We all have blocks that hold us back from growing and reaching our true potential.  In my case, my block was a combination of fear, and not quite feeling "enough."  I know it sounds so cliche, but that's just what it boiled down to for me.


I attended  NYU, and received my BS in marketing. Soon after, I married the love of my life, and two years later, we started a family.  I worked for about three years after college, but then I moved on to becoming a full time mom.  

As the years passed, I dreaded more and more being asked the question “What do you do for a living?”  I actually felt "ashamed" of the fact that I didn’t have a full-time, paying career.  While I always knew that I worked hard as a mother and as a member and leader in my community, I still felt like I was “less than” mothers who earned a living through working. 


Eventually, I started on a journey of self discovery that taught me to love and appreciate myself where I’m at, while moving forward to where I’m going. In other words, I learned that loving yourself and wanting to be better doesn't have to be mutually exclusive. It was through this powerful and life altering shift, that I decided to partner with others to empower them to live a happier and more fulfilled life.  

Once I decided to take the plunge and train to become a certified coach, I enrolled in iPEC, a school recognized by the International Coaching Federation.  I learned even more about myself during my journey there.  In addition to earning the title CPC (Certified Professional Coach,) I started another business combining my marketing and coaching skills called Coach Marketing Solutions. (Feel free to check out the website here!) I have so enjoyed the joining these ​two passions of mine.  I'm grateful for journey that I have traveled on to reach where I am today, and I would love to help you along your journey to find your happiness as well.


Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery.

Today is a gift.

That's why they call it the Present.

It's my mission as a coach to help others, like yourself, to tap into what’s already inside in order to start living fully, all the while improving relationships with others along the way.  You will be amazed to see how nurturing your own growth and understanding of yourself will impact not only yourself but your loved ones as well. 


Through working with me, you will have the opportunity to organize your thoughts, dreams and aspirations and turn them into a realty.  As an added bonus, you will also notice a reduction in the stress you experience on a day to day basis.  Who wouldn't want less stress? This is the path I have chosen, because nothing gratifies me more than helping people find more joy in their lives.

I'd be delighted to hear from you and have the opportunity to show you how through coaching, we can start to co-create a more satisfying, fulfilling life for you!

Group Coaching

Do you also have a list of personal development books waiting to be read, but can’t seem to find the time or the motivation? This group will provide you an opportunity to learn some great lessons inspired by amazing books, and discuss how these lessons apply to your own life.


Join me and your new friends for regular zoom calls where we get to share, listen and laugh in a judgement free zone.  I will start the call by reading a short quote, paragraph or passage, and then we'll discuss.  We will also have time to address challenges and celebrate wins that any of our group members may be experiencing.


**Side effects may include personal growth, feeling elevated, and making positive changes in your life as well as in your household.


We will be meeting roughly every other week for four months. I know that this is going to be a fantastic experience, and I hope that you will join me. Reach out to me if you're interested!

Joanna has a powerful coaching presence, at once compassionate and deeply connected to what it is to be human, as well as closely tuned in to intuition. My coaching experience with Joanna revealed to me valuable new insights. She supported this awareness with open-mindedness and lack of judgement, and supported me in looking at my options to move into action. I would highly recommend Joanna to anyone ready for change and looking for a coach to walk alongside a huge step forward into a more fulfilling life!

I've worked with a couple of coaches, and while each have brought something valuable to the table, Joanna brings a genuine and caring approach to the coaching relationship. She's patient, thoughtful and empathic. I appreciate that she keeps me on track, checks in with me to offer support in between sessions and holds me accountable for my commitments. I find her style professional and humorous. Critically, she's the only coach I've worked with where I've experienced sustainable results. I can't recommend Joanna enough.

I am a Certified Professional Coach, via the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), an International Coach Federation accredited Life Coaching Program, with over 400 hours of course-related work and hands-on training. The philosophy of the iPEC Coach Training program is based on Energy Leadership, which is rooted in seven distinct levels of energy.  The Core Energy Coaching™ process allows me to tap into the inner purpose and passion of a person, and combine that with an action-oriented plan to achieve extraordinary and sustainable results. The Core Energy Coaching™ process is a laser focused approach to getting at the root of where you are, and helping you move to the next level.


I am a certified Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner. The E.L.I. is an attitudinal assessment, which is based on an energy/action model. What does that mean, you ask? It measures your level of energy based on your attitude, or perception and perspective of your world. In other words, it will give you insight into how you show up in life, and how you react to stress. By working with me using the E.L.I., you can alter your attitude and perspective, make a shift in your consciousness, and increase your energy and levels of satisfaction in all aspects of your life. This may be purchased as a one time 90-minute debrief session, or as part of your complete coaching package.  Contact me today to schedule yours!
