The challenge of introducing oneself succinctly when one wants to be both "known" and "appreciated" . . .
Hmmmm! What to tell?
I believe Muriel Ruckhauser got it right when she said, "The world is made up of stories, not atoms." Of course, this brief page is not the place for stories. Still, I would start by telling about my beginnings - about my life in New York, about my diverse working experiences - with the blind, in the hotel industry, in international marketing research, as an assistant fashion editor.
Then I would tell about my love of learning, about becoming a cooking teacher because of my adventures with food here and abroad, and about discovering alternatives to traditional medicine because my child was very ill. I would talk about how what I learned in the process set me on a life path first as a nutritionist and then as a life coach. As my experience with coaching and the power of provocative and positive questions grew, I was invited to bring my work into business and organizational settings. These invitations in turn led me to explore such cutting edge technologies as Emotional Intelligence, Appreciative Inquiry, and Authentic Happiness and their impact on the bottom line.
I enjoy being active and working out. I've been a marathon runner and a tennis player and now really enjoy the challenge of golf. I love quiet time and time with good friends and family. I also especially love women's circles and other meaningful dialogues and connectivities. I have been involved in many over the last 25 years. I have facilitated many different types of women's groups and Essential Conversations and have co-authored, with Marsha Lehman, The PJ Party Retreat Book - Women Really Love to Have Fun, about women coming together in a particularly joyful way.
There you have it . . . a bit of this and that. I hope you've enjoyed getting to know something about me in this way.
Yours in the spirit and adventure of it all,
