About Michelle

I know the challenge of feeling disconnected at work.

I spent ten years in a corporate sales career working for a Fortune 500 company. The last four years, I wanted nothing more than to find my true calling. However, I had little direction and less clarity. I just knew that I no longer wanted to work in sales and I possessed a deep consciousness that I could be more in the world. But I felt inhibited by my working-class background, raised in a culture that did not equip me with the tools needed to envision something new, something more aligned with my soul.

I realized that I had to begin with unraveling my frustration and disappointment before I could even imagine a different path – one where I could actually have true, authentic choice in both my career and life. I spent those four years in profound exploration, evaluating what I wanted, determining my skills and gifts, and gaining a clear sense of who I am and what I have to offer.

I tried different avenues of exploration.

After much experimentation, my work paid off and I was brought back to life. I was energized by advocating for people and supporting their dreams. I realized coaching is what I was meant to do. Coaching begins where you are, starts with the present and is future focused. From where you are today, a coach can help you visualize where you want to be, and offer the tools and skills to gain clarity for what actions you need to take to get there.

My personal path was laid with compassion, clarity, choice, and action.

First, I gave myself compassion for where I was in my life. Through the support of those around me, including my coaches, came clarity about where I was headed and what I wanted. That clarity endowed me with the confidence to choose to make the necessary changes to follow my path and to begin taking actions to bring my goals and dreams to fruition.

I sought out training to help me develop my gifts and create a career I would thrive in. These actions included obtaining my Master’s in Organizational Psychology from Golden Gate University as well as becoming a certified coach through the Coaches Training Institute, which supports the fundamental belief that all humans are naturally creative, resourceful, and whole. I have also earned a graduate certificate in Conflict Resolution and I am certified in facilitation from the Matrix Leadership Institute, which focuses on developing and creating sustainable relationships and shared leadership in group settings.

Motherhood was my next big transition.

In 2009, I became a new Mom to a girl, and in 2012 I had my second child, a boy. Motherhood has transformed my life experience beyond words. It soon became clear to me that the tools I gained during my career transition would be the same tools I would come to depend on as I grew my family. These tools that I share in my coaching with you, are the tools to freedom, compassion, clarity, choice and self-inspired action.

I have come to appreciate and live my soul’s purpose.

I have had the privilege of coaching for a decade and I still love it. My passion lies in supporting women like YOU, as you transform your life and follow your calling/s. I want you to know you can make the changes you desire and you can create a relationship with work that fulfills you. I have no doubt, I see magic happen in people’s lives every day. It simply takes courage and you got that, I promise.

The simple truth: there always will be transitions through life, because life is ever changing, ever evolving. There is always an opportunity for more: more perspective, more options, more love, more connection, more challenge, more freedom.
