A bit about Me

I have always been a multi-dimensional thinker, asking deep questions to reveal a greater, truthful whole. My evolution from journalist to life coach was as natural as a hike in the woods. 


Fast-forward 20 years and my ThriveWell Coaching practice has morphed into CaregiveHer to focus exclusively on improving the quality of female interpersonal relationships. I want to make it easier for women to communicate their needs, especially when confronted with life-changing circumstances. From the birth of a daughter to the death of a mother, women take on roles that require daily superpowers.


It’s time to redefine caregiving, how we take of each other and ourselves. Luckily, it’s what I’m all about. One day I’ll tell you my story.

CaregiveHer is a new blog that makes what to do

and say easier for people caring for women facing life-changing moments. CaregiveHer is currently in development. Please sign up and be the first to know when she is ready. Thank you.

COME AWAY WITH ME

I love the magic that is created when women come together with intention. Give yourself permission and I'll handle all the details. Hiking and hot springs in New Mexico? Meditation and monkeys in Costa Rica? Wildlife and wine in California? Yoga and you in the Berkshires? Let's explore how to best take care of ourselves so that we can better take care of others.

CREDENTIALS

SCHOOLING AND TRAINING

I graduated from Coach University in 1994 as an associate certified coach and later as a master retreat leader from the Retreat Coaches Network. I also earned recognition from the Life Blueprint Institute and the International Coaching Federation. 


In 1987, I earned a BA from The Johns Hopkins University in Writing Seminars, and later studied design and interaction at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, San Francisco State Multimedia Studies Program, Parsons and the School of Visual Arts.

WRITING

As an independent consultant, I have decades of cross-disciplinary experience working with individuals, agencies and start-ups to deliver creative insights and solutions. While living in Silicon Valley, I documented start-up successes and emerging markets for InterActivity Magazine, wrote and designed countless web pages for digital media studios, and for clients such as Apple, match.com, Netscape, Microsoft, Oracle and NetObjects.


I have held several print editorial roles at magazines including InterActivity, Specialty Foods Magazine, NJ Health & Beauty and Matters.


Currently I am working on the launch of First Date Stories as interactive copywriter and contributing editor and developing the CaregiveHer blog.

MOTHER OF REINVENTION

I am a native New Yorker who has moved around, skilled at adapting to new environments. My careers span the interactive arts, entrepreneurship, ideation, journalism, advertising, small business and life coaching, event planning, jewelry design, specialty foods, wellness and lifestyle. I have coordinated events from the massive NASFT Fancy Food Show to local wellness fairs to custom retreats.


I am an empty-nesting mother of two college-aged daughters, wife, dog owner, and entertainer who cooks without recipes, lover of seas, spas and adventure travel. 

HOW CAN WE WORK TOGETHER?

LET'S START HERE.

GO AHEAD. I'M LISTENING.

I'd love to help you. Coaching, writing, collaborating, planning your next retreat? Please let me know how I can be of service.
