WHO I AM:

I’m a sun-lovin’ L.A. native who wants people in the world to be happier! (And I started with myself).

My professional background includes putting my Yale masters degree to hard work building a career in theater stage management and project management. My personal background includes a decade+ of constantly feeling “not there yet.”

If you’re familiar with this little gremlin of a belief, you know it’s simply crushing. Walking around your life convinced that you’re not good enough as is makes every accomplishment (personal, professional, internal, external) fall short of celebrate-able, and every shortcoming (real or perceived) 10x more criticize-able.

When I decided I needed to leave the career I had zero joy left in, I was unclear & ungrounded. I didn’t know what I wanted other than to be happy with myself and my life. And I didn’t know how to achieve that without becoming an entirely different person. (Ouch.)

This was my moment to decide I was brave enough* to change things (*not true, so scared, did it anyway). I stopped trying to work my way to “good enough” and started getting to know myself. It got uncomfortable at times, but it also felt ah-may-zing to claim more and more of who I really was.

Now, I know who I am (an imperfect, goofy, hard-working badass), I feel present and happy in my skin & in my life, and I know how to go after goals that matter to me. And my joy today comes from helping others who want to really know, challenge and celebrate themselves too!

WHY I DO WHAT I DO:

Your happiness is the key to more than you may think. Self-acceptance, resilience, stability, success, fulfillment, prosperity, longevity, health: It’s easy to want to work on these things, thinking it’ll lead to feeling Deep Down Happy. And it’s easy to hold back that Happy until you’ve “checked enough boxes.” I used to do it, and I’m so grateful to know there’s a better way! My mission is to help people to go boldly after what they want, but not wait for conditions to be perfect before they allow themselves to feel happy.

I believe:

  • Happiness is your birthright.

  • It’s possible to course-correct after decades of doubt, cynicism and fear…aka after years of being a human person.

  • You don’t have to be perfect to be happy.

  • You don’t have to live up to that ideal, “pedestal” version of you before you unleash complete, unconditional, bonkers love for yourself.

  • You’re not broken, and you don’t need fixing. You’ve got bad habits, and you can change them.

  • We are not meant to thrive alone.

  • Good things are worth going after.
