I feel passionate about helping people reach a turning point and move towards greater freedom and joy. Having experienced the power of coaching myself, both professionally and personally, I know it works!
I graduated from the United States Air Force Academy and served almost 9 years as an officer before transitioning into my current position as a defense contractor. With over 30 combined years, I have extensively studied organizational dynamics. I practice leadership, communication, and process improvement skills on a daily basis. Having successfully navigated through workplace challenges along the way, I feel more empowered today than ever before.
I am intimately familiar with 12-step and other recovery programs actively working my own issues as well as partnering with individuals dealing with grief, chronic illness, addictions, co-addictions, career progression, aging, mental health challenges, divorce, single parenting, "coupleship", and family of origin issues. Throughout I’ve learned the richness of “peeling the layers of the onion”.
I am grateful to live with my husband and cat on the central California coast in Orcutt where I can ride motorcycles, surf, hike, and jog year around. It has been an amazing place to raise my children and get involved in the community.
Along with my Turning Point Coaching clients, I am also a contractor providing coaching to individuals and families receiving services at the Family Counseling and Trauma Healing Center in Solvang, CA. This work is extremely fulfilling! Trauma Healing Center
