Who I work With
Visionaries in the Technology Age
I am fascinated by the pace of technology and what is required of our leaders in this space. Tech leaders must manage the increased complexity and chaos and at the same time find their compelling purpose and vision to ground them within the change. I feel called to support these leaders in finding what is fulfilling, purposeful and REAL. Mindfulness in their own leadership is key to not being swept away by the latest trend.
Leaders are busy creating connection, purpose and vision for others and I like to create a sacred space for them to explore that in themselves. Connected, purposeful leaders become much more than leaders, they become visionaries and examples for those they serve.
Are you a visionary leader ready to bring your fullest potential to the world?

my origin story
How did I come to doing this work?
I was born into a family with roots in science, literature, language and food. I found a passion early on when I discovered my love of working with others and my fascination with the human spirit. I spent much of my childhood feeling “too much” for this world and I felt my big emotions might take over. I was so curious to understand if others had this rich internal world and if at times it felt heavy to manage. I was inspired by learning, friendship, new cultures, new experiences and of course what it means to be human in this world. I spent my 20s conquering every goal I had for myself from climbing the corporate ladder, finishing my masters program, climbing Mt. Rainier and finishing my yoga teacher training. At times it was fulfilling but it also felt heavy and lot of shoulds and judgments, mostly from myself. My late 20s and early 30s helped me realize that my quest to conquer had left me exhausted and curious as to who I was without all my doing. That is when my journey quickly turned inward. That inner exploration led me to reconnect with my lightness and my natural state of finding ease and delight. I found the deep love I have for myself, I fell in love and got married, gave birth to my three boys and spent time activating the feminine energy in myself that had been longing for expression. I found WAY more time for laughter, joy and silliness. My 40s have been the blend of both, a space for doing and being. A place to live my work in the world while staying grounded to my purpose, my joy and my bright center.
