" THERE IS A CRACK IN everything, THAT'S HOW THE light GETS IN"
....or do you have Motherhood set-up in opposition to everything else you love?
Do you believe that to have or grow a family you must sacrifice one or more of your passions?
I help career-driven women who dare to have it all set the stage for a powerful next transition. Whether it’s birth, a new job, new parenthood, successful reintegration into a career, a bold life, or relationship pivot, it can be done without all the set-backs and the trade-offs we fear.
What I've found is that most women who love their careers journey through motherhood prepared to give something up, believing they must trade in some aspect of the life they love like an exciting career, fulfilling marriage, leadership opportunities, or personal freedom. Not wanting to hand over any of it for the good they set off in search of the right work-life balance, project managing their way into motherhood, always trading quality time, energy, presence, and joy in one area for overwhelm, depletion, distraction, or absence in another.
The secret to having it all is loving it all.
It's time to design and live into your own version of "it all" by getting as real about what you want in motherhood and relationships (and what you don’t) as you are about what you want in your work.
It's time to discover your vision and values for motherhood and align them with your commitments to personal and professional growth.
It's time to stop striving for balance (it’s a myth!) and begin to show up powerfully to both your mission and your mothering!
What if the voice in your head was your greatest champion and not your worst critic?
What if you were more in touch with all the reasons why you will succeed and
why you will keep going in the face of a challenge than with all the ways it might be hard?
Because it's actually not about sacrifice, time management, or work-life balance. What most of us are missing is clarity around what we want, the empty space to steep in our dreams, practice identifying our needs, and surrendering control so true support can show up and make way for the results we most desire.
I AM SERENITY-HEART-ZEAL-JOY- life
I live in Rochester, NY where it is an honor to lead from the rule book of life written by my 4 yr old daughter, to dance endlessly with my 2 yr old son, and pave the way for their futures with my 6'5" husband.
I support leaders who are mothers to show up fully to their missions and their mothering.
I hold space for all women to transform from whom they thought they “had" to be or “ should" become, into who they most want to be for themselves, and have what they desire most in their marriages, for their children, and in their communities.
