I care deeply about helping people find their purpose – in work and life. I am passionate about returning people to themselves – rediscovering what is powerful and unique about what they bring to their lives and businesses.
I came to coaching after spending time in dynamic corporate settings as a CMO, brand story teller and business change consultant. I have managed change from the inside, leading teams through times of rapid growth and transformation. I found that what determined success came down to people – how their values and dreams connected to the goals of the company and the aspirations of the brand.
I believe we don’t have to trade off joy for outsized performance results. Work can be challenging but it shouldn’t be hard. I work with and develop exceptional people to create a virtuous cycle of performance wins that contribute to greater personal fulfillment. My clients climb higher, smarter, and faster and are committed to creating environments where people and businesses thrive. I believe in tapping into the elements of your story – the unique, powerful gifts that make you interesting and real. It’s the start of our work together in daring to name what is possible and reaching for it.
