Have you ever wondered?
WHAT JOB WILL MAKE ME JUMP OUT OF BED IN THE MORNING?
Over the course of my career and my life the moments that have lit me up the most were the ones where I supported someone to embrace their gifts, talents and their unique voice. I saw that when people were able to do that they became better leaders in their personal and professional lives as well. I came to realize that helping people make these connections was my passion and my unique contribution. That’s what led me to become a coach. I love working in partnership with people that want more for themselves: more joy, more peace, more love, more satisfaction, more success and more self-belief. I love supporting people to creatively work through the obstacles that get in their way and start building fulfilling lives. I once told myself that that wasn’t a real job and now it’s what I do.
A few years ago, I survived cancer. I was already a coach at the time, but that experience awakened a deep appreciation for enjoying life and a fighting spirit within me. Surviving cancer made me keenly aware that you can plan all you want for tomorrow, but if you aren’t actually living today what does it matter? If you aren’t pursuing your passions today what are you waiting for? Now, I utilize this awareness and these strengths to be a fierce ally in service to your growth and success. As your coach, I will support you and also push you to live more fully and to pursue the things that light you up the most right now.
If your first reaction to that is “that sounds nice, but…” then you really should think about getting a coach even if it isn’t me! I know we can’t all just quit our jobs tomorrow and do whatever we want, but why can’t we start having more of what we want today? What’s holding you back from living more fully? What story are you telling yourself that you need to rewrite? What’s the limiting belief that keeps you stuck in the same unfulfilling place for months and years? What would you be doing right now if you truly believed you could make it happen? That’s what we work through together so that you can live the life you are longing for. I strongly believe in the resourcefulness, resilience and capacity for transformation that lives within all of us. I would love the opportunity to help you connect with your passions, strengths and dreams and to support you to create the changes you want most in your life.
I am a Certified Professional Coach (CPC). I received my training from the Leadership That Works Coaching for Transformation program which is an International Coaching Federation (ICF) accredited program. I am credentialed as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) by the ICF. I also hold a Masters of Public Health (MPH) in Community Health Education from Hunter College. Read more about my take on coaching.
I live in Brooklyn, New York. I love game nights with my partner Jerome and our friends, reading fantasy and sci-fi books, watching horror movies and watching Days of Our Lives (I love my stories!) I love eating delicious vegetarian food and getting out into nature when possible. I’m also an unapologetic tennis fanatic! Vamos Rafa! I’m passionate about social justice and fighting to make this world better for every one of us. I believe that starts with each one of us working on our own healing, development and growth. I look forward to learning about what you love and supporting you to have more of all of it.
