My passion is coaching working parents to redesign work, rebalance wellbeing, and prioritize financial flexibility so they enjoy impactful careers and raise happy and healthy families as their legacy to a better world.

Outdated workplace and parenting norms trigger stress and burnout from unrelenting job demands and family responsibilities

I know you’re the kind of person who wants to succeed at work + home – on your terms – without sacrificing wellbeing.

Outdated workplace and parenting norms trigger stress and burnout from unrelenting job demands and family responsibilities

I know you’re the kind of person who wants to succeed at work + home – on your terms – without sacrificing wellbeing.

You’re a high achiever who doesn’t make excuses. But you’re stretched too thin.

Tired of being tired and feeling powerless, wondering when things will get better. You want to:

  • Limit the destruction of unhealthy stress on your mind, body, and spirit.

  • Create a work-life mix that helps you take better care of yourself and your family while advancing your career.

  • Stop living with doubt and guilt that you are falling short for those you care about most.

  • Make your highest contribution to a better world.

I worked for Johns Hopkins University for 20+ years on school, family, and community partnerships, teacher professional development, and work, life, and community engagement.

In 2017, I became a national board certified health and wellness coach after receiving my training through the Mayo Clinic. I have a Master of Education in adult learning from Johns Hopkins University and a Master of Social Work from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill.
