My Story

A life design coach and small business consultant focused on self-care, self-motivation, self-image and simple living.

This is a destination for fellow thinkers, creators, and entrepreneurs where you'll find insights and resources on "life design" — the process of creating a life you love by doing your best work and becoming your best self. 

Designers. Developers. Diplomats. Doctors ... whoever you are and whatever you do, your knowledge and drive is the lifeblood of our global society. 

I want to help you identify and alleviate self-limiting thoughts, behaviors, and activities that prevent you from influencing the world with your ideas. 

By combining principles of beauty, simplicity, and creativity, I develop content that self-motivates and empowers with resources to help you self-care, brand yourself, launch a small business, live like a minimalist, or accomplish whatever your vision of professional or personal growth may be.

My goal is to help you evaluate, elevate, and express yourself (and your work) through my complimentary and premium resources. 

No matter if you are struggling with how to create a capsule wardrobe, ways to simplify your life, or tactics to brand your small business — my actionable resources will yield powerful personal and professional results. 

About Me

I launched my career in finance then transitioned to fashion and lifestyle marketing before envisioning a fulfilling career (what I'm doing now) that would allow me the freedom and flexibility to do more meaningful work. 

To help sort out my personal and professional vision, I attended the Stanford Graduate School of Business. There I immersed myself in a customized curriculum that served as the foundation of what I'm doing now.

I took multidisciplinary courses such as Interpersonal Dynamics,  Design Thinking, Creative Writing, Power and Influence, Self and Leadership Coaching, Formation of New Ventures, Strategic Communication, Moral and Spiritual Inquiry through Literature, and Lives of Consequence (my favorite), that pulled from psychology, sociology, philosophy, strategy, and more.

These diverse fields of study — in addition to my own personal dedication to crafting a soul-searching strategy — ultimately inspired me to pursue a purpose centered around helping others pursue theirs. 

You can learn more about me, my background, and my journey, here and here as well as on my homepage
