About Sasha

Life + Leadership Coach for Smart, quirky women 40+ 

I’m a life and leadership coach and writer known for thought-provoking work on topics such as relationships, personal growth, and women’s empowerment. My writing feeds my coaching, and my coaching shapes my writing.

A former Silicon Valley startup co-founder, I got burned out on working in tech and ran away to South America for years on a hunch I had to get out of my head and into my body. I came back to help my clients with a similarly somatic, pleasure-focused, approach to helping you get clear on what you want and set boundaries to protect your ability to go for it.

People know me best as the author of the book Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics (HarperOne), in which I coined the term “quirkyalone” to describe individuals who embrace self-love and their independence while remaining open to meaningful relationships. I also wrote To-Do List: From Buying Milk to Finding a Soul Mate, What Our Lists Reveal About Us (Simon & Schuster).  I am at work on a memoir.

My books and coaching approach have been featured in various media outlets such as CNN, NPR, Vogue, and the New York Times.

Since 2011, I’ve helped hundreds of women (and some self-aware men) 40+ create turned-on lives, careers, and businesses. 

Being my client is a unique experience. You might even learn to “pussywalk” with me! To get to know me further, you can read this “wild bio.”

My Story

Helping women create turned-on lives

Am I taking on new clients? There’s only one way to find out. Reach out, tell me about you and what you want to focus on, and I’ll let you know. I do work with men as well as women. The most important question is, do we have a good fit?
