I’m a professional photographer and filmmaker with more than a dozen years of experience working in documentary, nonprofit, and portrait photography. In 2010, I lived through an earthquake and it changed the way I looked at media, development, and disaster response. I primarily work with nonprofits, B corps, and social enterprises to find and share their stories through media. My goal is to craft emotional visual stories for specific audiences to create positive change in the world while giving dignity to those who open their lives to my lens. I love creating stories that deserve to be told and living a life of adventure with my husband and our furry Zambian cat. I am currently based in Johannesburg, South Africa. You can also follow my work at NGOStorytelling.com, a site created to inspire and inform humanitarian storytellers around the world.
I offer life coaching to individuals facing the ups and downs of transition. These services primarily include one-on-one support sessions via Skype or phone, email follow-up and periodic check-ins. I provide insight into the culture shock experience, support you in determining your goals in relation to your transition, help you better understand what may be holding you back from experiencing the joys of living around the world and, most importantly, I provide a safe and non-judgmental space for you to truly be yourself during the process of realizing a life centered around the things you hold most dear. A significant portion of my coaching practice is based on the concepts of mindfulness. To that end, much of my work is dedicated to helping my clients build a better foundation for understanding their thought and emotional patterns, raising awareness of and insight around those patterns and developing strategies for using that awareness for a more fulfilling daily life.
More About My Professional Background: I have been a life coach since I launched World Tree Coaching in November 2013. I have also been a clinical social worker (with over 4,000 hours of direct practice experience), a teacher, trainer and program coordinator. I currently hold the International Coach Federation's Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential. I have a Masters Degree in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin with a focus on Clinical Social Work and Conflict Resolution. I have worked with individuals who are experiencing the challenges of cross-cultural adaptation for over 10 years. My client base is broad and diverse. I have worked with immigrants to the United States, students, trauma survivors, serial expats and Peace Corps volunteers.
