Hello! Thank you for your interest in Women on Ice and in reading more about me. I am driven by my desire to inspire and develop women. As a professional coach, I have the great joy of supporting women in pursuing their dreams and living their best lives. Although I’ve worn different hats in my career, there have been consistent themes throughout my life including women’s empowerment, outdoor experiences as a source of inspiration and always working to develop myself.
Before devoting my work full time to coaching, I worked at a multinational corporation. Two of the most rewarding parts of my work were coaching teams and mentoring women. My volunteer endeavors, such as teaching in Tanzania, also centered around empowering women. Along the way I’ve been inspired by many strong female role models and mentors, and I remain a steadfast advocate for mentoring. Today I manage a professional women’s mentorship program as a board member of the Geneva-Lausanne Professional Women’s Network.
Beyond work, you’ll find me in nature or traveling. The outdoors is my go-to source for reflection, inspiration and restoration and it’s also been a great teacher, helping me face my fears and step into my potential. I enjoy many activities but if I had to choose, kayaking and hiking are favorites. I love to share these experiences with my community.
I volunteered with Girls on Ice Switzerland because of the life changing value the program brings to young women. My motivation in founding Women on Ice is to create an experience for women to reflect, connect, discover their magic and grow!
I am an accredited coach with the International Coach Federation (ICF ACC). My educational background includes professional coaching diploma from the Institute de Coaching and a degree in mechanical engineering from North Carolina State University. Originally from the east coast of the USA, I now live in Geneva with my husband, Ken, where we can be found walking, cooking or planning our next adventure.
