While the coaching that I will do with you does not involve me telling you how to live (because I believe that your essential self already knows this!), I do understand that you’d like to know my training, my experience and what kind of person I am. This page is therefore a bit about me and my life so you can get a sense of if we might be a good fit.
To begin, I’ve been a daughter, sister, friend, lover, aunt, and mother. I’ve been a volunteer as well as worked part-time, full-time, contract work, temporary work, full-time work in corporations, non-profits, education, government as well as running several of my own solopreneur businesses.
