In a nutshell, I help you love you, so that you can fully, courageously, be you.
I have an unfailing faith in humanity and steadfastly believe we’re all trying to make it through life the best way we know how. Perfection is a lie we tell ourselves, and overwhelm is a heavy cloak that keeps us where we are. My purpose in life is to help others find themselves again and live more fully.
As a coach and facilitator, I create a safe environment to explore options and build self-awareness, respecting your point of view, while challenging you to look beyond it.
As a thinker myself, I make “touchy-feely” accessible to the practical, analytical mind - listening without judgment, supporting you with deep empathy and challenging you when you’re only seeing things from one side.
Having held executive leadership positions in operations, strategy and business winning, I understand the challenges inherent in balancing strategy with execution, high performance with efficiency and an overwhelming workload with life, family and personal needs.
I highly value personal growth and am on a mission of life-long learning. I am certified in Brene Brown's curricula (Daring Way™, Rising Strong™, Gifts of Imperfection™, Dare to Lead™) and my coaching and teaching work are heavily influenced by her concepts of courage, vulnerability, worthiness and wholehearted living.
I am a Leadership Coach, Organizational Culture Strategist and Instructor, certified Project Management Professional (PMP) and Six Sigma Green Belt with over 25 years of experience, including time as an officer in the US Navy, as an executive in a large defense contracting company and as the owner and CEO of a Woman/Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned small business.
I am a credentialed coach through the International Coaching Federation and am certified to administer the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator™ (MBTI), EQ-i 2.0, Hogan, Change Navigator, DiSC, and the Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation™ Business (FIRO-B) assessments and to deliver the Daring Way™, Rising Strong™, Dare to Lead™ and Immunity to Change™ curricula.
