Currently based in Abruzzo, Italy 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 more from their lives. 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 in their lives. Whatever that looks like, I help them achieve it — travel, starting their own business, big creative projects, making changes in their personal lives, you name it.
Now that I’m here, I can’t imagine living any other way.
