"is there more to the life i'm living right now?"
OOOH, BEEN THERE - ASKED THAT.
Let’s back up a couple of years…
In my early 30s, I upped and left a successful career in the music industry.
I was *supposedly* thriving in the highly sought after world of live events, and working on tours, festivals and special projects with all of our favourite artists.
(Ever been to a Drake show in his hometown? It’s absolutely bonkers.)
I had received promotion after promotion, a move across the country, with more + more super unique events hitting my desk.
But I was also -
constantly tied to my inbox
without any boundaries with regards to my “work/life balance” (like, not even one)
surviving constant urgency (and thin margins of error), which kept my cortisol pumping every minute of every day
LONG STORY SHORT, I BURNED MYSELF OUT...
LIKE BIG TIME.
Turns out the career I had created for myself was:
a) not even close to being aligned with my most authentic self and
b) going at a clip that was 100% not my speed
That’s when my depression reared it’s big sad, foggy, hopeless head to tell me to wake the f*ck up and make some changes.
I longed for…
Ease - not urgency.
Greater connection - not ego.
Projects that honoured how ‘radical’ I was on the inside - not partnerships with companies that hurt people + the planet. Ew.
Nature - not an office.
‘Feminine’ energy + leadership - not the hustle/grind BS
An inbox that didn’t have 207 emails that needed a reply 5 mins ago
A life where I didn’t have to edit myself or play by someone else’s rules
So I created a plan to transition out of that industry and mustered the (hell of a lot of) courage required to leave a burgeoning career to pivot into the wild, wild world of entrepreneurship.
(Oh, and move back to the ocean.)
So after two years of leaving behind email subject lines like:
*Revised* Adele Offer | V.12
Gaga - Guest List Request
Harry Styles | Final Ticketing Set Up
(wow, times flies!)
I completed not one but two training programs to learn the skills and techniques that I now use to support my clients,
Became certified in executive coaching so that I could fully step into my craft (and have the credentials to back it)
Have built my dream job that is fully aligned with my values and feels more fulfilling everyday - not to mention is a hell of a lot of fun.
I EMPOWER CONSCIOUS SEEKERS AND CHANGEMAKERS - JUST LIKE YOU - TO TRUST THEIR INNER BRILLIANCE AND LIVE IN ALIGNMENT WITH THAT THEY VALUE MOST IN THIS WORLD.
Why? So that you can create impactful change in your own life and the lives of others.
Because if there’s one thing I know to be true, it’s that we need YOU right now…
your unique voice,
your wise perspective,
your one of a kind combination of skills, talents and gifts.
We have a lot of work to do in this big ol’ world of ours to get her up to speed, and you living into your fullest expression is part of that work.
But you don’t have to uncover those answers alone - I’m here to support your great ass self through no-bs yet compassionate coaching + facilitation.
I was in the exact place you’re in right now asking myself the hard questions like ‘is this really what I’m meant to do with my life’, ‘what’s next’, and “what even lights me up anyway?!’
And I hate to burst your bubble - but the solutions to those big challenges you’re struggling with aren’t going to come from someone else - they’re going to come from within.
(My job is to help you listen to that part of you, and pull ‘em out of the dark.)
That’s why everything I do is informed by my signature approach that supports YOUR inner smarty pants….
THE PARTNERSHIP PROMISE
We’re in this together, co-creating and collaborating to actualize a path that is uniquely yours.
Yours - not mine! There are enough people in your life telling you what to do. I will always hold you as the expert of your own experience and embolden you to trust and act on this expertise.
3. POWERFUL QUESTIONS
Curious questioning without an agenda creates a big impact. By asking powerful questions + holding space for you to stretch your vision of what’s possible we will create greater clarity and courage to take...
4. INSPIRED ACTION
I will hold you accountable to your vision, by co-creating inspired actions not based on what you ‘should’ be doing but what lights you up and feels aligned. Habituating inspired action generates momentum and will give you greater...
I promise this result every. single. time. Because when we trust our inner brilliance, stretch our vision of what’s possible and make moves towards our dreams… We quiet our self-doubt and make way for greater fulfillment and deeper purpose.

I'M ALL ABOUT VALUES - SO IF WE SHARE ANY OF THESE, WE SHOULD PROBABLY WORK TOGETHER.
We’re deeply connected to each other, this planet and every living thing on it. We’re all one. Our liberation, health, and actualization is intimately interconnected.
Coaching + personal development is for EVERY-BODY. Step aside Tony Robbins et al. - we’re tired of your affluent white cis hetero approach that doesn’t honour or serve the lived experience of many.
I hold the information shared in our coaching sessions in strict confidence and deeply value the power of a brave container when anything and everything can be shared openly and honestly.
COURAGE + VULNERABILITY
I will always believe in and hold space for what’s possible for you. Even when you lose sight of it.
These go together like peanut butter + jelly. It’s a vulnerable experience to step outside your status quo and live a life aligned with your best self, and doing so is one of the most courageous things you can do.
Listening to understand - not to respond is a pillar of my beliefs. I will always seek to empathize with your experience and POV.
VALUES ARE COOL...
BUT TAKING ACTION ON THEM IS ZOE KRAVITZ LEVEL COOL...
P.S HERE’S A COUPLE MORE BELIEFS THAT I THINK WE SHOULD ALIGN WITH….
Success is measured by the ease and grace of your life.
Depression and anxiety are not things to be ‘dealt’ with but rather an asset that can be integrated and leveraged in your life. These assets can serve as a compass to point you in the direction of better alignment.
Personal development doesn’t happen in a vacuum. Not only are we fighting our own internal struggles, but also those inflicted by the societal status quo. White supremacy, colonialism, patriarchy, heteronormativity, and other oppressive systems bleed into every facet of our lives. (If you’re looking for a love+light style coach - sorry, I’m not her.)
Healing ourselves heals others.
I live by these words from Angela Davis - “You have to act as if it were possible to radically transform the world. And you have to do it all the time."
