There is life after the kids grow up. Find your place!

Imagine you are in that job where you feel appreciated, where the fact that you are a mom and took time off is valued, where your boss recognizes and rewards your contributions. You’ll always be a great mom, but you’re also investing in you and your future…role modeling flexibility and resilience to your kids, earning some extra money, and feeling like you’re making a difference in what you know matters in the world. Maybe you don’t want to work, but you want to be expanding your impact. Or you might be in a life transition where you need to get a job to meet your financial goals. But you have no idea where to start.

That doesn’t have to be a dream. You can make that happen in your life. Now. You don’t have to stay stuck, wondering what you will do now that your kids have lives of their own. There is more. You can find meaningful work.

I’m the Back to Work Coach helping women relaunch after a career pause, and figure out their next step towards purpose and fulfillment. I love helping women discover their own dash of “secret sauce”: how they are uniquely wired and where they can use their strengths and skills for satisfaction and success. 


I’ve worked long enough to know that what you do matters.  You’re at a point in life where you want to do something that you are passionate, something where you can grow, and where you feel you are making a difference.  You’ve spent years taking care of your family, volunteering, and serving others.  

It’s hard to figure out what we want to do as so many things have changed with having kids…including our sense of who we are, what we’re good at, what we want to do, and what kind of hours we want to work. We can believe our purpose is gone. It’s not. We can think we don’t have much to offer the world outside of being a mother. You matter and what you do matters. You are far more than your one role as a mother, no matter how satisfying that is.

My “5 to Thrive” process can help you find meaningful work and get past that “there must be more to life” feeling, whether you want a paycheck or not. We’ll get you moving forward to what you want to do.  

  • Look out – What impact do you want to make in your world? What do you need to happen in this next step? Clarify your vision.
  • Look In  – What are your strengths and skills? What’s on your heart? Understand and believe in your value and what you can do. Identify options.
  • Clear It Out  – What’s holding you back? Uncover and clear away those obstacles. Sometimes, it starts with what you believe about yourself.
  • Try It Out – What are ways you can try this out? Determine bite-size ways to decide among lots of options. 
  • Stand Out – How do you write your resume, interview, and land that next role? Learn how to navigate the current job market for employment and enjoyment.

I look forward to coaching, guiding and encouraging you at every step in your journey! Don’t stay stuck and keep feeling adrift without purpose. Contact me, and get going to your meaningful work!
