“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”

maximize individual & organizational effectiveness
A proud Bostonian, I have been providing training solutions for companies and organizations seeking to improve employee wellness since 1998. I’ve had the privilege of working with a diverse range of leaders, including corporate executives, entrepreneurs, athletes, and professional men and women throughout New England.
A seasoned coach and corporate wellness facilitator, my mission is to empower leaders and organizations to expand capacity and optimize human possibility. At the heart of my philosophy is a belief that one’s ability to be fully engaged is dependent on emotional, psychological and physical well-being.
A former competitive athlete and fitness enthusiast, my coaching is based on the premise that performance is a by-product of skillfully managing human energy. Leaders who are internally driven by a sense of purpose are better able to sustain engagement, especially during times of uncertainty, change and adversity.
My personal journey of overcoming fibromyalgia syndrome inspired me to pursue a career in wellness and become a health coach. As a former spa owner on Boston’s Newbury Street, I routinely worked 14-hour days serving my clients, but did not give proper attention to my own self-care. Eventually, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome and later became addicted to prescription medication for five years.
After leaving the spa industry, I became intimately involved in several startup ventures founded by MIT alums. We took pride in pulling all-nighters and burning the midnight oil. I observed how several close friends sacrificed health and quality of life in the service of entrepreneurship and innovation.
Drawing from my personal experience and the success of my clients, I have discovered practical solutions that help leaders to maximize performance and productivity without burning out. My coaching approach integrates organizational neuroscience, positive psychology, performance psychology and contemplative practices such as mindfulness and meditation.
A method I use in my work with leaders is flow coaching, which you can learn about here.

Some friends I made along the way.
“Systems thinking is a discipline for seeing wholes. It is a framework for seeing interrelationships rather than things, for seeing ‘patterns of change’ rather than static ‘snapshots.’”
