I was born and raised in a small town in northeastern Vermont surrounded by incredible natural beauty. I am grateful to have grown up in a caring, close-knit community of people who shared a love of the outdoors and respected independent thinking.
Vermont will always live in my heart, but I left that place long ago to pursue wider horizons and a lifelong journey of learning, adventure, and impact. I went to Harvard University for college and graduate school and later made a life-changing move to New York City. Succeeding in big schools and urban settings required a series of profound personal reinventions, so I know firsthand what transformation feels like and what it requires. In my coaching practice, I draw enormous inspiration from supporting individuals on their own path to learning new things, making change happen, and expanding their impact.
