Writing

One of the best ways to get to know someone is through their writing.

We write about things we care about, so our publications become a portrait of our values. Before becoming a full-time coach, I was in graduate school studying rooftop solar politics and advocating for climate justice. I now support purpose-driven people to score their big goals, while pursuing my own passion for adventuring in the mountains.

My writing reflects my evolving vision for my life – what is your vision for yours? I’d love to support you to see it clearly in a free discovery session.
