I am an expert at guiding people through transformational moments in life, business and overall wellness, including the colorful and grey intersections of each along the way. My passion is in coaching–in helping people unlock their potential and break through cycles of stress, overload, and inaction.
I deliver on my passion by provided custom-tailored coaching experiences, speaking at corporate events and conferences and showing up for my clients in a way that helps them change their lives.
I also have a love for writing and am the author of 5 coaching books: Flow State Runner, Hill Running: Survive & Thrive, Run Faster: Unlock Your Speed in 8 Weeks, UltraRunning: A Coach’s Guide, and Running Heavy. My current writing projects include re-imagined children’s fairy tales and a thriller novel.
I’ve been described as having infectious enthusiasm, relentless positive energy, and always a smile to share. Truth is, I’m just thrilled to be alive and to have the chance to pursue my passions on a daily basis. I love helping people improve their lives and offering them tools and insights for thriving in adversity. The more opportunities I have to make new connections and help people awaken and strengthen their Inner Coach’s voice, the happier and more fulfilled I am.
Why work with me?
Would you like to be a paid speaker?
Coaches, adventurers and other professionals: have you ever wondered if you have what it takes to work as a paid inspirational speaker? If so, let’s not only find out, but work together to launch your business!
I am enjoying a fulfilling career supporting corporate events and conferences, a business I built from the ground-up as an adventurer, former corporate manager, and later a professional coach. It’s an area of my work that brings new energy and connections, as well as income. And now, I want to share what I’ve learned by mentoring a new wave of paid speakers.
My aim is to share insights from over 20 years of experience, to help open doors, build confidence, instill industry know-how and develop the savvy required to launch and succeed in this space.
In 2023, I’m launching my flagship course, Mastering the Business of Professional Speaking. This includes lessons on connecting with an audience, creating winning content, and bridging speeches into team-building activities. We’ll cover it all, from intake calls to proposals and negotiations, contracting, event performance and more. My roadmap for 2023 includes group coaching and 1:1 bespoke mentoring.
