What advice would you give your new parent self?

None of the parenting experts in the world are the mother of YOUR child. You can trust yourself … and if you have an intuition, you are probably right.

What three words best describe your style as a coach?

Warm, curious and wise

I’m torn between two opposite strategies! Getting out into nature on a beautiful day hits my reset button like nothing else. If it’s raining (like it often is here in Seattle) curling up with a great book feels like total indulgence and makes me feel so refreshed.
