I’m a leadership, life, and career coach.
With over 20 years of experience coaching in profit and non-profit organizations, I’ve served widely diverse clients on six continents.
I understand the challenges and joys that come with leadership
responsibility because I’ve walked many miles in those shoes.
“The International Coach Federation (ICF) defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. For many, coaching is a life-changing experience that dramatically improves their outlook on work and life while improving leadership skills. Coaching helps people tap into their potential, unlocking sources of creativity and productivity.”
I coach the whole person: head and heart.
I like working with smart, curious people who want to make a difference,
who yearn for positive change – even if it’s just a twinkle in their eyes at
this point – and who want to take action. Clients appreciate my ability to synthesize information and get to the essence of what really matters.
As a Professional Certified Coach, I’m credentialed by the International Coach Federation (ICF) and uphold their code of ethics. I became a credentialed coach in 2008 after completing study at the Hudson Institute of Coaching. Because I love to learn and bring my best to my clients, I completed Hudson’s Master Coach Program in 2017-18. I’m a registered ICF Mentor Coach and enjoy coaching coaches.
I offer coaching via video, in-person, and phone meetings. Whether it’s
a yearlong coaching engagement or a personalized 1:1 jumpstart retreat,
I support you to:
Discover a clear understanding of your current reality and what is calling you forward. Tap into the words, feelings, and images that will spark energy.
Create goals and action steps to achieve your desired future. Identify the key talents and resources you will draw upon to fulfill your vision.
Launch your roadmap and bravely experiment with new behaviors and choices in your daily life and work.
Feel the glow of new self-knowledge and success. Confidently commit to sustained change.
I help you find your glow, claim it, and live it.
