Over 60 years of combined experience….
we’ve teamed up to provide a unique solution for the 50+ generation.
I’m Ellen, and it took me 50 years to CREATE the job and life I love.
For most of my corporate career, I felt frustrated and stuck. I was a Senior Management Consultant in Finance, but the intense responsibilities, extensive travel, and stress were endless.
I changed my life
By implementing simple – yet long lasting – habit changes, I lost 20 kilos, fully embraced the vibrant Swiss lifestyle, and embarked on my next chapter as my most authentic self. I’ve spent the last 17+ years helping clients and corporations worldwide do the same.
I support clients as they transition from knowing what to do to actually doing it.
With a masters degree in Health and Wellness Coaching, as well as accreditations in Coaching, Workplace Wellness, Mindful Eating and Health, I have built my second career around a non-diet, mindfulness-based approach to eating, physical activity, holistic health and self-care. I currently split my time between our homes in Geneva and the Swiss Alps with my husband of nearly 35 years, and our three awesome adult children.
Life is an experience to enjoy fully, every single day.
I’m Dominique, and this statement has been my guiding light for as long as I can remember. I knew very early on that I would create a life for myself that extended beyond the borders of my native Switzerland.
I built a corporate career that allowed me to travel the world, while simultaneously gaining vast experience as a C-suite executive.
After 30 years in upper management of Human Resources, I realized that my career was no longer driving me, but draining me. At 53, I embarked on my own journey to entrepreneurship.
Today, I successfully help professionals reinvent their careers to be in alignment with their values and purpose.
With the unfailing support of my husband, I am proud to say that I have not only created the life I truly desire; it goes far beyond the limits I ever believed possible. Helping others to do the same is my life’s calling.
How did we join hands to create Wake-up Shake-up Thrive !
Little did we know that a professional lunch meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, would define our futures. Over food and wine, our shared passions were obvious — the love for our country, people, food and life. That day, we realized that, by combining our experience and expertise, we could provide the holistic, comprehensive, approach to well-being that our clients needed to thrive.
