Certified Grief Recovery Specialist
Having been a person that was always putting myself second in order to meet others' expectations, my life’s journey of experiencing detours, dead-ends and losses lead me to a transition of change. It was through these times that I was able to see the map in full-view, to see that living my life following others’ expectations was unfulfilling and to release the many chains that were holding me back.
In my career, I have been the go-to person in crisis situations due to my calm demeanor. My philosophy is that we don’t make mistakes, we receive lessons. With this philosophy in mind, even during a crisis, I am able to ask questions to find out what there is to learn from a situation and what opportunities there are for growth.
Having spent over 30 years in various areas of the medical field, I have found that we have adopted a “band-aide” philosophy in terms of care, with which I don’t agree. My goal at Key to Harmony is to help each person release the energy that blocks their ability to achieve their true potential— not simply apply band-aides when solutions are available. My work as a Transition Professional focuses on the individual and their needs.
When I’m not guiding others toward empowered transitions in their lives, I enjoy gardening and dog walking in the park. I love working with animals and cooking, deeming myself a bit of an at-home-gourmet chef!

Coaches played an important part of my development. I played football for Yale, and developing young men into leaders and pillars of their communities was more important than victory on the gridiron. As a manager in the railroad industry, I have participated in great team success by using my coaching skills. It gives me great satisfaction to see people succeed. In the case of End of Life transitions, I coach the friends and family of individuals diagnosed with terminal conditions.
