I'm excited and looking forward to having the opportunity to work with you and support your steps toward actualizing the vision you have for your life & career.
As your Breakthrough Coach & Keynote Speaker it is my passion to introduce you to the proven tools and resources I offer that will empower, inspire and accelerate the ability to reach your life and career goals with clarity and intention.
First, I’d like to share a bit of my life experience with you, it has been my greatest teacher.
For more than 15 years I’ve been an advocate for mental health. It is one of many experiences that has helped to propel me into speaking, advocacy and coaching.
It all began with my sister's diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia. Accompanying her, on this unexpected journey, resulted in a process that brought me closer to my purpose through a study of human behavior and a realization of our profound ability to survive, create and thrive.
As a lifelong learner based in the immutable and universal truths of the Bible while also embracing the evolution that life demands of us all, these revolutionary life tools have been a catalyst for my understanding of the human soul. ie. the will, mind and emotional life that informs our perception and interpretation of life and the role our spirit plays in our ability to reach our highest desires and goals.
My experience as a trained method actor also provided techniques that helped me face my fears and heal from childhood trauma and the behavior that ensued. Acting furthered my understanding of how to unlock the why behind human behavior. It also provided me with invaluable tools as a personal development coach.
The application of creative business strategies allowed me to establish two successful international careers that I am grateful to have enjoyed as a professional model & cover girl, with top agencies in LA & NYC, and later as a working film & television actor in both Los Angeles, NYC as well as an extraodinary five month adventure in Rome, Italy where I met the infamous director Federico Fellini and was directed by the beloved singer/actor, Adriano Celentano. Back in the US, I stepped into my film career with a featured role in Francis Ford Coppola's, The Cotton Club, and later, my first series regular role for HBO directed by the the amazingly gifted Carl Franklin.
While working with these esteemed and celebrated artist, I inherited a deep appreciation for the masters of the craft of filmmaking and their ability to effect our understanding of the human narrative. These encounters influenced my decision to attend Santa Monica College Film School where I received degrees in both Film Production and International Film Studies.
Both my personal and professional experiences have incentivized every career choice I've made, creating a convergence of acting & filmmaking, mental health advocacy, and keynote speaking. As a Certified Life Coach it all comes together to benefit creatives & entrepreneurs alike. My entire life both personal and professional have converged into a purpose driven perspective that activate and ignites my everything.
It's amazing how our life experiences unwittingly nurtures our ability to empower others as we fulfill our personal vision of a purpose.
