Helping others and making a difference has been an important part of my life from a very young age. I come from a long line of helping and business professionals, and I feel thankful that I can incorporate these values in my work. I am also fortunate to have a diverse professional background, and I believe I found my true calling at the right time.

Steve Jobs, founder of Apple, talked about connecting the dots during his 2005 Stanford Commencement speech, “You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”

I connected the dots in my personal life and it led me to coaching. Coaching fits my core values, strengths, skills, personality and interests.

I connected my experience: exposure to a diversity of leadership and a chance to experiment with my own authentic leadership style led me to leadership coaching. A vast array of industry and functional experience led me to career coaching.

I connected my education: MBA from Wharton Business School, MS in Counseling from Johns Hopkins, Leadership Coaching certification from Georgetown University, a 12 week University of Pennsylvania program in Positive Psychology, and several professional certifications.

I connect the dots to you. Helping you helps me fulfill my leadership dreams and my desire to make a difference one person at a time.

What’s your story of connecting the dots?
