I hold a Certified Practitioner Coach (CPC) certification and an Energy Leadership Index – Master Practitioner (ELI MP) certification from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), a leading international coaching institute. Helping people reach their highest potential has always been a big part of my life. I spent 35 years in business operations, 29 of those years with the same Fortune 10 company. My experience in program development and management has given me in-depth insight into leading others success.
As a divorced, single mom of a teenage daughter, I have learned patience, self-reliance, perseverance, and resilience. Being privileged to be part a close-knit circle of strong, diverse friends has also been a constant source of inspiration, education, empowerment, and love.
I never expected one of the worst events in my life would turn out to be one of the most inspiring. About 13 years ago, I was struck with a muscular skeletal disorder that debilitated me to the point of atrophy. I began seeking holistic means to resolve my issue. In my search for information, I also renewed a spiritual path that had long ago been put aside for marriage. As I began sharing my health and spiritual discoveries with friends, I realized it was inspiring them in their own lives. Sharing my discoveries with a few friends soon became a group of 20+ men and women meeting monthly. LifeHouse was born.
My dearest friend since grammar school became my Life Coach during this time. She helped me maneuver through some difficult life challenges, and helped me realize my life-long passion to serve others and help them live fulfilled and successful lives. I, too, wanted to be a Life Coach.
I have lived in the Chicagoland area all my life. I currently live in Lemont with my daughter, parents, a cat and dog.
