"Pete's wisdom, council, and perspective has challenged me, and has helped me be a lot more clear about what I want and need to do to continue to grow and improve as a leader, parent, and as a person."
From a young age, I’ve always valued the freedom, variety, and sense of adventure of being in the outdoors. Yet I felt a bit disconnected and not comfortable in my own skin, trying to figure out who I was, and what I was good at. I struggled.
At age 13, going to an overnight summer camp helped me discover the joy of backpacking, canoeing and unapologetically being myself. The Director of Summer Camp once said, “there’s no such thing as a bad kid, just a kid that makes bad choices.” For the first time, I felt at peace. I felt like I was in a safe container. I began to feel seen, heard, and valued for who I was. I felt empowered to take risks and make mistakes. I began to feel what it might be like to feel capable and thrive. I was home, and not afraid to be me!.
This newfound discovery helped me start on my own journey of commitment and contribution - to help other people be themselves. To feel seen, heard, and valued. And most of all, to feel that they truly mattered for who they were, are, and want to be!
Years later, as a camp director myself, there was nothing more exhilarating than seeing other kids and young adults discovering something about themselves during a long hike. Getting to the summit, and having an “aha” moment was transformative for them - seeing a new and expanded point of view.
These experiences have propelled me to do the work I do coaching and facilitating others. I believe that when you choose to step into your own capabilities, you can live the kind of life you really want.
My life’s purpose is to help you see yourself in a way that boosts your own journey to live a more rewarding life - and make new choices that will enable you to feel more curious, energized, hopeful, and fulfilled. I would be honored to be your coach and thought- partner to help you blaze many trails to your unique summit!
