What clients are saying
“May offers the perfect blend of spiritual and practical life and career advice. She understands where I am coming from and knows the right approach to help me reverse my negative thoughts. She not only helped me progress in my career, but she also helped me get into the right mindset to break free of burnout, anxiety, and bad vibes. She changed the way I think, how I feel, and how I interact with others on a daily basis, at work and in my personal life. My favorite compliment from others over the past few months has been when people voice how calm and collected I am, when previously I was known to be frantic and a worrier. I truly believe in the magic that is May and recommend her to my friends who are looking for positive change in their life.”

1:1 Leadership Coaching
Want the ultimate thought partner? Invest in private coaching 1:1 with May to up-level, transform, and move you into action.
Change takes time, courage, and support. Oftentimes, there's a change we're toying with--whether in our careers or personal lives--that brings up so many daunting emotions, we keep putting it on the back burner and fall back on what makes us comfortable--even if it makes us miserable.
Maybe you want to make a career change, feel more in control of your life, spend less time on work and more time on your personal life. Maybe you know there's something more for you and you want help stepping into that new life.
You and May will work together to create an entirely different world from the inside out. Reprogramming your subconscious and identify the steps to bring your change to life. No more thinking about doing something. May's 1:1 coaching is personalized for you.
