Fast forward 10 years and here’s what I know for sure:
No more excuses.
Your priority now needs to be YOU.
No need to reinvent the wheel.
Get the help and guidance you deserve.
Don’t go it alone.
The journey is easier and more enjoyable in community.
I had to dive deep into some really hard and scary places to become the woman I am today. I got the support I needed and it changed my life. This is why I do what I do now—and why I’ve cultivated THRIVE, a coaching community for women 40+.
As someone who has experienced this challenging midlife transition firsthand, and is trained and certified as a life coach, I believe I am uniquely equipped to help women design their next chapter with more ease and confidence.
With THRIVE, I have curated the ideal safe and supportive space I wish I’d had when I felt lost and alone.
Today, I am a life coach, speaker, writer, and community builder.
Certified Life Coach (CPC), trained through iPEC’s Accredited Coach Training Program.
Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner (ELI-MP)
Member, International Coach Federation
MBA, Washington University in St. Louis
BA, Duke University
I jumped out of a plane at age 50.
I have a huge sweet tooth and indulge in chocolate daily.
My name, Hélène, is French for Helene (I’m an American raised in Paris). To pronounce it, you say the two letters L and N in a row: L-N, with the emphasis on the N.
I continue to use paper calendars (I have them dating back to 1997!) and am a big fan of those by Letts of London.
I am an avid reader of nonfiction, particularly psychology and behavioral economics.
I was once mistaken for a “motivational dancer” at a friend’s 50th Birthday party—I do love to dance!
