About me

As a Stay At Home Mom you devoted yourself to raising your family & now your kids are more independent than ever.  The role you once played is less fulfilling and you find yourself feeling lost, unsure of what you have to offer and wondering what's next.  

If you find yourself here - congratulations, you are at the beginning of a new & exciting season of motherhood.  A season that if nurtured & tended to, will result in more fulfillment than you thought possible. 


My Journey...


By the time I became a mother I had spent my life being a textbook overachiever.  My life was a checklist and I was checking things off left and right.  There was no meandering or taking my time, I was on a path to success and nothing was going to stop me.

So, I got the degrees, I had the job and I started working on the family.  I had a beautiful, perfect baby girl, but soon after she was born, I found myself in the middle of an identity crisis.  I loved my daughter fiercely but there were parts of motherhood I didn't like, and for the first time in my life, I felt like a failure.  When it came time for me to return to work, I thought, "Okay, something I'm good at…" but I soon realized that I didn't care as much about the next promotion or that high visibility project.  The driven, ambitious Hillary was nowhere to be found and that life checklist I had in my head morphed from motivation to oppression.  I tried in vain to make new life fit into my previous values, beliefs and dreams.  When it didn't, I felt ashamed, convinced it was my own weakness getting in the way of feeling aligned and motivated again.  My inner voice was like a broken record: "I’m not a good enough mom, I'm not a good enough employee, I'm not enough." 

After six months at work, a colleague encouraged me to do a values assessment, and it soon became apparent that my values and my identity had dramatically shifted.  I liken it to this; you know those pre-pregnancy jeans…and how you try desperately to fit back in them?  I was trying so hard to fit into my pre-mom soul, but I just didn't fit.  Once I gave myself permission to let go of my previous values and accept what was true for me now as a mom, parts of my life slowly felt like a fit again.  

Not long after my son was born, I started to feel out of alignment again.  Although the mothering part was a bit easier, the professional part of my identity continued to crumble.  My first post-partum experience had been a great teacher, so I started seeking...for what I didn’t yet know.  I began meditating, committed to a prayer practice and started listening to what God and The Universe had in store for me.  One day, in March 2018, I heard loud and clear the call to shift my career into serving women and moms.  A few months later I was asked to create and lead a program for women returning to the workforce after a career break of three or more years.  We called it a "returnship" and I thought: “Yes, this is it!”. 

Everything about my job was perfect.  It was aligned to where I was feeling called, I had a great boss, good pay and benefits with lots of flexibility.  And yet, I didn’t feel any improvement in my overall well-being, in fact, I started to feel worse about myself and my life.  I despised going to work, my anxiety became a full-fledged health problem and waking up Monday morning was the worst part of the week.  I was an empty sack by the end of each day with nothing left for my family.  How could this be happening when, on paper, it seemed like everything made sense?

Fortunately, inspiration soon arrived as I got to witness the journeys of the women I hired into the Returnship program.  They were turning their lives upside down and taking great risks to pursue fulfillment, not just as moms, not just as employees, but as whole people.  I walked alongside them as they struggled to find their confidence, their interests and an integration between work and home-life.  Not only was I inspired, I also became acutely aware of how much these women could benefit from working with a coach, and that's when I felt my spark.

So, I became a return to work coach, and I can honestly say I've never felt more aligned in my life.  For the first time ever, I truly can't wait to work every day.  Even better, I have more energy at the end of the day than when I started, meaning I am a whole, fulfilled, person for my family; the best version of me. 

We may not have the same story, but I know what it's like to feel alone, ashamed and with more questions than answers.  I know what it's like to beat myself up for not achieving some version of someone's expectations for my life.  I know what it's like to love my kids with every cell in my body…and still somehow yearn for more.   I also know what it's like to uncover my dreams and go for it, finding more fulfillment than I thought possible. 

If this resonates with you, if you want to uncover your dreams, use your gifts and feel fulfilled, let's get started.  The World is waiting. 

Coaching with me


  • Clarity of purpose

  • Plan to find meaningful work

  • Smooth and intentional transition from Stay At Home Mom to Working Mom 


I tap into your inner wisdom and knowledge by asking powerful, thought provoking questions and at all times, letting your hopes and dreams lead each session.  I will encourage you to listen to your head, your heart and your gut and support your path forward in a judgement-free, shame-free zone.  



Return To Work Coaching

Making the transition from Stay At Home Mom to Working Mom is full of ups and downs.  As challenge arise, both large and small, we will work together so you can intentionally move through them resulting in being the best employee and mom you can be - without compromising your well being.  Because of the trust we will build, you will find a safe space to gain clarity and purpose and action.  


From Kids to Calling

You're yearning for something else but you're not sure where to start.  Over the course of 8 weeks we will work together to uncover your dreams and create a detailed plan to pursue meaningful work.  


Purpose Primer

As you've nurtured your family, you've poured your heart and soul into them.  While your devotion was a gift to your children, you may have lost sight of yourself along the way.  The purpose primer helps you to reconnect with who you are at your core, and becoming aware of how the person you are today may be different than the woman you knew before having children.  This is a great place to start, especially if you are not quite ready to jump back into work.

Experience, Certifications and Training

  • MBA with focus in Emotional Intelligence
  • Whole Person Certified Coach

For over ten years I successfully led recruiting and talent development programs for The Boeing Company.  I helped high potential employees at every stage of the pipeline develop themselves and progress towards their professional goals.  I also started the company's first ever return to work recruiting and development program.  In this role I advocated for women returning to the workplace and saw first hand the triumphs and challenges inherent in the transition from Stay At Home Mom to Working Mom.  

Witnessing the progress of these amazing women inspired me to follow my own heart and move into coaching.  My personal transition has helped me to see that when I intentionally pursue meaningful work, I am more fulfilled.  The fulfillment I get from my job spills over into all other aspects of my life and allows me to be an even better mother and partner and community member.
