3. When I wake up in the morning the first thing I do is?
Stretch and hit a brief meditation on the Balance app before drinking a glass of water (then coffee!)
4. My best business advice is….
…to be yourself. Don’t spend time trying to be someone else, because you’re learning and iterating in your own lane – nobody else’s. Your growth will accelerate the clearer your focus becomes, and the more comfortable you are communicating your unique value-add to the world.
5. My professional goal for 2021 is…
To enroll 100 people in my new job search group coaching program, Career Maven Academy, by the end of the year.
6. Supporting women in business is now more critical than ever. How can our community best support you?
Follow me on social media to amplify content that resonates with you, or purchase a coaching session or seat in The Resume Cure for someone in your life that would benefit from clarity & accountability with a career coach. (links available in my social media bio/website)

12. When I practice self-care I…
…turn off all devices and close my eyes, take a ride on my spin bike, or play a game and read with my daughter.
13. The place I am happiest is…
…in the company of my closest friends (even virtually!)
14. People are surprised to learn I…
…am actually an introvert. I’m pretty talkative and a lot of my work requires a good bit of sharing energy with others through coaching sessions and speaking engagements, but I draw my energy from strategically placed quiet time away from others.
15. 2020 taught me…
…not one thing in this life is promised, so don’t put off anything that’s gnawing at you for the future. Begin it, or do it now.
