Dynamo + Empath = Me

Somebody recently asked me, “What’s your superpower?”

My superpower is how deeply and powerfully I believe.

I believe in people, individually and collectively.

I believe in fairness.

I believe in the interconnectedness of all living beings.

I believe in the power of words and language.

I believe in everyone’s right to pursue happiness.

I believe in inner, personal power—as opposed to force, which is not at all powerful.

The strength of my belief led me to my calling, which I finally discovered at the age of 42.

I'm a proud single mom of two, a world traveler, and a scuba diver. I've called Boston home since 2002. I was put on this planet to be a coach—to help people discover and inhabit their awesomest selves. In my work, I summon every juicy drop of my background and credentials:

  • Bachelor’s degree in cultural anthropology from Princeton University

  • Master’s degree in education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education

  • Training in professional coaching at the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC)

  • Studies of power and power dynamics

  • Travel to 60 countries

  • 18 years as a book editor and writer

  • Rigorous personal fitness and nutrition practice
