“As I reached the age at which I could chose to pursue that which interested me most, I made the decision to follow the call to coach. No matter what role I held, what team I was part of, I always felt my most authentic, most rewarded when I was working directly with people. We have so many options in our lives, and yet at times we are boxed in by our own perception of what is possible. I have experienced this many times in my career, I have tried on may different roles and ‘outfits’ – trying to fit the mold I thought was required. I tried to be the ‘super woman’ with career, family, friends and yet never felt ‘super’ about any of what I did. Over the last 10 years I have been on my own path of discovery and that path has led me to coach. With the support of my experience, the training and education I have received, I feel that I am now able to meet people where they are today, and help them to see a new horizon that is possible if they chose to pursue it.”
