    Since 2007, I have been credentialed as a Certified Professional Coach with the International Coach Federation (the world’s largest professional coaching body), a process that requires me to adhere to a tough Code of Ethics, keep my professional development up to date and to demonstrate my training, knowledge, experience and capability to impartial expert examiners.

    I have been studying and practicing meditation for over 15yrs and I am currently enrolled as a student in The Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program, a 2-Year Professional Training Program for Teaching Awareness and Compassion-Based Practices taught in person by Jack Kornfield & Tara Brach. Upon completion of the program, I will be certified by both the Awareness Training Institute and University of California Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center. 

    ​I have completed both introductory and advanced courses in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) at Duke Integrative Medicine. Mindfulness and meditation are a big part of my life.

    As a businesswoman and entrepreneur I have decades of experience working for Fortune 100 companies, small technology start-ups and nonprofit organizations, currently serving as Vice President of a global software company.  

    I have completed studies at the One Spirit Interfaith Seminary in New York City receiving ordination as an interfaith minister in 2008, then serving as assistant dean. My current focus is on the study and practice of Buddhist principles and ethics.
