I help people discover and draw upon their core strengths so they achieve their life/work goals with more ease. In everything I've done - and do - the driving force is a desire to help others get clear on what they truly want and achieve their goals. I believe that everyone can find joy in their life and work...some of us just need a little support and a sounding board along the way. I welcome questions and invite you to call me if you want to move forward in your life or work with more ease. Just reach out to me at or call 617 821 1102. I look forward to hearing from you.

A lifelong interest in personal and professional development inspired me to train as a co-active coach with Coaches Training Institute and as a holistic life and career coach with Goal Imagery Institute. This schooling coupled with my own life and work experience, reinvention and transformation informs my collaborative style —imaginative, intuitive, yet always practical and results-oriented.  Getting clear on strengths and setting realistic goals opens up room for making change and taking action. Taking action creates momentum and is rewarded by that great feeling of satisfaction that comes with achievement.

A coaching dynamic has always been evident in my varied and unconventional work life, which includes running an artist representation firm, a PR firm for creative entrepreneurs and a real estate business. Before that I was a communications specialist for performing arts organizations including ballet companies, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, First Night and Dance Umbrella, where I was immersed in a National Endowment for the Arts Advancement Grant organizational development program.  I've curated dozens of art exhibitions, produced everything from brochures to photo shoots to gala fundraisers and had a lot of fun creating a private functions rental business in a 1760’s Georgian mansion.
