About me

I’m a Performance Enhancement Coach who believes taking the time to really know yourself is the secret to turning your passion into tangible results you care about.

I’ve spent 7 years as a management consultant working with leaders in boundary-pushing startups, international development, and environmental fields. Just one example: I lived in a tent in Kenya for a year helping an entrepreneur partner with National Geographic to develop sustainable ranching products that save lions and generate enormous ROIs for her customers. By teaching innovators like her how to clarify their team’s core mission and measure performance, I help get them to the level of cultural impact they dream of achieving.

Living in unfamiliar cultures and the remote wilderness has taught me to think nomadically—to continually assess the rules I carry like heavy baggage, dropping the ones that do not serve me, and carrying only those that will help me thrive. This approach has freed me from the crippling self-doubts and fears we sometimes face when stepping into life’s uncharted territories, giving me the bandwidth to do work that truly matters to me.

Now I apply the same approach I’ve used to streamline organizations around the world and the insights I’ve gained along the way to help other rule breakers open their perspective on ‘who’ they are and to release expectations of what their role ‘should’ be. By connecting with the most powerful versions of themselves, my clients develop the confidence to trust their intuition, judgment, and competence so they can make the impacts they were meant for.

Coaching with me

For entrepreneurs and their teams who see themselves as innovators and disruptors, there is no map to a final destination—only the next evolution. What fuels you as you push into the unknown: Clarity in who you are and confidence in your purpose? Or fear, anxiety and self-doubt?

If the second one sounds more familiar, don’t worry: I help rule-breaking entrepreneurs and their teams connect what they do with who they really want to be so they can focus on making the differences they’re passionate about.

My clients learn to trust their skills and instincts and develop heightened confidence so they can 1) know what they want, 2) be who they want to be, and 3) do what they want to do.

1) Cultivate fearlessness: Get in touch with a more powerful YOU and learn to articulate the unique vision and value you bring to the table.

2) Forge integrity: Clear the inner blocks that hold you back and consciously choose the way you want to see yourself and your world.

3) Create value: Create meaningful value by bringing the best version of YOU to everything you do—in work, life and relationships—not by fitting into someone else’s expectations.
I coach for you, the client. I don't come in with my own agenda, step-by-step program, or curriculum. We start from wherever you're at, and we go wherever you want. Everything, from the topics we cover to the assignments you'll get, is tailored to your specific situation and goals. That being said, I've taken the time to outline the stages many clients tend to go through at mnomadic(dot)com. If these resonate, then reach out!


Step 1: Get your bearings. The way forward takes some honesty. We’ll identify where you’re at, what is/is not working for you in your work (and life in general), and the real reasons why.

Step 2: Re-assess your resources. Next we’ll hone in on what makes you tick: your core values, what differences you want to see in the world, and how your work is connected to those.

Step 3: Check your direction. Based on your values and your goals—your mission—we’ll define what success looks like for you. You’ll be able to acknowledge the distance between where you are and where you want to go, and learn to view yourself with compassion and understanding instead of criticism and judgment.



Step 4: Clear the way. How we see ourselves and the world around us either limits or liberates what we can accomplish. In this step we focus on removing the blocks that hold you and your team back: ideas about what “should” be, others’ expectations, and habits that stand in your way.

Step 5: Decide how to be. What if you and your team allowed yourselves to forget mainstream expectations and to consciously make new rules for reaching your goals? In this step, instead of fear and old patterns leading you, you’ll have the clarity and confidence to design the way you want to show up, an action plan to get you there, and a framework for keeping you accountable.



Step 6: Do it. Walk your talk! Now that you’ve gotten insights into your vision and what success looks like to you, you’ll have the bandwidth to focus on making the differences that truly matter to you and your team—and to eliminate those things that distract and detract from your goals.

Step 7: Make it sustainable. At this point, you’ve changed the way you think about yourself and the world, and you’ve removed serious blocks to your success. We’ll work on a plan to help those changes take serious root and to get you moving towards your next level of evolution.


If you're seeking a deep investigation of your core values, perceived limitations, and ideal self so you can make the difference that really matters to YOU, this package is the one.

Experience, Certifications and Training

  • Masters Degree, Duke University
  • Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner
  • Certified Professional Coach
I've lived and worked in East Africa, Madagascar, Guatemala, and USA. I've climbed mountains, canoed the entire Mississippi River, lived in a van, tangled with lions and bears, and so much more---none of which should matter to you. The only thing pertinent to whatever you're going through is this: I am also striving to live 100% full out and create the company, life and legacy I've always dreamed about, and I am ABSOLUTELY committed to encouraging and championing you as you do the same.

Fee description

Fees: from $150 USD to $300 USD

Fees per session start at $300 and drop depending on the number of clients participating and/or the length of contract. I typically do at least 12 sessions with clients, because this seems to be the minimum amount of time most clients need to experience meaningful and lasting growth. Coaching is an investment. When you are able to commit to this investment, it demonstrates that you are ready and willing to do whatever it takes to get where you want to go.
