Motivated by a deep desire to see others thrive, I enjoy supporting people in unlocking their potential and realizing their dreams. Originally from the east coast of the USA, I studied mechanical engineering before joining a multinational corporation, where I worked in some amazing locations for more than 20 years. Along the way, I always had a strong interest in personal growth and team development, including my own relentless desire to keep growing and learning. It was my own personal development journey that led me to pursue a career as a professional coach. I started my own business in Geneva, Switzerland in 2017 and enjoy working with both individuals and companies. For me, coaching isn’t just a profession, it’s my passion to help people realize their potential, take steps with confidence and move forward to live their best life.
Since childhood, I have been lucky to enjoy many activities in the outdoors, including hiking, camping and kayaking, seeing many of the world’s beautiful places along the way. Beyond sports, I also feel joy, wonder and deep gratitude when I am simply in nature, walking or reflecting. Living in line with my own desire to keep growing, I did my first glacier trek after moving to Switzerland in 2015 and I couldn’t get enough of this awe inspiring alpine environment. My spirit soars when I am a bit covered in dirt or snow and love sharing those experiences with friends and family.
I volunteered with Girls on Ice Switzerland because of the tremendous value I see the program bringing to young women and to be an advocate for girls in science, engineering and wilderness. My motivation in founding Women on Ice is to create an experience that enables women to deepen their self awareness, connect with other women and step in to new possibilities, while experiencing the transformative power of nature.
