I’ve worked at the intersection of sustainability, government affairs and communications for a decade - from turning a policy internship at a tech company into a sustainability manager role over the course of six years to serving as both the Editor-in-Chief and a sustainability management consultant at BSR and, most recently, working as the director of social impact at the fastest-growing and most-hated company in the United States.
In this time, I have also fed my soul by teaching yoga, completing a modern healer training, participating in personal development immersions, practicing yoga all over the globe, and performing stand-up comedy.
I've realized that my purpose on this planet is to bring both of these sides of me together - to help YOU.
Oh, and as far as credentials go (if you're into that sort of thing), I completed the UC Berkeley Executive Coaching Institute in 2020, have a Masters in Pacific International Affairs from UCSD's School of Global Policy and Strategy, and earned my B.A. in Global Studies from UCSB (Ole!).
I have experienced burn-out, had a number of omg-what-on-earth-am-I-doing-with-my-life moments, wondered if anything I was doing was making an impact, paid off my student loans, taken a massive pay cut to live in an expensive city, felt guilty about needing to make money to support my life, created new jobs for myself, made more money than I ever thought I would make in my life (twice), lived through my fair share of imposter syndrome, and now taken the leap to do the thing that I’ve wanted to do as long as I can remember, which is both terrifying and the best thing I’ve ever done.
I’m not exaggerating when I say I’ve been a “coach” for basically as long as I could communicate: I was first published in Girls’ Life magazine at the age of 8, when they ran my original quiz (alas, title not mine), “Is he hot for you or cool as a freezie-pop?”, and I may or may not have hosted a Sex, Lies, and Radio show about relationships in college called “The Backseat.”
Throughout my career, I’ve been the go-to friend for career strategy conversations, resume advice, and productivity hacks. I have watched so many brilliant, badass women like you struggle with many of the same challenges that I fought my way out of with gratitude journals, yoga, books, podcasts, and transformational workshops and retreats - and I want to deploy every single tool in my metaphorical toolbox (which, let’s be real, is actually a very cute Everlane tote) to help you find calm, confidence, and clarity through the most direct route possible.
Are you feeling like you're teetering on the edge of burn-out? Wondering whether anything you're doing is actually making an impact? Having an omg-what-am-I-doing-with-my-life moment?
