If you want to be the best version of yourself—someone who takes risks, makes their own rules, and goes after what they want—I'll help you do just that.

Since there is no one like you, we will work together to design a personalized program to meet your unique wants and needs. Using the process below, we will discover your desires and strengths, set meaningful goals, and develop a game plan that fits your definition of success.

I will pull from my varied experience and education in coaching, communications, personal development, art / design, and leadership to help you gain a deep understanding of who you are and how you can bring your true talents into every area of your life.

Beth Cook, Creative Business and Life Strategies

For over fifteen years I have worked with individuals and teams to create successful businesses and lives of all sorts.

I see the best in people and their endeavors—things they might not even see in themselves. For me, there is no greater joy than helping people dismantle roadblocks, boldly be their best selves, and get what they want out of life.

I’ve been on a few adventures myself...living in Florence and Moscow, earning multiple degrees, starting a dating events company, running my own PR business, teaching wine classes, mentoring youth, and taking up ice skating. To me, life at its best is full of curiosity and experimentation.

Every risk I’ve ever taken has been incredibly scary and exciting—and each one has paid off. I have learned how to design a personal and professional life I love. Now I want to help you do the same.
