Through her company, Creating with Confidence, she works with individuals of all levels and disciplines to create and maintain prosperous, successful, and happy professional lives – both at work and home.

Her cross-disciplined understanding of coaching and progress inform her work helping clients perform at their optimal level, achieve their dream careers, and lead lives they genuinely love. Her coaching services are appropriate for artists, musicians, writers, other creatives, and professionals.

As a professional opera singer for over twenty years, I too have experienced the incredible highs and debilitating lows that can only be truly and deeply understood by a fellow artist. Without consciousness, it becomes challenging for artists to perform optimally on stage and in auditions, build and expand a desired professional career, and lead a balanced personal life. I know because I have been there.

From the chronic self-doubt, performance anxiety, financial stress, and constant wondering, “Do I really have what it takes to make it?” to finally achieving worldwide success and undergoing the stress required to keep it, I’ve been through it all. This isn’t unique to me, or even to the music field- it’s something most passionate professionals will naturally experience at some time or another. Coaching is what can make the difference between how long you suffer and how long until you see your life start to turn around and go in a direction you are excited about again.

As a certified, practicing coach, I have insight into what methods will work for each individual client. At the same time, I like to think that my professional artistic experience allows me to offer a level of support and empathy coaching that can only come from understanding what it’s like to want your life’s passion and your life to be one and the same.

You want to be wildly successful yet have balance. You want to have a life you love. Well, you deserve it. And I’m deeply committed to helping you find it.

Whether you’re just starting out in your career or already professionally thriving, working with a coach is an investment in the quality of your life. The best Olympic athletes continue to have coaches. World-renowned executives use coaches. Celebrated actors have coaches. Now, with Creating with Confidence, I am opening the door to see what creatives can do with just a little coaching.

If we work together, I’ll be at your side every single step of the way – supporting you, pushing you, guiding you, and helping you bridge the gap between where you are today, and where you want your career and life to take you tomorrow.
