About me
I work with international development professionals who want to have high-impact careers they love (while still having a life outside of work). My particular focus at the moment is helping people figure out "what's next?" in their careers and their lives.

Having worked in international development and management consulting, I now work as a certified executive coach and career coach. I've coached clients working for such organizations as the Asian Development Bank, the World Bank, the US Agency for International Development, Peace Corps, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, and The Asia Foundation.

A Third Culture Kid who grew up in the US, Mexico, and Costa Rica, I am now the mom of two girls, and have been based in the Philippines since 2004. I blog at http://developmentcrossroads.com/
