My coaching practice is designed for entrepreneurs in recovery from addictions and disruptive life challenges. Whether you are in start-up mode or are already a business owner with a desire to achieve more, you will benefit from my personal and professional experience so you can thrive, serve others, and make the money you need to live well.  Since 2014, I have been a mentor/coach and have helped many recovering professionals overcome serious life challenges and achieve their business and personal goals and dreams.

Coaching, mentoring, and being a trusted advisor to entrepreneurs capitalizes on everything I’ve learned and experienced during my 30+ year entrepreneurial and executive career. I began my recovery journey in 1993. Armed with new-found strength, energy and wisdom, I started and built a multi-million-dollar events division for a global company. While there, I created a successful mentoring program, which was quickly adopted world-wide. Thus, my love of mentoring and coaching began.

When my career lurched to a stop in the late 90s due to corporate burn out, which was exacerbated by underlying personal struggles that surfaced 3 years into my recovery, I left my high-powered position and tried other ventures which failed in a big way. I thought my life was over. At the time, I didn’t realize that those experiences were gifts. For the first time, I was able to focus on me.  I used the opportunity to reinvent myself emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I created balance in my life.

After 2 years of unemployment and extensive recovery work, I launched a new business: a thriving dog walking company, which grew to serve 65 dogs a week. I overcame seemingly insurmountable financial and emotional challenges and survived and thrived against all odds. Most recently, I tackled my food addiction and lost over 135 pounds over a few years and gained more peace and serenity, clarity, focus and joy in my life.

My promise to you: I will use all that I have learned as a business leader and entrepreneur in recovery to guide you to achieve your professional and personal goals and dreams.
