Connecting with people and helping them gain clarity and achieve their goals has always been a passion of mine. Before becoming a coach in January of 2016, I spent 12 years practicing law as a business lawyer and litigator. I was doing great work and was on track to becoming a partner and progressing in my legal career. But it didn’t fulfill me and I felt out of place. I knew I wanted a change but had no idea where to start or what I should do. I began getting physically sick from the stress, frustration, and exhaustion. I needed help and decided to hire a coach.

It was like I’d been holding a key but had no idea which door it opened, and my coach helped me find the door. My coach helped me turn the key and open the door. In particular, she helped me understand how to find a career that better aligned with my unique talents and strengths. She also helped me identify my core values and personal definition of success. I fell in love with the coaching process and realized my best moments as a lawyer had nothing to do with the law; they were when I mentored and coached my friends and colleagues on career challenges and goals.

I view the coaching process as a partnership. Through proven methods of coaching, I help clients increase their self awareness, set and achieve goals, build a personal brand, enhance leadership and communication skills, optimize performance, and manage their time. I bring to coaching sessions my genuine interest in people, curiosity, and energetic nature. I feel so fortunate to work with my clients and help them to find the door that their key opens, and help them take their next steps toward their future.

I graduated from Miami University with a B.A., and The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law with a J.D. I obtained my coaching certification through the World Coach Institute (ICF accredited), and I am certified in the Birkman Method. I live in Columbus, Ohio with my husband, 2 kids and 3 dogs.
