Happy clients, happy Megan 🙂
The alignment of making a living and making a life is a constant evolution, and the journey is much sweeter when we can share the highs and lows with someone we trust. I’ve built a business to support the life I love, and now I want to support you in doing the same!
Why work with me?
I’ve experienced very much how it feels to live and work NOT in alignment with yourself—but I made it to the other side and now I want to guide you there too. This I learned the way most of us do—the hard way!
In 2016, after a decade of working as a designer in American corporations and agencies, I completely burned out and got really sick (acute viral meningitis SUCKS).
Fortunately and with time, I recovered completely and left my home country to explore the world with only my backpack and a laptop. As I funded my travels through Europe and Asia with remote freelance projects, my appreciation grew for all the different ways we can live and earn.
This season let me discover my true values, and I crafted a new life prioritizing them. For five years now I’ve been based in Barcelona, working with independent creatives all over the world, and still traveling to explore new places!
It hasn’t always been simple—a corporate hangover followed me for a long time as I struggled to find alignment—but patience and persistence have been so fruitful, as well as the support of mentors and coaches along the way.
No matter the stage you’re in, it brings me great joy to support you in your own journey!
