Hi there~ I’m Viki.

My mission is to connect individuals, leaders and teams to live their best life ever. I do this by using evidence based coaching models which leverage neuroscience and action-oriented communication.

I am certified through ICF programs: Coach U; Wellcoaches School of Coaching and the American Lifestyle College of Medicine. And I am a certified fitness professional, mindful awareness teacher/ facilitator, health coach, and Yoga; RYT-200 and have been in the health and wellness industry for nearly 20 years.

My clients come from various backgrounds and life stages; young adults delving into first careers, overwhelmed stressed out professionals, stay at home parents looking for purpose and clarity – to leaders facing the empty nest, solo-aging, or portfolio-life stage. The uniqueness of each story keeps us moving forward to seek new opportunities~ common threads and the need for meaning, purpose, flow, calm and clarity in life keeps us connected.

Life happens for us, not to us.

Life is complex and maintaining balance is challenging.  Managing accelerating changes is hard and requires new tools, support and methods that keep our mental, emotional and physical health buoyant in turbulent times. 

You do not have to do this alone.

Ready to take the first step into living your most deserved life?


    You helped me find my own motivation, and then helped me find and fortify your own inner resources. You are kind, diplomatic, compassionate, and fun to be with, which makes our sessions an enjoyable way to make positive changes in my life.  Having you as my coach is proving to be the most efficient and effective way to move forward, and I’m so fortunate to have found you. EZ

    You are a force for positive change in the world and in my life.  You helped me tap into my own insights and strengths to create a new of way of being for me (my wife thanks you!) You really did “meet me where I was” and quickly discerned how to help me discover where I wanted to be. I loved closing the gap in my journey with you supporting me every step of the way. I move better than I have in years and my family says I am like a new man. SB

    I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate having you as my support during my journey to rediscover my life path after a dramatic career change. Your ability to listen and allow me to generate and process new thoughts and ideas empowered m to find my voice. I feel a new sense of confidence in my role and personal life, with a new sense of purpose and clarity. I’m happy to say that my overall wellness has improved as a result of our sessions! Your kind and patient manner allowed me to rediscover who I am at my core – I have transformed into the ‘butterfly’!  

    Partnering with Viki on finding clarity and outlining the next steps of my life-journey has been so rewarding. During our coaching sessions, she asks me thought-provoking questions and listens at a level of empathy that makes me feel seen and supported. Viki is supportive, direct, and challenges me to reflect and think on a deeper level that is usually hard to do in regular day-to-day conversation. She’s intuitive and serves me by allowing me to lead our sessions based on what I need most in that moment. I’ve never felt any judgment from her and my life has truly improved through our sessions; I continue to grow in ways I don’t think are possible. Viki is such a genuine, relatable, fun and warm soul who has helped me find more purpose, meaning, fulfillment, and clarity in my life. I feel so grateful that I get to experience this journey with Viki by my side!
