My life has been about facing challenges and moving forward. I have had some great successes – first New York Director of Project Linus, stand up comic in Manhattan and comedy writer for WNBC radio, a member of Who’s Who in American Poetry and surviving a near fatal car accident (along with 15 surgeries) to some sobering disappointments. But each experience has helped me become the person I am today. And a healthy dose of humor has made getting thru each chapter in my life quite doable.
The decision to “reinvent” myself came after 20 years in the NYC advertising field. Sprinkled in between I created and sold my own jewelry designs, worked as a fundraiser and an AIDS volunteer and operated an upscale consignment business. But I wanted more in my life and I wanted to connect with motivated women who were looking to take a similar journey.
I went back to school and became a certified creative life and transition coach. My colorful background, life experiences and non-judgmental nature give me a unique perspective on life and the notion that change is not to be feared, but embraced. We fabulous women in our 40s, 50s and 60s have learned much and have earned the right to discover new passions in our lives. I've also learned that if you really listen, life gives you the clues to discover your blueprint for success in all the areas of your life.
My philosophy is if you long to take that unfinished manuscript out of storage, paint with Paris as a backdrop to your artistic side, start a new business or change careers or become happier by peeling away those old tired layers of insecurity, now is the time. It is never too late to be the person you need to be. To be the person the world needs you to be.
