You’re not sure you are where you want to be in your career and/or your life in general. You seem to be raging against the machine that is your current life’s position. You’re not sure what next step is out there for you. You know that doing what you’re continuing to do is not the way, but you’re unsure of what the next step is, or how to get there. You feel that you don’t have an ally or Sherpa to advocate for you or guide you up that mountain. It’s getting tiring fighting between the different parts of you, wondering what you should do next. Stress is grinding you down. Sound familiar?
This, my good friends, is where I come in.
I help wonderful people like you navigate from where you are now to where you want to be. I help you figure out what it is that truly is calling you and how you can start to honour that pull. Making big decisions isn’t always easy, especially when thinking about how it can affect not only you, but those around you like your family. But in me you have an ally, an advocate and an accountability guide to help you see you through it all.
I spent over 25 years in the hospitality industry as a chef, leader and culinary college professor. I spent many years manning the stoves to hone my craft, but my most successful and satisfying years were when I was leading teams. I performed at senior and executive levels in corporate environments to not only produce on time and on budget, but to guide and direct staff and management alike. I have worked at world class hotels and attractions, fine dining establishments and other avenues related to hospitality.
But my greatest joy came in teaching and mentoring. Connecting with people one-on-one or in small groups is where I felt my strength and happiness lie. Tapping into other people’s greatness, to harness their power, to show them the way to new levels is what I enjoyed most. And that is what I get to do whenever I talk to clients like you who are looking to up their game, to find and connect with what drives them and to feel purposeful and passionate..
Life wasn’t always so rosy. Part of my story is that I was an active alcoholic for many years. I functioned at high levels, but battled the bottle until rock bottom compelled me to put it down for good. I have been in recovery for some time now, and the inner work that required me to relieve myself of that demon is what has created the greatest shifts in my life. Not only was I able regain footing in my life, but I was able to rocket upwards to my potential. And in doing so, I knew that to keep it I had to give it away. I have since counseled and worked with dozens of men and women in all stages of recovery. Through my blog, podcast and book, I have reached countless others to carry the message of hope. This helped me lay the foundation of coaching, and to open the space of compassion, empathy and listening.
I have studied at the accredited and well-recognized Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching. I started my journey in early 2018 and have been able to work with many fantastic clients over that time, tackling inner and outer blocks which at once prevented them from growing in their careers and personal lives. I am a Certified Professional Coach and Energy Leadership Index -Master Practitioner. Read what others have said about my coaching.
