My Story

Helping lawyers and leaders create happy and successful lives...

Image

For many years I was successfully climbing the corporate ladder at a top-tier law firm in the UK working long days and nights, always pressuring myself to succeed…  to achieve the next goal.

I lived for that next high of handling a high profile matter or landing a big client. I was an overloaded success junkie who didn’t make time for my health, friends, or family.

Like many lawyers at the top of their game, my career success came at the expense of everything else in my life – everything that actually made me happy. 

After 7 years at a top law firm, a prestigious 30 Under 30 Award, and an offer of partnership, the universe (as it sometimes likes to do) sent me my crossroad moment: Take the offer of partnership or move to Silicon Valley, California.

 I chose the latter.

6 years later, I live in the Bay Area and am so honored to be living my dream career as a lawyer coach helping busy, high-achieving lawyers design more balanced and joyful lives.

Let's get personal

My father passed away when I was 12 years old. He was only 42.

My father was an architect who deeply appreciated art and creation. I’ve inherited that appreciation for creation from him, and his untimely death taught me that life is too short to be unhappy.

Life is too short.

That is my guidepost for how I live my life. Life is too short to be unfulfilled. To be unhappy. Each of us is smart, each of us is capable of living the life we want to live. Whatever circumstances come our way, we can handle them and manifest the life we want to live because we are capable of cultivating our own harmony and joy.

Why Silicon Valley?

Although my husband’s work initially brought me to Silicon Valley, I could not imagine a better place to be doing the work I do. Silicon Valley is the epicenter of innovation, which is fitting as I am from a place in the UK where the Industrial Revolution started.  

In my mind, Silicon Valley is the birthplace of the tech and innovation revolution. It’s also the birthplace of a new age spiritual awakening. From the fusion of East meets West culture to the availability of crystals in Whole Foods. 😉

I bring this fervor for tech, agile systems, productivity platforms to my coaching. I believe that status quo breeds stagnation and innovation breeds invigoration. That is why I am so honored to be helping lawyers innovate their lives and achieve more holistic success – success in their careers AND in life in general. Because it’s all linked. 

I regularly partner with law firms and in-house legal teams at Silicon Valley tech companies and also bring this innovative approach to my virtual work with lawyers around the world.

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.
