I worked as a professional chef for many years working in top flight establishments in New York and San Francisco. I transitioned out in 2004 and began by growing my skills and experience in mediation, facilitation, public speaking and training and development. In 2005 I became involved with the Life's Work Center of SF and eventually became their lead facilitator and Program Director. In 2009 I made the leap to start my own business, Change With Purpose Coaching and Training Services. I now work with groups and individuals who are ready to claim more from their life. I champion these people in defining a life direction and then help them do the heavy lifting of working through the blocks that hold them back. It is powerful and humbling work. My website is www.dowlingstream.com
I am self employed
My intention is to continue to grow my craft of leading, speaking and facilitating change. I also want to be part of an active, can-do community that supports, uplifts and creates. This community also allows me the opportunity to support others in undertaking change which is a life purpose of mine.
In my former career as an executive sous chef of 3-star kitchens, I would call out the best in my staff. We produced high quality with high efficiency. Now as a life coach I champion groups and individuals in going for the life that calls to them.
