Moxie is Me
“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
The path of my life has never been straight. There are turns, twists, backward steps and huge leaps forward. Yet, I’m intensely proud of my journey and everything that I learned along the way.
I have a Master’s in Medieval History. I moved to the UK in my 20’s for 4 years and worked at the Royal Armouries (then at the Tower of London). I started my corporate career back in the US in management consulting focused on thought leadership. From there, I jumped into sales and marketing in technology consulting. Still in sales and marketing, I’ve spent the past 10 years on the clinical research side of the pharmaceutical industry. I experienced coaching for the first time when I was coached out of a job. The executive coach I was working with said “every day you stay here violates your core values.” My number one core value is integrity, so I quit with no other job to go to, as the sole provider for my family. HUGE leap!
So, based on that experience, I started down the coaching path. I am a professional coach fully trained and certified as an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coaching Federation and as a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) through the Coaches Training Institute. I’m certified as a divorce mediator in Massachusetts. And I also hosted a radio show – Divorce Sucks: A Smart Girls’ Guide To Doing It Better – on VoiceAmerica in early 2015. I’m also an accomplished writer with articles featured in Huffington Post Divorce, Parents.com, Care2.com, YourTango, The Smart Divorce Network and Solo Parent Magazine. Based in the United States, I have coached individuals all over the world including Spain, Nigeria, Colombia and the UK.
I am also divorced with two young children. My divorce process took two and a half years and a huge bite out of my bank account. It also changed how I live and work and play. I live better, with a dedicated focus on balance and health. I work smarter, with perspective and purpose. And I play harder, with joy and a huge amount of gratitude. The bumps in the road aren’t meant to stop you. They’re there to help you learn something you need to get to the next step. And they’re there to help you appreciate that you are walking (running, jumping, leaping) on your the path at all.
