Irene’s bio

I grew up in an Italian American household where the tea pot was on and people stopped by to talk with my mother about their lives.  This inspired me to help people in a deep way. I became a social worker and later a life and purpose coach.

I enjoy helping my business owners to achieve dramatic yet solid growth.  It’s exciting and rewarding.  They grow internally as they grow their companies.  I love seeing them relax and grow in their confidence as a leader.

When I help people find their calling and bring it into their work or personal life, it’s just wonderful!  Their eyes sparkle, they laugh more, and they have this incredible positive energy.

My clients say that I inspire them, but they inspire me too.  I feel blessed to be able to do work that I love!
