When I was in the fitness business, my work hardly ever felt like a ‘job’. Besides having a great time running my bootcamps or motivating a client around an injury, I found the ultimate reward was when my clients thanked me for being a contribution, not only to their physical health, but to their overall vitality and enriched well-being.
For me, having truly happy clients are the best moments in my work.
Making the Most of Any Change or Challenge
But the tides of transition came upon me with the birth of my second daughter, 16 years after my first! And at the same time welcoming my special needs step-daughter into our permanently, for me and my family it meant it was time for a change.
I am not new to challenges, in fact I thrive on them! I believe challenges are what keeps me creative, on my feet and inspired. I actually started my career in the corporate world, with some powerhouse companies, like HP and MCI, this enabled me to refine the art of skillful negotiations, all the while balancing the hectic pace of corporate sales with being a working mother. I knew though I had to be involved with more meaningful and personal work.

My family dynamics changed almost instantly; the change triggered me to come full circle with my career and life path.
