Pianist, DMA and Juilliard Faculty member

Astrid is one of the most inspiring people I know, having been incredibly successful in both her first career as a lawyer and her family life, while maintaining one of the most upbeat, optimistic, and forward-thinking personalities out there.

Through innovative thinking, genuine care and concern, and an immensely organized approach, Astrid has helped me refocus my core values, reshape my personal mission statement, and prioritize all the aspects of my life in which I am so invested. The focus in both my professional and personal life has brought my success and happiness to a new level.

Brava!  Thank you so much for sharing your gifts, experience, and depth of knowledge with us.  Your presentations truly anchored the program.  I really appreciate the time and thought you put into tailoring the information to the opera world and to their personal experiences.  That really made the difference.  I look forward to the rest of the week with this solid footing underneath us.

Thanks Astrid!

Astrid has an incredibly positive yet focused energy that she dedicates towards helping individuals and organizations discover their best selves.  I’ve been fortunate to work with her on several occasions and I cannot tell you how much I value her wisdom, guidance, and encouragement.
