About the Episode

Welcome back to the Shamelessly Ambitious Podcast. Today’s episode is an interview with my husband and I am so excited to share it with you all! We recently celebrated 8 years of marriage, 12 and a half years together in total, and some major business & life milestones. 

If you’ve been hanging out here – you’ve heard that these celebrations don’t come without their fair share of hardships, as well. Jake and I are sitting down to recap everything we’ve been through together and give you our take on what it means to be both ambitious and devoted in our relationship. 

We’re talking about all the juicy stuff: what it’s been like being married to me, how parenting does NOT come naturally to either of us, how we handle guilt and judgment from others to ultimately put our relationship first, and so much more. I want to get into it shamelessly, have the conversations that more people ought to be having, and maybe spark conversations between you and your partner as well. 

So without further ado, tune in and meet my husband: Jake. We’re so excited to have you here!

I am the definition of duality—I swear like a sailor and break rules like it’s my job, but I also hold incredible space for my clients and work my ass off to help them achieve the success they’re after (but faster).

My background in counseling and my experience founding three multi-6-figure businesses gives me a unique perspective on what it means to show up and serve as an ethical and successful CEO. Leaning on my experiences, along with the experiences of the hundreds of women I’ve been honored to work with, I offer founders a psych-backed and human-first approach to scaling their legacies—both in and out of the office. 

I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to anything, but especially business. Because at the foundation of any profitable, sustainable, ethically sound business is one thing: humans being humans. And to do anything without first considering the human behind the action (i.e., with intention and vulnerability) is to remove our most powerful predictor of success—ourselves.

Around here, you’ll find a personalized and multidimensional client experience paired with a few tastefully dropped fucks. You’ll also find a new way of being in business that’s sustainable, ethical, and built around your life (not the other way around).
