Hi! I'm Morgan, a respected corporate leader, speaker and certified master life coach. I specialize in helping high-achieving professional women who feel trapped in their success, reclaim their confidence and start making empowered choices. With a passion for motherhood and mothers in the workforce, I believe that working makes me a better mom, and being a mom makes me a better leader.
I have a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Whittier College and spent the last 17 years as a leader in the clinical research industry. In that time, I was promoted through the ranks from Research Associate to Director - leading global teams and multi-million-dollar clinical trials.
As a mother of two children in elementary school, I have missed important meetings with sick kids at home; missed school events for big presentations; lived through loss; and celebrated every little milestone.
When I'm not working with clients, you can find me enjoying a run, snuggling on the couch with my family for a movie night, or watching reruns of the original Beverly Hills 90210.
Can you remember the moment you started believing that you didn’t have a choice? The moment that your own basic needs and wants took a backseat because you had to do something else? I can identify several of those pivotal moments in my adult life.
After 16 years as a leader in the clinical research industry, and being on the edge of burnout many times, I had finally hit my breaking point. I felt trapped. I was in my closet crying, and I needed help. I searched for the 24-hour number for our Employee Assistance Program, and made the call I wished I had made years before. I worked with a counselor and a coach, and through that work, I started to remember that I had choices. I found my empowered voice, and my world opened up. That's when I decided to make a change.
I shifted my focus from how to make my current career work for me to how to start a business. I worked with a business coach and completed an intensive coaching certification program to create This Empowered Mom Coaching and Consulting. Today, I combine my education and training, experience in the corporate sector, and my personal journey to provide life-changing strategies to women, like you, who feel trapped in their success.
Committing to finding your empowered voice again is just that: a commitment. It's going to take heart, soul, and curiosity. My commitment is to hold space for you, listen to you, help you discover a new perspective, identify patterns and beliefs that may be holding you back, and provide you with accountability, understanding and support.
