No longer settles for "good enough"

I'm a former Talent & Development Leader in Pharma/Biotech turned CEO and Certified Professional Career & Life Coach. I also host the podcast, Your Worthy Career.

I've been where you are, and I help you create the career you want without working more hours or settling for good enough.

I didn’t always have a career I loved: enabling clients to exceed their goals, making a difference for generations to come, and a podcast with thousands of downloads.


I started my career following my interests with the focus on getting a good job with good benefits. When I achieved that, in fact more success and money than I thought I ever would, I looked around and thought “there has to be more than this”.

But I doubted myself. I feared making the wrong decision. I told myself that I was the problem and should be grateful. I tried to be more like the leaders around me. Plus, I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted, I just wanted something more.

I have always been passionate about helping others and impacting the greater society, but it wasn’t until I discovered Organizational Psychology that it clicked.

When I started coaching women in the Pharma industry I knew this was what I was meant to do.


I figured out exactly what I wanted and built the confidence to go after it. Then I created the short cut for women in the industry to do the same.

I created a proven process and tools that won’t just have you knowing exactly what you want and how to get it, but you will enjoy going to work, work less hours, enjoy time with your family and friends, and feel like you (maybe for the first time).

Happiness and fulfillment in your career isn’t a luxury.

It's a standard.

My Timeline

2020

2020 Left the Corporate world and went full-time in my Coaching business. The Podcast was born.

2019

Established my business, became certified as a Professional coach and started working with clients in the evenings.

2018

Earned my Masters in Organizational Psychology and started leading Talent & Development at a global Pharmaceutical company.

2016

Started Coaching and Career Counseling in the Industry.

I’ve worked with 100+ women in the industry to define what they want their career to look like and create it. 

From knowing what you want, getting promoted, making more money, having the work/life balance you feel good about, building the self-confidence to advocate for yourself and overcome the thoughts that hold you back and leading high performing teams, my clients have gotten results.

You get the tangible career results and the ripple effect of improved relationships at home, sleeping better, eliminating anxiety, and bringing more joy to your life.

The return on your investment pays you back over and over. Month after month. Year after year.

This is sustainable and effective results you don’t get from any other development solution.

We make an impact with our clients, but also in society by giving back and helping to elevate those in marginalized communities. 

As a woman who is part of the LGBTQ+ community and raising a blended family from different origins and backgrounds, I care deeply about creating an equitable workplace and society.

A portion of the profit from Your Worthy Career is donated each year to nonprofit organizations that support women’s access and quality of healthcare, as well as fight the injustices that occur daily — from the Whole Woman’s Health Alliance to the ACLU.

Your Worthy Career also offers partial scholarships in our leadership development program for women who identify as Black, Indigenous, People of Color, Asian American and Pacific Islander, and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, or Questioning + who are right for and could benefit from the program.
