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
