Type-A at birth, I’ve been focused on being successful since I was old enough to read.
When I headed off to college, I didn’t care if pursuing a film degree seemed impractical. I didn’t think there was any way I could lose. No one was surprised when I headed to the big city, in pursuit of a brilliant career.

And I more than accomplished that! I crushed it, climbing up the ranks from admin assistant to top executive at a major ad agency. But, somewhere in my early 30s, it hit me. I was overweight, overworked, and uninspired. I realized that I had built one heck of a career, but I hadn’t built a happy life.
It took me years to climb out of that rut. A combination of healthy habits, self-improvement learning, and taking personal responsibility for my own happiness got me there.
Too many people think they need to scrap their corporate identities to be happy. I’m living proof that is simply not true. In fact, if you do it right, your corporate success can give you the means, resources, and connections to help you architect the life you want to live.
One of the things that I love the most about the life I’ve created is getting the chance to coach other ambitious women about how to build a kickass career that helps fuel a full and beautiful life by their own design. Each week on my podcast, I share real-world advice and tools that you can confidently use to take action, get noticed, and ultimately build the life of your dreams.
I can now say without hesitation that I’ve built an incredible life. I have a thriving career as an executive doing a job that I love, a wonderful husband and life partner, a brick and mortar business, and quality time with the family and friends that I love.
