For the story lovers, here is some background about how I decided to become a coach.

From my experience of being a mother of a child with a rare kidney disorder I learned a lot about myself.  There was so much work involved in managing the illness that a lot of other things in my life got neglected: my relationship with my husband, friends and family, with my daughter and even with myself.

When I looked at my daughter I always did a medical scan: Is she dehydrated?  Is she going to vomit? What medicine does she need? She was my patient and I was her nurse.  I didn’t like this.  I wanted to feel the mother-daughter relationship, to see her as a person, not just see her illness or the burdens that came with it. I wanted to connect with her.

Then I heard Henry Kimsey-House from the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) talk about the work he does.  He spoke about how he believed that people are naturally creative, resourceful and whole.  Being seen as someone who is strong, who didn’t need to be fixed changed my view of myself and opened up possibilities.  Through the coaching I received during training with CTI I rediscovered my strengths, connected to myself and discovered my daughter; the child behind the illness.

Using my coach training, personal and business experience, I support others to connect with their strengths and pursue their goals, whatever they may be.
