My Story

In 1999, I left a successful career in public radio to follow my heart and “take the leap” in the direction of what promised greater fulfillment. My journey of personal recovery and growth eventually led me to the Kripalu Yoga Center, where I trained to become a yoga teacher and transformational workshop facilitator. In 2002, I landed in the Boston area and began teaching yoga and workshops on The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity – a powerful book and course that changed my life, and millions of lives around the world.

In 2013, I became certified in Positive Psychology coaching and opened my practice in Arlington, MA. Today, my work as a life and career coach is deeply gratifying as I help my clients take their own “leaps” and land in wonderful new places and circumstances. You can learn more about the process here.

I believe in – and practice – kindness, courage, lifelong learning, inclusiveness, authenticity, joyful service, and following our passions.  My own passions include singing, writing, travel, African drumming, spiritual studies, walking the Minuteman Bikeway, and visiting the beaches on Cape Cod, my childhood home.
