Beyond The Bio

(EVEN) MORE about me

Hi, friend! Thanks for wanting to get to know me beyond my bio.

Here’s more about my life, how I got here, and what lights me up inside.

I live in the Seattle, Washington area with my husband, Mike and our two kids, Hank and Lila.

I’m originally from Washington, DC, but my parents worked in the US Foreign Service so I grew up all over the world in Africa, South America and Australia.

My husband and I lived the Sleepless in Seattle life for a few years in our early 20s.

Lake Union, Seattle

My husband and I lived the Sleepless in Seattle life for a few years in our early 20s.

We lived on floating homes on the Seattle waterfront and spent our days kayaking around Lake Union.

I went to boarding school in Connecticut and college in Maine along the road to my home in the Pacific Northwest.

I spent two decades working in digital marketing, e-commerce, product marketing and consulting at big corporations and at small start-ups.

In the corporate world I went through my share of big promotions, new management, acquisitions, surprise reorganizations and structured layoffs (in no particular order).

Perhaps because of this—my favorite movie about life in a cubicle is Office Space.

When coaching I get to work from home with my adorable office assistants: Bodhi and Blue.

 My home is my happy place—I love to garden, watch horses in the field next door and see hot air balloons land behind our house.

I was a self-proclaimed ‘Red Wine Girl’ until I wasn’t. After 20 years of arranging wine-tasting weekends, post-work happy hours and mommy playdates with adult beverages…

I decided it was time to quit drinking.

But First, Coffee

I love travel and photography. My favorite destinations are Croatia, Venice, Tuscany, Paris, Australia, Mexico and Hawaii. The list continues to grow…
