Tell us about your favorite Ellevate Network memory or success story. Why are you a member?

I absolutely LOVE connecting with some of the women here. I have been a part of other networking groups, but there is just something different about the women here. I have truly met some dynamic women who have some pretty incredible stories.

How would you define your professional mission?

My professional mission is to help female leaders use their voice and get their message out to the world. It is to help them show up as their unabashed self. I support them in remembering WHO they are. While professional goals and achievements are amazing-I find that most women forget who they are. I help them remember that and truly be an expression of the purpose that they are here to live out.

What qualities does it take for someone to be successful in your line of work?

Curiosity, compassion and listening at a really deep level.

Working with a coach myself and being willing to do the deep work on ME is non-negotiable. I often see coaches in my industry not understand that often, what they are really signing up for is working on themselves and their own growth. It's imperative if you want to move forward and really serve your clients at a high level.

What is one of your most memorable career accomplishments?

Honestly, just putting myself through coaching school and launching my business was a huge step for me. I had so many limiting beliefs and stories holding me back from the life I really wanted. Coaching school was grueling to be honest. It was an insane amount of deep internal work coupled with a big commitment of time but worth every penny. I absolutely LOVE what I do and love the women I serve. I cannot imagine not being in this career.

What project have you worked on that you’re most proud of? Why?

Watching the women of my group coaching program absolutely change every aspect of their lives. It never gets old to watch limiting beliefs get busted and women begin to redefine success on their terms. One of the women from that coaching program shared with me a testimonial that I will never forget. She said that hanging with me is like riding the best ride at the fair-you just don't ever want it to end. That's something I don't take lightly. I value each client and connect with them at a very deep level. Everyone matters to me.

We’d love to hear more about your career path. What led you to where you are today?

I had a complete lack of purpose in my life. I felt like everyday was groundhogs day-I had no direction or vision. Before coaching school I decided to take my love of photography and make it my profession. Because I was not grounded in who I was yet, I gave my energy to lots of people pleasing, proving and perfectionism. It was exhausting and really un-satisifying. My heart knew there was something more-something was missing. That yearning was what led me to sign up for coaching school. Fifteen years prior to signing up, a very wise friend had told me that I would a fabulous coach-the seed had been planted but took 15 years to come to fruition.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

Watching women fall in love with who they are and what lights their soul on fire. I feel so proud of my clients as they begin to use their voice to set boundaries and show up as their raw, real, unapologetic self. And to see them start taking action toward their dreams and their leadership always gives me chills. It never gets old.

What legacy do you hope to leave through your work?

To be a woman who supports other women in being proud of who they are and living a life that lights their soul on fire.

What is your morning ritual?

Hot water with lemon, silent meditation and my morning belief practice. These are my non-negotiables. I also move my body daily-it always makes me feel amazing!

What would you say your personal superpower is?

Building people up-making a safe space for them to really know they matter-their leadership matters, and their life matters.

What does success look like to you?

Success is being an expression of my purpose each and everyday. Success for me is creating high quality relationships with others, whether it's other female leaders, friends, or my very own family to own their purpose and their voice.
