Hello! A little about me.

Currently based in Menlo Park, California I’m a writer and women’s personal growth coach with big plans. Obsessed with: charcuterie boards, all things Italian, and podcasts. That’s who I am, living my life exactly how I please.

But it wasn’t always the case. 

I used to spend way too much time in my life denying who I was and how I wanted to live. I played small according to what was “normal” and how I thought others wanted me to live my life. I was unhappy and completely out of touch with who I was. 

Over 10 years ago, my husband died in a scuba diving accident, catapulting me head first into widowhood at 29. Within weeks after his death, my grief was rudely interrupted by news that he was a cheater.

A huge wake-up.

Since then I’ve been expanding and being unapologetically me. I don’t recognize the girl who married in her 20’s. Hell, I don’t recognize myself from 6 months ago. I no longer play small or settle. I don’t care what I’m supposed to do and when asked “why,” rather than offering an explanation, I ask “why not.”

By traditional standards I live an unconventional life, it’s what works for me. I live half time in Italy and the other half in the States. I work remotely. Travel is my jam and I find the newest and best versions of myself in its midst. Especially when I’m doing it solo. 

I work with women who want to make big leaps in life. Some of them have experienced an event similar to mine, others have simply woke up on their own — regardless of why, they all want MORE. Whatever that looks like, I’m here to help make it happen. Not to convince them but to be right by their side while do it. Full out. 

Now that I’m here, I can’t imagine living any other way. 

I call it Making Gold. Alchemizing your life from where you are right now, to where you want to be. It takes courage and grit. But I promise you, it’s so worth it.
