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
