MY newsletter: Doing the (home)work

My monthly coaching newsletter is delivered to hundreds of inboxes the first Tuesday of each month with insights, reflections, tools, and homework to move beyond inspiration and take action. If you’re curious about what’s inside, view the letter archive and subscribe.


A home for personal essays, including my experiences with grief and loss, divorce, and transitions. I share about reinventing my career and life after my marriage to my business partner ended, reflections on growing up motherless, and how we can thrive on the other side of pain and hardship. Follow along on Medium.

As cofounder and former Editor in Chief of The Great Discontent magazine, I spent 6 years interviewing 250+ creators for the web, print, live events, and podcast. Conversations dove into the early years of creators’ lives, risks they’d taken along the way, influential relationships, the never-ending search for creative satisfaction, and the role of legacy in their work. Read digital features from the web archive. Listen to the podcast in iTunes.
