Sally Blue

I’m a passionate coach and consultant for life and work transitions because I believe in the inherent creativity (and yes joy!) in the hard stuff. I’m a single mom to a pretty amazing middle schooler. We have a black-and-white cat named Peaches and a dwarf hamster named Bluedini, because he escapes like Houdini. I’ve got an incredible squad of friends who support and push me, a loving family, and a weakness for Tex-Mex enchiladas and Murder, She Wrote. I run; I do yoga. I like to hike and travel. I believe in a holistic approach to life and in the power of social impact and giving back. I’m learning to enjoy musicals, use a slow cooker, and nap. Find me at or
