I am a certified coach, certified narrative medicine practitioner, mentor, teacher, and sought-after keynote speaker. I have additional training in appreciative coaching, forgiveness, and grief recovery. A physician for over 25 years, I am continually inspired by people who have faced unexpected life events and continued to thrive and to grow.
My mission is to help transform lives by helping people to tap into their inner wisdom and strengths to move past obstacles in relationships, at work, and in play. I am a believer in the power of forgiveness and of deep listening. I am an advocate for equity and inclusion.
I am a wife, mom to two daughters… well, 3, including Daisy the Wonderpup, daughter, sister, and friend. I’m an avid reader, recovering perfectionist, sometimes pianist or poet, chocolate aficionado, and teller of bad jokes (that I laugh waaaay too hard at with very little shame). I was born in Cleveland, raised in New York, and am now based in Ann Arbor, MI.
