About Sunny

Prior to becoming a career coach, writer and motivational speaker, I spent twenty years in the field of human resources. It offered everything I was seeking, an opportunity to be a talent scout, a compensation guru, and a consultant to management. During my corporate career, I worked for both Fortune 500 companies and start-ups in Silicon Valley.

Originally I hail from the mid-west. Upon graduation from Central Michigan University I fled the cold climate and found a place in the sun. Since then I have resided in both Florida and California.

Known as an incurable optimist and master change agent, I am passionate about writing. In addition to my blog and career coaching business, I wrote a weekly column doling out life and career advice in the “CV Weekly,” a widely distributed regional publication in the Coachella Valley.

Recently, after a 16 year stint in sunny Palm Springs, my husband and I returned to balmy southern Florida.  I am affectionately labeling this  new adventure “Florida Part II.”  Loved the desert but found we missed sunrise walks on the beach and just caught freshly grilled fish enjoyed at funky beach side cafes. Happily, settled in our new condo, literally across the street from the ocean, I am still blogging about and thoughtfully reinventing myself.

I’ve discovered the benefits of early morning Tai Chi and the local book mobile happy to order any book I choose. There are lots of community involvement and volunteer opportunities here for me. Looking forward to deciding where I can truly make a difference in this as my chapter unfolds.

Prior to leaving Rancho Mirage, California, I was actively involved in the community as Treasurer of the Palm Springs branch of the National League of American Pen Women. Additionally, I served on the boards of the American Business Women’s Association, Trendsetter Chapter, Palm Springs Writer’s Guild and the Desert Sunrise Chapter of Soroptimist International.
