Greetings! For over fifteen years, I have supported individuals and organizations through various forms of change and transformation. I have worked with numerous Fortune 500 companies to help them identify their future state and supported them through this shift as a system. Throughout this process, I’ve partnered with many leaders to as they re-define their vision and serve as impactful positive role models.
Additionally: I’m especially passionate about helping those who have felt dis-empowerment at some point in their lives to reclaim their power and who they are in the world. As an Asian-American woman, I have deep familiarity with the experiences of some disenfranchised populations in the United States. My doctoral research focused on how one transforms from a state of dis-empowerment relative to the social environment to a stance of power and ownership of self in the world. This integrated the fields of Transformative Learning and Somatics as a methodology to support positive change.
Specialties: Organizational Change and Transformation, Organizational Consulting, Leadership Development, Adult Learning, Human Development, liberatory practices.

Do you feel deep in your beautiful soul that your work is
– unfulfilling, and lacking meaning and purpose
– draining your energy and squeezing the life (and soul) out of you, while
– affecting your confidence and positive outlook on life?
And do you find yourself in the wonderfully liberating stage of thinking about your next career move, but are unsure of what to do next and how to move beyond your fear to action?
Do you need a little inspiration and guidance?
Do you want to take that first step toward your soul’s purpose, but need some inspiration and the guidance of someone who’s been where you are and who’s soul is thriving?
As a coach, I guide and support professional women in their 40s and 50s, who are at a crossroads in their career, to find their soul’s path in their work, so they can feel whole, truly be their authentic self and live with renewed confidence, passion and energy.
It may help you to know how I got here. Corporate Vice President, Strategic Consultant, non-profit Director of Operations, small business founder and chocolatier, and now coach. I have made many BIG work transitions in my career looking for my soul’s purpose and I am my own best client.
I know how hard it is to take that first step to leave a job, stride confidently into a new career, or design and create a business of your own. I’ve been there. It can be daunting, scary and even paralyzing, but it doesn’t have to be.
If you’d like a companion and guide on your journey of discovery, design and realization of a soul-fulfilling career, one that has purpose and passion, and is authentic to who you are and who you are becoming, I am that coach.

As a Whole Person Certified Coach, I support and guide individuals through critical moments in their lives to create positive shifts. Individuals work with me either personally or through their organizations and employers, and I use my degree, skills and experience to help them.
I am also an MBA with over 10 years of corporate experience in marketing, strategy, corporate social responsibility, public relations and communication, so I bring all those experiences and life skills to my work as a coach. I have lived in at least 5 countries around the world so I have a rich multicultural background and have experienced change and transitions multiple times in my life. I am conscious of the challenges these situations bring and am excited to support people through them.
As human beings, there are many critical decisions we make, and goals and outcomes we work towards. Life coaching can be extremely helpful and supportive for people who have goals to achieve and dreams to fulfill. It is also a process that catalyzes change and transitions, and helps in problem solving. I work with individual clients in a holistic manner to solve problems and create positive shifts.
Some areas on which I focus:
• Geographic transitions and relocation
• Managing work relationships and stakeholders
• Career management and counseling
• Individuals who want to return to work after an extended break
• Personal development – Individuals who struggle with underlying thoughts and beliefs that keep them stuck and unable to move forward in a particular area of their life
• Work / Life balance
