About Me

My last day at ICON, an award-winning computer company I started shortly after college, was not about heroics, a pinnacle of success, or the kind of buyout wished for by entrepreneurs. It didn’t come by way of illness, accident, or dismissal–but by way of sheer self-mutiny. The self I was born to be, decided to hijack the one I had created.

To help me move through my spontaneous revolt, I began to write, read, and explore everything I could find on human development and achieving our most innate potential.  Within a few short years, this lead me to develop my childhood passion to become a writer, and into an opportunity to return to the workforce as an Executive Coach.

Eighteen years later, I have coached over a thousand executives including some of the most influential leaders in Media, Entertainment and Technology. Many of the common themes I see in the workforce, I also write about in my books and blog. My most recent book, The Invitation, A Weekend with Emma won several book festival awards. The accolades reminded me that childhood dreams can come true when we make time to develop our passions.
