Service-- that’s what my life is all about. My guiding principles are love, respect, and service to others. For over a decade, I have worked with various populations-- from individuals who are homeless, mentally ill, and battling drug addiction to individuals on the Autism Spectrum and with developmental challenges, individuals with Alzheimer's and dementia, and individuals on hospice. Through this work, I learned various communication techniques for their best support. The focus is on the person and meeting them where they are.
I have obtained my ACC credential. Currently, I am training for Team & Group Coaching with Ignite Global, an ICF-affiliated institution. I am a Certified Coach and Women Circle Leader by Inner Glow Circle, an ICF-affiliated institution. I studied mindfulness and meditation for over a decade, and have been an avid practitioner for over 5 years. Currently, I facilitate a workshop for The Mighty (a mental health resource) called 'It's OK Not to be OK.'
