we absorb about ourselves from society. I document my own story as well as other social-impact entrepreneurs, creatives, and coaches who are on the path to create more meaning in their lives.

Learn the tools that have helped me increase my own emotional intelligence and resiliency. Listen in on how I’m overcoming loneliness, complacency, being lost, being a people-pleaser, and meekness by better understanding how my emotions impact my thoughts and behaviors.

I use Design Thinking to help you manage your stress and emotions, create clarity in your life direction, and deepen your relationships.

Discover

Identify where you’re at right now. What do your emotions tell you? Uncover your strengths, weaknesses, and values.

Define

Dream! Dream big! What would your ideal state look like? What would you do with no limitations? What are all of your requirements?

Design

How do we reverse engineer those dreams? How can we design the steps to get you there? Who would be around you?

Do

Do the Nike. Put it into play. Test out your roadmap. Iterate on emotional intelligence through experience.

Dance

Having fun is the most important aspect of this. Celebrate your wins, learn from your losses. Life is a dance.

I found our session relaxed but really helpful. You did a good job listening and helping me synthesize my own thoughts, which were quite scattered into two succinct points. I feel more clear about how I can gain a better handle on mixing career and family. Honestly, your demeanor is very well suited for coaching. I was very comfortable talking to you from the start. You are calm and a good listener, you didn’t interrupt and asked good questions.
