Are You a Rhino, Elephant, Ostrich or Rabbit?

Are You a Rhino, Elephant, Ostrich or Rabbit?


I’m thrilled you’ve found your way into my world. I’m a choice coach, visionary, strategist, connector and author of The Book of Choice. With over twenty-five years of experience as a serial entrepreneur and a passion for coaching people to make meaningful choices, I guide my clients through a profoundly personal and spiritual journey of self-discovery.

As a coach, I’ve had the privilege of working with creative, visionary entrepreneurs who often feel overwhelmed by the details of bringing their ideas to life. My unique approach, the Choice Mapping System™, helps you explore the choices you’ve made in the past and will make in the future, and literally “see” the places you’ve been stuck. Through compassionate questioning and brutally honest truth, we’ll uncover untrod paths of potential and open up new possibilities that will impact your relationships, career path, confidence, and personal power.

My clients have achieved tangible outcomes, from launching successful businesses to creating meaningful change in their lives. By leveraging my expertise in marketing, strategy, and implementation, we’ll work together to make your dreams a reality.

I’m excited to connect with you on this journey. Let’s explore the possibilities together. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a consultation to take the next step toward making your meaningful choices a reality.

Today, after a winding entrepreneurial journey, my passion is coaching people to make their meaningful choices.

These choices are the intentional ones, those that come with a conscious commitment to do something that matters to you, and that have the ability to create great momentum and impact in your life and the life of others.

I help you to explore the details of the choices you’ve made in the past and will make in the future. It’s a profoundly personal and spiritual journey, and it works because I give you the compassionate space to answer raw, soul-searching questions with brutally honest truth.

Utilizing my Choice Mapping System™ you’ll come to literally “see” the places you’ve been stuck. You’ll begin to notice untrod paths of potential. And you’ll discover, that opening up to new possibilities will have an enormous impact on your relationships, career path, confidence and personal power.

As you reflect upon the past you can choose to look back from a place of judgment, assessing what you did wrong and beating yourself up for all you wish you’d done differently, or you can mine your past for the key choices, made in a moment of strength, that set the tone and inform who you are today. These choices will stand out as lighthouses, each guiding the way to the next.

You can see how this works (and get to know me a little better!) by looking at snapshots of five pivotal choices I’ve made that set the foundation upon which I’m proud to stand.

As you reflect upon your past, you have a choice. You can choose to look back with judgment, focusing on what you did wrong and beating yourself up for past mistakes. Alternatively, you can choose to mine your past for the intentional choices you made in moments of strength, choices that have shaped who you are today. These choices will stand out as lighthouses, each guiding the way to the next. 

Expanding my college major of economics to include art history was my first meaningful choice.

Looking back with adult eyes, I see how this decision informed the entire trajectory of my life. It allowed me to explore my own definition of creativity, despite my initial fear of disappointing my father. It was a declaration of my independence and a demonstration of my inner strength to make decisions based on what I believe is best for me.

At 25, I chose to leave New York City to move to San Francisco to take a job with The Gap.

This choice set the tone for me being someone who makes decisions independently, trusts my gut, and believes that the choices I make in the moment will serve me in the long run. I didn’t consult anyone before saying yes to The Gap’s offer, quitting my job, and moving across the country, demonstrating my willingness to take risks and embrace new opportunities.

I cancelled a wedding two weeks before the wedding date.

Two weeks before my wedding, at 27, I made the difficult choice to cancel the wedding to my college boyfriend. Despite my fears of being single and uncertain about my future, I didn’t let those fears dictate my decision. It was a choice made out of self-care and deep inner knowing, which gave me confidence in my ability to take care of myself and opened up possibilities for future relationships. That memory of who I was when I made that choice has stayed with me and reverberates into future choices when I need that strength.

I started my first entrepreneurial venture while pregnant with my first child.

Starting my first entrepreneurial venture while pregnant with my first child was a significant choice I made at 32. Although I was initially fearful about the financial implications of being let go from a big retail job, I saw it as a blessing in disguise. I chose to leap into the unknown and uncertain space of entrepreneurship, which not only opened up new opportunities professionally but also fostered my confidence and risk-taking abilities.

I chose to divorce after 15 years of marriage.

I made this choice from a place of resilience and self-care, recognizing that I was not happy and that the marriage was not serving either of us. It was a difficult decision that affected my whole family, but I trusted that by taking a stand for myself, I would ultimately benefit my children and create space for new possibilities in my life.

Reflecting on these choices, I see that the key qualities I love about myself today, such as my inner strength, independence, self-care, and trust in my inner knowing, were taking shape in my younger self. These choices were evidence of the seeds that were germinating within me, even though I may not have fully recognized them at the time. By putting my life under a microscope and becoming an investigator of my past, I’ve gained a deeper appreciation for how my choices have shaped my journey and who I’ve become today.

I invite you to reflect upon your own intentional choices and discover the lighthouses that have guided you on your path. Together, let’s embark upon your journey of self-discovery and growth.

Is there a particular choice from your past that’s been weighing you down that you want to understand more clearly? Do you feel stuck when it comes to making a present-day choice? I’d be honored to help you gain clarity. For more information about coaching with me around your choices, please click here.
