Hello, I'm Charlotte

I get it. Because that was me. And I know there’s a way to get you there because I did it.

 I was offered partnership at a top travel law firm before I turned 30, and to the outside world, I had quickly achieved the career success I had been striving for. But something felt off. The work was challenging and high-level, but I didn’t enjoy it anymore. I wasn’t happy. I wanted more but couldn’t put my finger on what that was.

I know how it feels to be at the top of your game yet deeply dissatisfied. Like something’s missing but you can’t quite figure out what because there’s so much going on in your life and you don’t know where to start.

That’s why I created the Life Design for Lawyers Program – to simplify and demystify the process of figuring out what you want from life and how to get there, whether that’s pivoting to a new role within the legal industry that feels more aligned with your core values, pivoting out of law entirely and starting your own business, or simply making conscious mindset and lifestyle changes to achieve a more balanced and satisfying life.

I am an attorney and Charlotte has been helping me with her 5 step coaching program. Next to the fact that she has a warm and open personality, she really knows how to ask the right questions, gets you to think deeper, and translates all the goals into practical priorities really well. It has been such a delight to work with her, on a personal and professional level.
