Finding the Quiet of your Center
I believe everyone has a compelling personal story. During 30 years practicing dental hygiene, caring for thousands of vulnerable patients and hearing their stories brought me face to face with both my story and my own vulnerability. I ultimately realized my role in helping people meant going far beyond dentistry.
Most of the people I had encountered didn’t know what they really wanted, and so had no way to aspire to what would fulfill them most deeply.
As a coach and advisor with multiple programs, I support people in identifying what it is they really want in their life and then making it happen. My coaching programs include: A Day Of Quiet: ME & YOU. A program in self discovery and clarity, 1:1 Coaching, and Your Interview Portrait - connect to yourself and the world through your personal story.
