My Story

I am an example of how wealth can be a gift in one’s life. My relationship with wealth is both dynamic and integrated. I am grateful for the ways in which my resources have facilitated my ability to live in alignment with my personal values, and use my strengths to have an impact in the world.

Three of the key ingredients of my wellbeing in the context of wealth are: 1) My parents always saw me for who I was and who I wanted to be, and they nurtured it, 2) My parents have always been fully engaged in our relationship, and 3) Outside support was encouraged and proactively pursued. There are more ingredients, of course, but these are the most important.

 

Professional Background

With these relational dynamics as my foundation, I launched into my career with passion and purpose. I received my first Master’s degree in international law and diplomacy from The Fletcher School at Tufts University. This built upon my early career in international development and humanitarian aid, for which I spent most of my time in African countries. While at Fletcher, I met my amazing husband, Jeremy, and off we went to the Dominican Republic for his work with the United Nations.

I was always a psychologist at heart, and finally followed that calling with my Master’s and then Doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Denver. I began working with families and organizations alongside my clinical focus on trauma. I always crave creativity and innovation. I knew that the combination of my personal and professional expertise in the wealth landscape could make a difference for others. Thus, I launched Northbound Coaching.

My husband and I are both entrepreneurs raising our two incredible, wild, and sweet children in Evergreen, Colorado.

We are a family helping other families realize their full potential and positively impact the world one step at a time.
