WHO I AM
Throughout my career, I have coached performing artists, writers, musicians, painters, designers and non-profit workers from early career and through mid-career work and life transitions. As a creative artist working in performance art and creative writing, and with a family of creatives, I understand what drives art making and fuels creativity. I have the personal experience of my husband's alcohol addiction and subsequent death, and raising school-aged children as a solo parent which I credit for transforming my lifelong passion for personal growth into a spiritual path that continues to deepen every day.
I have a degree in psychology and a masters in performance studies from NYU with training in creative business planning, group facilitation, mindfulness practices and performance. I have written and performed my personal stories and helped others write theirs. I was co-founder of Rivertown Artists Workshop and over the past 20 years I’ve led workshops on personal story writing, performance, strategic planning and change management. I am a graduate of the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) and am completing my Creativity Coaching Association certification. I am a scholarship recipient of the 2021 Inner MBA Immersion & Certificate Program of Sounds True and New York University.
