My story

I believe in the interconnectedness of life – that our unique value can positively impact others and the world around us. Because of this, I feel a deep responsibility to help others where I can. Transitioning to my own business, I wanted a path that would allow me to give back and appreciate the wonder and awe of others’ journeys. Drawing on my 30+ years of leadership experience in corporations I am inspired to help people in ways I was supported and in ways I wish I had been supported in my professional career.

Throughout my professional life I have strived to create success in the environment I was currently in. Because of this, I love a good project – finding a way to turn challenges into opportunities. As a business operations executive in a global organization, I led geographically dispersed teams, developed key initiatives and grew the business. Now, as an ICF-Certified Professional Coach, I bring this energy to my work with executives, entrepreneurs and leaders at all levels to encourage self-awareness, create action plans and achieve positive results. Helping you find your own path would be my privilege.

At one point we all find ourselves searching for our calling, but there is no perfect solution. We can create what we want and can choose to be our true selves in any situation. Coaching interrupts the momentum of life allowing the participant to see these new possibilities in where they are now and where they desire to go next. I have been blessed with a successful career in leadership, children, comfort and security but I also have been challenged by periods of transition including retirement, divorce and profound loss. These experiences shape my non-judgmental, curious approach to coaching. Whether you are an executive, aspiring for a higher positions, looking for a career that better aligns with your values and goals or navigating a life transition, I’m here to help you move forward and go farther, faster.

I look forward to connecting with you on your journey.

The Importance of Investing In Yourself

Everyone has the right to be seen and listened to deeply, and when you work with a coach, you will gain a new awareness, your thinking will shift, and the behaviors that have been holding you back will begin to change. You will gain clarity, and will remember the person you truly are — it’s like coming home to yourself.

Whether there’s a habit holding you back, a transition you’re struggling to navigate, or a new role on the horizon, there is deep value in investing in yourself. There’s nothing quite like gaining insight into yourself and empowering your own success.

experience & expertise

Over the course of my career, I’ve been a leader in program management and business operations. I successfully navigated and leveraged the complexities of large global organizations, which gave me the experience to evaluate and assess issues, formulate processes and initiatives, enhance performance, and help businesses perform.
