aries sun, aries rising
with a libra moon.
and a coach for wild women.
As a performer living in NYC, I became very intimate with the hardships of having a deep, yearning desire to practice my art full-time, master technique, and the unbearable frustration at not having the tools to overcome self-sabotage, a mean inner dialogue, anxiety - woof - all the things. I got stuck.
So I took a desk job to feel safe, but instead I felt stifled, stuck and suffocated, drifting without a sense of purpose.
I graduated the University of CT with a BFA in Acting and a dream to be working performer in NYC, but with no realistic plan on how to do it.
I moved to the Berkshires. I had already done a lot of theater work there, so it made sense. I joined a local burlesque ensemble...and then, I was sat down by a white male authority figure "looking out" for me, who called a stripper and warned of the bad reputation I was creating. I took off for NYC where small town politics wouldn't hold me back.
Let's sum this year up as...childhood trauma brain making weird decisions in a big city.
Broke my computer in the dumbest way. It was going to bankrupt me, c'est la vie. Sitting & waiting at an Apple repair store, the man next to me is a former monk and becomes my life long spiritual teacher.
Got my sh*t back together again. Weekly acting class. Auditions. Yoga teacher certification. Booking burlesque shows & making new acts.
And quit my job in private equity to audition part-time, and be a romantic matchmaker part-time.
YIKES. The pandemic was easier than these couple years. My sister beat breast cancer though. Hell yeah! I recommitted to my healing path. Got a life coach.
Started listening to my intuition again.
After 600 hours of studying & coaching observation, I launched my private 1:1 coaching practice. Developed 1:1 into a brand, To Feel Sparks, and launched the membership component The Matchbox.
Serving hundreds of women via the Matchbox Membership & a roster of 1:1 VIP clients who are so badass, I literally have chills.
Yes I'm writing this in 2022, but this is the track.
You get me.
I created To Feel Sparks to serve artists struggling to enjoy their life while pursuing their dreams. The world needs our artists to thrive. Abundant artists improve our communities, change political policies, and open the world to more love and acceptance. Plus you make us laugh when shit is dark which may be the most important work of all.
That's why I do what I do.
