As a passionate traveler, I believe by seeing the world we naturally embark on a journey of self-discovery. In my own life, yoga, meditation and personal development continue to deepen my self-awareness as well. I have discovered that as we understand ourselves and our world better, we become empowered to live extraordinary lives, wherever our journeys take us.
With over 20 years of experience living in 5 countries and travelling to over 40, I am uniquely familiar with the personal, professional and spiritual issues my global clients face, as well as the personal transformation and spiritual growth that you may be familiar with when you challenge yourself and expand your horizons.
I grew up in the U.S. and have lived in Denmark, Poland, Portugal and currently Germany. For more than 20 years, I have gained first hand experience of the struggles and challenges to
- integrate into a new country
- navigate cross-cultural differences
- make new friends with every move
- raise multi-cultural children
- develop professionally and pursue work opportunities I can do from anywhere
- start a coaching business in a foreign country
- deal with intercultural relationship issues
- live with the uncertainty of the expat lifestyle
- find a reliable personal support structure, including coaches and mentors
Working through these challenges over the years has been a very rewarding journey of its own, filled with rich learning and a plethora of skills that I happily share with my global clients.
My own personal and spiritual journey has expanded over the years to also include yoga, meditation, conscious eating and purposeful living, which are reflected in the holistic mind-body-soul approach I take in coaching my clients.
I originally founded my coaching practice, previously called Global Citizen Coaching, in 2004 as a way to offer personal support, guidance and coaching to readers of my first book (The Global Citizen: A Guide to Creating an International Life and Career).
Since then, I have worked with clients worldwide and provide a unique level of understanding, guidance, support and encouragement, especially to global women. Clients come to me because I relate well with what they are experiencing and intuitively ‘get’ who they are, where they are with their lives and what they really want deep down.
I am fortunate to love what I do and be able to pass those gifts on to others.
I hold the following professional certifications:
Certified and ICF accredited Life Coach through Coach U
Certified Personal Branding DNA™ Architect
Certified NLP Communicator and Motivational Coach
