Through my effective coaching methods, I educate, support, and inspire my clients with long-term healthy habits and mindset changes. If you're ready to transition, heal and rebuild, then you're in the right place!
My passion for wellness started over 25 years ago as a collegiate athlete and wanting to maintain good physical health while feeding my competitive drive.
By combining my experience as a senior corporate executive and accredited coach, I create corporate cultures that shift employees into flow so they can solve critical challenges and achieve peak performance. My approach combines cognitive science, cutting edge-health modalities and business mastery to identify and optimize the biggest factor that sets companies apart from their competition: employee wellbeing + performance.
In today’s unprecedented business climate, a corporate culture that prioritizes employee wellbeing fosters innovation and risk-taking, which is key for attracting and retaining high achievers. That’s because health and wellbeing are much more than just a healthy diet or exercise regimen–––it’s the mental focus, grit, and positive psychology that these behaviors create.
I help both individuals and companies create this culture through an integrated approach to employee wellbeing that combines high-performance coaching, customized training, and executive leadership support.

My career began as a sales executive, for The Coca-Cola Company, where eventually I held an international director role managing the global business for one of their top clients for Latin America and the Caribbean. I am currently a Florida resident, and enjoy being active through jogging, golf, gym workouts, dancing, and I love to travel.
I invite you to connect with me to explore how you can set up your own personalize wellbeing goals, what’s been slowing you down from having the health and life you want, and to discuss a powerful plan for sustaining healthy habits and mindset changes for a happier and balanced life!
