I am a Certified Professional Coach

Trained by the Academy for Coach Training in Bellevue, WA, now Invite Change Coaching in Edmonds, WA, an International Coach Federation-Accredited Coach Training Provider. I hold a BA in economics and an MA in psychology. For nine years, I worked as a licensed mental health therapist in a clinical setting where clients and peers respected me for my dedication and integrity.

In the last twelve years, I have successfully partnered with small business entrepreneurs, with athletes, and with agents of change engaged in giving back to their communities.

I maintain my optimism, can-do attitude, and adventurous spirit by setting and attaining a variety of goals, which include:

  • Graduating insigni cum laude from University of Fribourg, Switzerland while overcoming dyslexia
  • Summiting Mount Rainier to raise money for the American Lung Association 
  • Attaining (dual) United States citizenship after overcoming many immigration hurdles - cherishing the right to vote
  • Refereeing semi-professional soccer games; instructing and coaching fellow referees
  • Successfully working with over 280 amazing and inspiring clients to transform their lives and increase positive impact in their communities
  • Supporting the founders of two non-profit organizations in Washington State

Helping You Reach Your Potential

By partnering with people who want to fully express themselves in all areas of life, I envision a world of people who stretch for optimal self-expression and positive impact for all. I understand my role in the coaching partnership as that of pathfinder, encourager, and sounding board and I am a strong believer in the innate capacity and capability of every person I support.

Through Affirmation in Action, I can focus on affirming you and helping you put your life into action.
