Throughout my professional life, I have always been committed to supporting others, especially during the most difficult of times. In 2013, my sister passed away suddenly. This was a profound loss and to say I was in shock was an understatement. Throughout this period, I found myself questioning how I wanted to spend the time I had left on this planet, and how to use my time and energy to live a fulfilling life and help others do the same.
As therapy and support groups were only mildly helpful for me, I was desperately seeking a more proactive approach to come to terms with what had happened. Soon after, I discovered and began working with a Grief Coach. With my coach, I was able to work through all that felt unresolved, including the guilt, regret, and sadness that would have otherwise plagued me for the rest of my life. In transforming my own grief, I was inspired to help other people going through loss. I trained at the Grief Recovery Institute to become a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist.
I am a proud graduate of Accomplishment Coaching, The World’s Finest Coach Training Program, where I mastered my skills as a Life and Business Coach. Now, I work with clients all over the world, providing Business, Grief, and Life coaching. I also lead Grief Recovery Coaching groups and Sensitivity Training Workshops for Grief in the Workplace. With a Master of Science in Communication, I offer interpersonal relationship skills, and mindful communication techniques.
In addition to my coaching work, I am actively involved in networking groups, serving as the Astoria Chapter President of the Soloist Collective and the Philanthropic Coordinator of BNI Chapter 53. I enjoy going to concerts, hiking with my dog, and practicing yoga and mediation. Thus far, I have traveled to multiple countries as well as 49 of the 50 States. My goal is to continue to travel the world while educating and inspiring people to transform their own grief.
