Matchmaker & Date Coaching History
I have been working in the matchmaking industry since 1992 spending most of my career working directly by phone, or in person interviewing over 65,000 singles North American wide. Our discussions are about real life dating and relationship challenges, where it comes to finding, meeting and connecting with the right one. This is a natural fit for me, because I love helping people and I’ve been told I have the gift of gab! I’ve worked with singles in many demographics and lifestyle. My business and clientele has changed throughout the years and I’m currently servicing high quality, high calibre, high net-worth and highly motivated entrepreneurs and business owners to find love.
I have been coined a matchmaking expert and co-host the largest matchmaking and date coaching conference through iDate, the internet dating conference.
