RESUME

 
Friendship
Coach

I'm a certified friendship coach.

Yep-- it's a thing.

 

As a certified women's coach, I focus primarily on female friendship and communication. I conduct my own surveys, create research-based strategies, and teach women how to have better platonic relationships with one another.

 

Out of my love for all things female friendship, I founded Friend Forward  a digital community that provides coaching, research articles, and connection events for women looking to create and maintain true friendships.

It's more than feel-good content; it's legitimately changing women's lives. 

 

UPDATE:

I recently signed a book deal with Hachette to write a book that helps women navigate some of their most common friendship conflicts. The book will be available in bookstores near you in early 2024!
