Hi. I'm Sarah!
I grew up in a small market town in Wales, UK and began working as a nursing assistant at age 18. I knew healthcare was my path and a career I really desired. I became a nurse, working in the field of nephrology, and fell in love with both patient interaction and working with other nurses. I eventually joined a large dialysis organization as a Training and Education Manager and transitioned from the UK to the USA. My career progressed and after several promotions, I became Vice President of Education for a large dialysis organization.
Healthcare tends to be a stressful career at times with nurses working long hours and feeling fatigue and burnout. I witnessed too many great nurses leave the profession and I knew I wanted to act in a support role and help these nurses grow and love their jobs, while at the same time enjoying their personal life.
But first, I had to figure out how to do that in my own life! I was constantly running on low energy after arriving home from business trips and when my young son at the time wanted to play, I wanted to rest. I had a sudden, and scary, realization that unless I did something different, this was going to be my life for the foreseeable future.
I sought out a career coach and developed a love for coaching. I was amazed by how my coach helped me discover who I was, uncover strengths I never knew I had and helped me figure out my own pathway to success. It was refreshing and empowering. After my coaching experience, I can confidently say that I have a great salary, a job I love with good hours, my relationships are better at work and at home and I have a social life. I really can have it all and so can you.
I was given the opportunity to utilize my coaching skills and demonstrate the benefits of coaching for Clinical Managers (RN Leaders). And I still coach in this capacity today!
Now, I’ve added a level to my coaching, to help women in all professions work on their wellness, relationships and work/life balance.
A little about me: We made the move to Texas in 2002 and I became a US Citizen in 2014. I’m married and have a 10-year son; yes I’m a soccer mom! We have a Chiweenie puppy and I work full-time, so I understand the busy that goes along with ‘mom’ life. We love the outdoors: hiking, cycling, skiing and one of my passions is running a monthly circle meeting for Plaid for Women, an organization that supports women in all aspects of life.
Let's chat to see how I can help you find balance in your life.
