my story

I have loved singing and performing on stage for as long as I can remember. I was four when I decided I wanted to audition in the Broadway musical Annie.

After college, I ventured into the world of advertising. I drew on the wealth of lessons from the music business to become one of the youngest executives with the highest client billings at two boutique agencies in the Minneapolis region. After 12 years in advertising, I left to re-engage with my musical career and pursue a new calling in executive leadership and coaching.

Since then, I have been working diligently to bring together my creative and coaching gifts and help clients achieve their goals and unlock their potential.
