President & Chief Empowerment Officer at Life Touch Coaching
Life Touch Coaching, LLC was formed in 2008 with the vision of helping people lead extraordinary lives.
I share my background with you as a simple introduction and not to "show what I know." What's most important is that you come to realize how much I enjoy working with people who are really up to something in life, people just like you, not just rambling on about where I've been and what I know.
Having said that, one thing I do know for sure is that it’s no accident you and I are both here at this very moment in time; and, it's my fervent hope that you'll be inspired by what you read here, inspired enough to begin questioning your level of engagement and your level of energy in life. To start thinking about whether you're really down on the court or up in the stands. No matter where you find yourself, consider this: it's time to grab the ball and start living, to start creating the life of your greatest imagining. After all, you weren't meant to live an ordinary life.
A native New Jerseyan, I began my academic journey as an undergraduate with a B.A. from Rutgers University where I majored in Communication and minored in English. Soon thereafter, I began a corporate Sales and Marketing career, working for such Fortune 500 companies as Bristol-Myers Squibb, AT&T, and Lucent Technologies. With a continued thirst for academia, I went back to school in the evenings and pursued my graduate degree, receiving an M.B.A. in Marketing from Fairleigh-Dickinson University. Along the way, I was fortunate to enhance my education with supplemental programs at The Wharton School of Business and the Kellogg Graduate School of Management. In 2002, I left corporate America and pursued a position with a mid-size, private company, ultimately leading to my relocation to Atlanta in 2004.
My business career aside, I’ve always had an avid interest in understanding people and getting to know what brings them joy and personal fulfillment. Not one for “surface” conversation, I like to describe my experience with others more like scuba diving than snorkeling. I want to discover, and come to know, that bright light that shines within all of us. This passion is one that I decided to pursue as a profession when I learned about the business of Coaching. In 2007, I enrolled in a coaching program with the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC*), and became a Certified Empowerment Coach in 2008 and an Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner in 2009. In addition, I hold memberships in the International Coach Federation and the International Association of Women in Business Coaching and serve on the Board of the Georgia Coach Association.
Achieving this goal has been the fulfillment of one of my greatest dreams, and now I have the privilege of working with others to achieve theirs.
