Larchmont, NY


Tell us about yourself:
I’m a business coach and life-balance expert. My favorite part of coaching is helping clients get what they really want rather than just settle for what’s realistic.  I have been coaching for six years and earned my CPCC through Coaches Training Institute.  My 20 plus years of corporate experience in a range of industries (Fortune 500 beverage company; advertising agency account management; magazine publishing) has provided me with the insight to guide my clients on their own distinct career paths.  In addition to leading Personal Renewal Groups, I coach individuals, teach a course on “Planning Your Next Life Chapter,” and bring entrepreneurs and professionals together for a What’s Next Club™ luncheon series.

My husband of 20 years is Richard, who moved to New York from South Africa 25 years ago.  We have two children: Robert is a high school sophomore and Alyssa is in 7th grade.

Why did you become a Personal Renewal Group (PRG)Facilitator?
I really resonated with Renee’s work and how she articulates the life-balance message and self-care work. Additionally, the PRG work is a complement to my What’s Next Club™ groups that are less structured.  I’m thrilled to have such well written and thoughtful course curriculum to work with!

How has the PRG work changed or affected you?
I feel more confident as I take on new speaking engagements knowing I have the support of Renee Trudeau & Associates, her book—The Mother’s Guide to Self-Renewal and her excellent outreach organization. Writing the letter from my Wise Self at the Kripalu Retreat last spring provided a shift in perspective for me. I have used the theme “A Date with Your Wise Self” for the last two PRG samplers I have had.

What are your favorite self-care activities?
Walking with our dog George on the beach, reading, being with with friends & family, playing tennis and exercising
