Are you an accomplished woman leader,
who is struggling to get out of overwhelm 
and thrive again, with less stress?
Get Ready to Reclaim Your Life!
Stop feeling unfulfilled, mental tail-spinning, and questioning your life!
Start thriving - with intention, gusto and purpose at work and beyond - learn how to create the space to be more fulfilled, expand your capacity, and feel more joy.
Do you feel. . .

  1. Stressed or on the path to burnout from working more hours than what you think is sustainable?

  2. So exhausted by the time you get home that you have nothing left for your relationship, family, or YOU?

  3. Plagued by indecisiveness from living a life of compromise (at work or beyond)? 

  4. What many would consider successful and accomplished - yet you feel mentally drained, disconnected, or confused about why you aren't thriving?

  5. Longing to feel more connected and enthused again about work, life, or what used to matter to you.

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then…

You’re In Danger!

  • According to a national poll by NPR, in partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health, stress is the #1 cause of health problems – mental and physical.

  • Stress worsens or increases the risk of conditions like obesity, heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, depression, gastrointestinal problems, and asthma.

  • According to research by the Eliza Corp. and the Altarum Institute, your job is the 2nd biggest cause of stress, right behind the death of a spouse. Especially when you’re working 12 hours a day and sacrificing your life to keep up.

  • According to Gallup the average American employed full time works 47 hours per week, which equates to nearly six days a week. Nearly four in 10 workers report logging 50+ hours on the job. Americans also receive fewer vacation days than their peers elsewhere - only 15 days a year compared to the 28 days Europeans get.

  • People with demanding jobs and few rewards have an 80% higher risk of developing depression within a few years than people with more fulfilling work.

But what if I told you: It doesn’t have to be this way.

Or read on. . .

You can reclaim your life.

You can continue to succeed while also having time for the people and activities you love.

You can feel energized again and continue to make an impact, doing great work WITHOUT SACRIFICING YOUR LIFE!


Quit working harder, commit to a new PAUSE mindset, and work smarter!

Nothing Short of Miracles - launched a new project and secured $100k investment



"Working with Rachael, I have achieved nothing short of miracles! Rachael coached me to regain my confidence after a tough career year. She holds space for my mission and her emotional based coaching helps me explore and redefine old ways of thinking. In 3 months, I've launched a new project for women and girls and secured a $100k investment plus executive sponsors. I can't wait to see what the next 3 months bring."

-ZN, "Thriver"

Stop feeling unfulfilled, mental tailspinning, and questioning your life!

STOP Going through the motions

STOP pretending you are ok

STOP pretending you have it all together

It just leaves you feeling mentally, physically, and emotionally depleted.

I was there too.

Start thriving - with intention, gusto and purpose at work and beyond - and learn how to slow down to serve you better.


This course is designed to teach you the life-changing skills for a powerful and proven method to shift your mindset and intentionally change your behavior. You will learn how to step into living what you dreamed of having (or getting back).

In the past 7 years I've seen too many people get sick and burnt out in the prime of their life. I study what it means to be an emotionally intelligent leader, went to school on how to live a full, engaged and thriving life and even became a transformational coach committed to share what I learned so you and others could learn from my mistakes.


If I had known then what I train others on today in this course, I know my life would have changed for the better...long before I burned out.


Burnt out and giving up as they hit their forties or fifties because they think there’s no other way. It’s just the way life is.

This is a MYTH!

You have the opportunity to draw a line in the sand and say "enough is enough!".

You can learn how to be more aligned, to reclaim your life and thrive again!

An amazing coach; helped bring me clarity

There are a fixed number of seats to this program. What are you waiting for?


One Year to Reclaim Your Life


In the Thrive, Lead and Succeed virtual coaching program, we leverage the power of group dynamics and customized 1:1 coaching to maximize learning.

As an expert in pausing, emotional intelligence and applied neuroscience I will show you how to develop the skills to be more productive while having a better quality of life and ways to thrive than you thought possible.

Why one year?

  • Change happens over time. For long lasting habits to form or change, on average it takes at a minimum between 6-12 months for this to occur. 3-6 months isn't quite enough time for long term change. Hence this course is 12 months, with one module a month so you can maximize your learning and application of what you're learning for sustainable and noticeable change. In the big scheme of things, it's not that long. The best results I've experienced on average require at least a year of coaching and practicing applying new skills while orienting to new thoughts, beliefs and behavior. 

  • If you're looking for a quick fix, this program is not for you. If you're committed to long term change, now we're talking.

  • Don't forget, this is your life we're talking about. Commit to you, and congratulate yourself for taking the next step and joining a course designed to help you thrive at work.

You'll understand the beliefs behind your fears and step into your reclaimed self in a deeper, aligned way that honors your authentic self.

  • How to get out of flight or flight mode when feeling overwhelmed.

  • Creating boundaries for you (and your team) to thrive while feeling more connected to what you're doing - no matter what you do.

  • Avoid or get out of drama at work that slows you down or isn't helpful.
