ABOUT ME

"What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"- Mary Oliver

My clients find power in shifting their awareness and focus to create new actions and practices that restore connection and balance. I use a combination of my global corporate experience coupled with the principles of Ontological Coaching, Performance Coaching, and Health and Wellness Coaching, Yoga, Mindfulness, and Usui Reiki to customize sessions that help you expand your range and accomplish what matters to you. 

I can empathize and connect deeper with clients because of my transformative experiences. I spent 10+ years in healthcare across the USA and Asia Pacific. In my 9 years at Johnson & Johnson, I held various roles in Compliance and Regulatory Affairs. With each new role and leadership opportunity, I became more interested in harnessing individuals' unique strengths to create a more diverse, inclusive, and effective working environment. This translated into building strong communication channels between global, regional, and local teams to increase efficiencies across Regulatory Operations.

 

My proudest accomplishment at J&J was helping to start the Mental Health Diplomats within Asia Pacific, an employee resource group focusing on mental self-care and eliminating the stigma. This initiative was significant and personal since it was my way of honoring a close family member who died by suicide. 

However, my most significant physical, emotional, and spiritual transformation was becoming a mother to my son Kai. It's been the most perfectly imperfect journey navigating the paradoxes of motherhood. And yet, fully embracing this new identity enables me to coach from a space of greater empathy and connection. My coaching distinctions and embodied practices elevate my presence and self-compassion as a mother. Kai is my greatest mirror and continues to teach me so much in this one wild and precious life.
