I am a mother. An entrepreneur. A writer. A speaker.
A leader. A confidant and a coach.
I inspire, hold space, and tell the truth gently and lovingly, because I know it will set you free. I lift the lid off your soul so you can bring forth your gifts to the world and live the life of joy and freedom you are meant to live.
My purpose is to help you find your purpose.
I'm the proud mom of Savina, a senior at OLP, and Luc, a graduate of St. Augustine High School.
In addition to teaching, I manage my family's home medical supply business, San Diego Homecare Supplies. Before moving back to San Diego in 2004, I was a management consultant in McKinsey & Company’s London office, worked in Washington, DC as a specialist in international trade and Latin American economic integration, and earned an MBA in Finance from the Wharton School of Business and an MA in International Studies and Portuguese from the Lauder Institute at the University of Pennsylvania.
I've loved and lost, prospered and failed. I've learned to choose gratitude, especially during the toughest times, and to see each setback as an opportunity to learn and grow. Thanks to the CIJ program from Stanford University that I now teach, I've also learned how to get past fear and procrastination. (Basically, how to get out of my own way!) And now I get to live my purpose of being a teacher and a coach.
When you're living your purpose and wake up every morning with joy and excitement for the day ahead, every part of your life transforms for the better, like alchemy.
It’s not rocket science, but it does take specific tools, discipline, accountability, and action. Not every day will be peachy. That's why we call it a “practice.” And practice makes perfect.
If I can do it, so can you! Come with me. Let me show you how…
