After interviewing 118 women across the U.S., I was astounded at how many women were struggling in middle age with their finances, hence, I decided to train as a certified money coach to understand and help them. I'm so pleased with the amount of women I've been privileged to assist.
My life's work spans coaching, consulting, writing, presentations and workshop facilitation. I help clients identify their unique talent to fulfill their life's purpose, addressing financial impediments. My approach incorporates multiple intelligences; EQ, spiritual intelligence, whole-person leadership, neuroscience and the integration of career and family.
I'm the co-author of The Orange Line: A Woman's Guide to Integrating Career, Family & Life a book based on 118 interviews of college educated women across the USA. This pioneering study outlines the limitations of the 'feminine filter' and the skills, behavior and agency women require to enjoy a fulfilling career and personal life. It was during this project I learned of the financial difficulties and conflicted beliefs' many women have concerning money and finance. This prompted my curiosity to qualify as a certified money behavior coach.
"One of my goal is to raise the collective consciousness about 'financial filters' and the 'feminine filter' that limits personal growth and balanced
whole-person leadership. I find helping others to find meaning and contribute their unique and best self a fabulously rewarding life endeavor."
"There is enough, I am enough."
