Hello! A little about me.

Currently based in the Bay Area, 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 with intention.

But it wasn’t always the case. 

I used to spend way too much time in my life denying how I felt on the inside. 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 who I am. It’s often messy and I don’t recognize the girl who married in her 20’s. Hell, I don’t recognize myself from 6 months ago. I don’t care what I’m supposed to do and when asked “why,” rather than offering an explanation, I ask “why not.”

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.
