I help professional women successfully navigate DIVORCE … by stepping into LEADERSHIP and using it as a springboard for POSITIVE CHANGE.
Divorce is CHAOS … BIG CHANGE … THE SCARY UNKNOWN. I know. I’ve been there. And now, being on the other side of it it, I know it was the best, and most challenging, thing I’ve ever done. And from this place, I can tell you that the most important thing you can do to successfully navigate divorce is to be a leader in this process … and not be a victim of it. Achieving true mastery over yourself and your actions … regardless of the chaos around you … will help you make decisions you are proud of (versus ones you will regret), achieve better outcomes and reinvent your life and career.
Based in the United States, I have coached individuals all over the world including the United States, Canada, Spain, Kenya, Colombia, Singapore and the UK. I earned an MA from Tufts University and am a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) through the International Coaching Federation, a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) through the Coaches Training Institute, a certified Mediator in Massachusetts AND certified in Parentology (whew!). I also hosted a radio show – Divorce Sucks: A Smart Girls’ Guide To Doing It Better – on VoiceAmerica in early 2015.
My professional background includes 20+ years in management, leadership, strategy and business development serving the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology industries, in specific roles such as Vice President Business Development, Consultant and Advisory Board member. I’m also a writer, with articles published in Huffington Post, Fox News Magazine, Parents Magazine, Thought Catalog, Care2, Working Mother Magazine, Babble, Unlocked Magazine and Solo Parent Magazine.
I am also a single mom with two young children and 2 crotchety cats. My divorce process took almost 2 years and a huge bite out of my bank account. I worked all those years in Corporate America … climbing the corporate ladder … only to lose half of my retirement money AND pay my ex-child support (even with 50/50 custody). I learned the hard way how rigged the system is for professional women. Yet, it also brought me here … to my new life … doing what I love. And the lessons I learned about life … and about myself … resulted in a fantastic, committed relationship with the man of my dreams (whom I intentionally never plan to marry). My divorce also changed how I live, work and play. I live better, with a dedicated focus on balance and health. I work smarter, with perspective and purpose. And I play harder, with joy and a huge amount of gratitude.
I created MoxieLife with 4 key cornerstones or beliefs:
The bumps in the road aren’t meant to stop you. They’re there to help you learn something you need … to get to the next step. And they’re there to help you appreciate that you are walking (running, jumping, leaping) on your the path at all.
