GET TO KNOW ME
My calling is to help clients break through the obstacles that keep them from achieving their highest goals and desires. Life's too short to be unhappy, unsure, or unfulfilled. I understand the unique challenges of working in healthcare, and am equipped to help you get results in spite of these challenges.
New nurses have a different set of needs to be successful. I have 3 decades of experience and a deep desire to empower the next generation of nurses. Inspiring and empowering new grads is my superpower!
I believe that life happens FOR you, not TO you. From the highest highs to the lowest lows, and everything in between. It has been challenging to remember this at times, but it's true- EVERYTHING happens for a reason.
I wouldn't be here if it didn't.
I am single mama of two adult children pursuing their dreams and making me proud! Dog-mom to a little pup that really is my 3rd child. I happen to identify with Wonder Woman and have a WW backpack complete with cape.
I find energy and clarity during long hikes or running trails with music streaming through earbuds (see how music plays a role in motivation here)
I give back as a volunteer Wish Granter for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. (Read about my favorite wish here)
Professionally I have enjoyed a long career as a Registered Nurse working in patient care, education, and leadership roles. I assist with interviewing, hiring, training and mentoring new staff. I was recognized by the DAISY Foundation for my work with new grad RNs. (Read more about it here)
While my formal education is a BSN from the University of Washington and Life Coach Certification from Coach Training Alliance, the most valuable education has come from unconventional schooling.
I learned to connect with people from all walks of life while working at the Pike Place Market.
I learned about self development from years of reading books, attending seminars (Tony Robbins Firewalker!),
online courses, watching videos, listening to tapes (dating myself here) and podcasts every chance I get.
I learned to value the individual, seek to understand their unique experience of the world, and celebrate the differences of other cultures through world travel and as an exchange student.
I learned through witnessing thousands of births that we all are the same at the core-
perfect beings full of love.
And just like you, I continue to learn from life experiences that force me to grow in ways I never thought possible.
Every life has meaning and purpose. We all have gifts we are meant to share with the world.
Coaching is my gift. I'd love to share it with you.
