Experienced coach. Lots of training and credentials.. Personal experience in becoming a grandma. Warm, supportive, and easy to talk to.
After working with my husband for 20 years to grow our small retail store into a large, multi-location business (Gary’s Wine & Marketplace), I decided it was time to pursue my own passion, empowering people to live the lives of their dreams. Initially drawn to coaching to work with women undergoing infertility treatments (due to my personal experience), I loved my coach training at the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) so much that I joined the company as a partner in 2007.
In my role as Senior Vice President of Program Development, I helped develop many of iPEC’s programs including Life & Leadership Potentials Training, a three-day experiential workshop in which participants learn to live to their potential, the Law of Being, a self-study personal development program, and COR.E Dynamics, a system for enhancing personal performance and potential. At iPEC, I also helped develop iPEC's assessments (the ELI and SCOPE) and worked on research related to our methodology.
I left my position at iPEC in 2019. My plan was to slow down a bit, but the universe had other plans. Since “retiring,” Gary and I opened a new store in Napa Valley, one of our favorite places in the world. I spent several months in Chicago after my grandson was born in November 2019, supporting the new family during their fourth trimester. When everything shut down in March due to COVID-19, our son and his girlfriend joined me and Gary in NJ, and a couple of months later, our daughter, son-in-law, grandson, and their dog joined us. A blessing to be able to spend time with our family, but definitely not the retirement I’d envisioned!
In becoming a grandparent, I realized how much my coach training had helped me navigate the transition and decided to refocus my coaching practice on helping others through their grandparenting journeys.
