I am on a never-ending, super passionate mission to do away with the all too common and unfair notion that when women in midlife experience a major shift in what gives us a sense of identity and purpose and what meets our need for a sense of connection and value, it is somehow a 'crisis' that we brought onto ourselves. That it is somehow a flaw within us. That we should have done something differently. That we should keep our confusion, fear and discontentment to ourselves and 'get better' on our own.
Nope. Not true. Gotta stop now.
It's unnerving. It's confusing. It can feel like being 'lost in transition' when we are in that uncomfortable space between who we have been for so long and who we are becoming. But, it's also natural and open the door to a remarkable next chapter filled with joy, meaning and fulfillment.
After spending spending almost 20 years advising and raising millions of dollars for nonprofit organizations and charitable foundations as a partner in a management consulting firm, I decided it was time to do whatever I can to change the public perception and conversation when it comes to midlife 'growth spurts', as I call them, and to help women find and capitalize on the growth and opportunity that comes from transitional moments in the middle of our lives.
Over the years, I've helped thousands of women - through individual and group coaching, online courses, speaking and writing - rediscover themselves and define, design and take action on what will give them a sense of joy, meaning, and fulfillment in their remarkable next chapter.
