your life strategy coach

“I believe to have an real impact in work and life, you have to bring 100% of yourself to the table.”


Catalyst Communities

You have brilliant ideas, but to share them with the world, you need to anchor them to a purpose and a plan. Smart as you are, you can’t do this alone. With a community of like-minded women, you can catalyze your creation in the world through the power of the mastermind.

Life Strategy Design

You have a life, but do you have a strategy? To excel in the work you do every day, you need to make the most of your whole life. Don’t leave it to chance. There’s freedom in having a plan. Want to learn more about designing the life you’ve always wanted?

Everyone has a life. Do you have a strategy?

75% of the women who have the talent to deliver the leadership our world needs are held hostage by two words: “not enough”!! In primary research with leading coaches, I’ve heard nearly every professional woman list reasons why she is not smart enough, pretty enough, credentialed enough, solvent enough… I’ve had enough!  I have a PhD in Not Enough and I can show you how to find freedom from toxic beliefs. My superpower is helping high-performing professional women design a whole-life strategy that unleashes the talent that the world needs. 


Your future is waiting. Are you ready to discover it?

What are you doing to catalyze your great idea?


There’s power in a team.

No matter what great idea you are launching, you can’t do it alone.

Harness the power of the mastermind.
