And just a bit more background…
Despite achieving financial success, I was missing a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction from my work. I was on the lookout for a new path for several years. Then someone suggested I consider coaching. The more I learned, the more I realized that helping people was my true passion.
Prior to coaching, I served successfully in a variety of professional and entrepreneurial roles (attorney, financial analyst, trader, business executive/partner, private investor) and fields (real estate development, financial markets, alternative investments, wealth management, direct private investments). I did this in family businesses, with growing private businesses, and as a sole proprietor. The common threads were technical competence, good judgment, integrity, and strong people skills.
I earned an MBA from Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management, a JD from University of Illinois College of Law, and a BS in Finance from University of Illinois. I live in Chicago and coach clients in person throughout the Chicago metropolitan area and more distant clients via Skype.
