I am a life and career coach based in Oslo, Norway. Over the last five years I have had the opportunity to spend thousands of hours coaching a wide variety of clients. And I have truly enjoyed each and every engagement!

Originally from the United States, I pursued a love of music from an early age. My passion allowed me to travel the world, live abroad, earn a doctorate, and gain ten years of invaluable leadership experience as an Executive Director. I could have easily ridden a wave of success until I retired.


However, life threw a curveball. A teenager asked for my help and my life was forever changed. I realized a life of helping others was my true calling.

Initially thinking I wanted to become a therapist, I completed a graduate degree and became a Licensed Master Social Worker.​

As I searched for ways to contribute and be of service, I tried on various roles for size as a school counselor and in nonprofits.

But I just couldn't seem to find the right fit.


Luckily, fate introduced me to an executive coach who became my mentor. I entered a program to become a Certified Executive Coach through the Center for Executive Coaching. I also became a Professional Certified Coach through the International Coaching Federation.

As a result of helping clients ask and answer big questions about life, I developed the Inner Leadership framework. I have shared this concept with leaders at organizations in the U.S., Europe, and India. I have also published the Inner Leadership Business Series through Bookboon, the world's most used corporate learning solution.

I genuinely care for the people I serve. I would be honored to discuss whether I am a fit for your needs as you develop the life and career you desire.
