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.
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.
