My Professional Experience
I have been working with clients for over 20 years, guiding and coaching them on how to achieve their goals in life, working in the fields of Staffing, Development, Training, and Consulting. I have consulted with individuals on a global level to help them with their careers and personal lives working through transitions, personal relationships, loss of loved ones, relocations, career changes, and executive level corporate decisions. I served as a leader and consultant to companies globally and have managed groups of up to 25 employees, and have taken companies to increase profit by 200-300%.
I am a member of a number of groups and organizations in Boston and the North Shore, such as North Shore Women In Business, DWC Meet-up, and the North Shore Chamber. I am also a member of the Boston Minstrel's, a group of singers and musicians who volunteer their time to sing to Homeless Shelters and Prisons throughout the greater Boston area.
I have always had a passion, even as a young adult, for helping people look at the brighter side of life, and to know that there is that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. I am of the belief that we all must empower one another, and to treat others as we wish to be treated ourselves.
I have a very positive attitude. I grew up with a passion to be a dancer, which fulfilled the creative and artful side of myself, and have always been a person who looks on the brighter side of any situation. I was married for 25 years, and was delightfully happy. I lost my husband, a caring, talented, loving partner and father, and a science professor. The positive impact he left on our lives has been irreplaceable. I have two absolutely wonderful sons from my marriage, both extremely talented, and most importantly, also very loving and kind individuals. I reside on the North Shore of Boston, in a very peaceful setting surrounded by the ocean, birds, and a variety of wildlife,
My personal life experiences have given me great insight into how life can throw many challenges at us, and that, no matter what, how we manage and deal with those challenges will affect the quality and happiness of our lives forever. I was a baby of 11 children, born and reared in the country, on a farm. I learned so much about team effort, respect, work ethic in doing my portion of chores, learning the value of being part of a loving family, and being fortunate enough to have been able to wake up every morning and see the beautiful sun shine, roosters crow, birds sing. I had a truly loving, compassionate, generous, and insightful mother. She was my role model. I had the pleasure of watching my nieces and nephews grow up around my mother, and had the privilege of being with a person, as she was, who had great wisdom. I lost most of my family, parents, and husband while in my 30’s and 40’s and I find that I can look back with a few tears, a happy heart, and a positive attitude, that I had the privilege of such a wonderful learning and growing experience. I still have a loving older sister, and we understand how fortunate we both are. As corny as it sounds, life is a journey, so accept it with open arms, embrace what it can teach you, and know that you can be happy in life, no matter what the journey brings – use it to move forward, learn from it, and give yourself permission to be at peace with it. As they say – Life Is Not a Dress Rehearsal. So I bring to you what I have learned and that is ‘Hope’ and ‘Happiness.’
