"I specialize in helping individuals and couples who are within five years of retirement and/or recently retired, create a rewarding and fulfilling Purpose-Driven Retirement and Third Act Life.
"I can help you to 1) discover and define your retirement vision,
2) develop a specific Encore Life Plan on how to achieve your goals, and
3) implement your plan, to define and achieve your best life."
Clients usually come to coaching to do things differently, or to do different things. They want to get unstuck, figure out their priorities, set goals, develop plans, take action, and use the accountability of coaching to get results.
As your coach, my job is to help you:
- articulate your dreams, desires, and aspiration
- clarify your mission, purpose, and goals in life
- achieve the outcomes you desire.
My goal is to help you uncover your true potential, and lead a life that is worth celebrating. I am dedicated to helping you make radical improvements in your life and relationships.
A little about me
My life has always been purpose-driven, giving dedicated effort to my family, employment, community, and a life of service. Six years ago, as I was considering retirement from an executive position within State Government, I had a desire to create my own fulfilling Encore Life.
In my quest to discover how to do this, I started reading every book that I could on purpose-driven retirement. I became certified as an AARP Life Reimagined group leader, and ran AARP groups across the state, helping people age 50 and over prepare for their transition into their latter years.
I loved this work, and found that this is what I wanted to do, as part of my own Encore Life. I invite you to join me in this process of ongoing discovery and growth.
The individuals I love coaching
are seeking to grow beyond the traditional retirement path.
They may have found that a life of leisure and travel did not bring the complete fulfillment they were seeking.
These individuals may have found fulfillment in their prior career, community, family, and service roles.
They are now seeking to find new ways to carry on this inward drive, during their latter decades.
I thrive on working with individuals who may have had hopes that were unrealized in their earlier years, who now want to make those postponed dreams a reality.
