I am a Productivity Coach helping busy professionals have the work/life balance that makes sense for them so they can focus on having their dream careers and be more productive.
For over ten years, I have worked in a leadership position in the IT consulting space. My recent experience has been in Azure and Salesforce infrastructure projects. Before that, I worked as a Business Analyst and Technical Writer.
In December 2020, I got my MBA in Information Security. I am proud of this achievement. This was during a pandemic, with a demanding job as a Program Manager and raising my grandbaby.
My family and friends have always been shocked how I could achieve my career goals while being a single mother of two children who are now young adults. When my daughter became a pre-teen, she was diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD). We were in different mental health treatments for over six years, including in-patient treatment, trauma-focused therapy, family therapy, etc. She became a chronic runaway, so we dealt with the CHINS program. Having a child with ODD was hard, especially when nothing seems to work. I knew that I need to remain strong for my other child and her.
In 2019, I had a huge surprise when my daughter told me that she was pregnant. A roller coaster of emotions happened, but I knew that I had to be supportive in the end. Eventually, she decided that she couldn’t be a parent at the moment, so I decided to raise my grandson. I am glad that she is now going to community college and is working part-time. I learned patience and resilience.
Throughout all of this, I had coworkers, family, friends, and people who reached out asking me for career advice and how I could continue succeeding with these trials and tribulations. I have always been someone who loves to help others, so I tried offering my advice.
I have my coaching certification as a Life Coach. Even though you do not need to have a certification to be a coach, I wanted to go through an ICF-accredited coaching program to be a better coach to you. I want to make sure I do everything I can to help you reach your goals.
Please reach out to say hi, and I hope to share what I have learned and experienced.
