I am an Executive Coach, Behavioral Facilitator, and the Author of "I Heart Creativity".

Here’s a little more about me.

My work as a coach and facilitator has taught me that trauma often sits just beneath the surface of work issues.  That everyone has the capacity to lead bravely and with creativity and heart if they are able to release their old stories of crisis and move ahead in a better way.  And that the best support I can give as a coach is simply walking through the work alongside my clients, forming partnership of trust, and helping them to illuminate the opportunities in front of them.  I am here to assist you in seeing how whole, capable and creative you are and how ready you are for a life that lets you live and work better.

I started in the corporate world.

I began my career working in the corporate world in healthcare and high tech industries and helping to launch global products. Transitioning to business ownership, I opened a strategic brand communication agency for 10 years, working with major corporate brands and becoming the founder and host of a variety of events and executive retreats.  Over the course of my 20 year career I have served businesses of all types and sizes with executive coaching, strategic planning, leadership development programs, marketing strategy, and interactive communications development.

I am an Executive Coach and Behavioral Facilitator.

My work helps leaders discover their creative heart with a combination of presence, practice, fresh perspective and emotional intelligence for better organizational results.  I deliver my work in confidential private coaching sessions, team coaching, facilitated virtual cohorts, on-site/in person workshops, and executive retreats.

My Education 

I hold a Bachelors of Science in Community Health and a Bachelors of Science in Secondary Education with endorsements in Psychology and Art.  I was trained and certified as Clinical Massage Therapist (CMT, NCTMB) with a focus on Eastern Medicine and Aromatherapy.  I am a Master Certified Coach Candidate with International Coaching Federation (ICF), and I have done advanced coursework in Trauma, Shame, and Post-Traumatic Growth with the National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine (NICABM).   

I believe in walking into my sessions with confidence because I know the theory.  I am a Certified Professional Behaviors Analyst (CPBA), a Certified Professional Motivators Analyst (CPMA), a Certified Professional Emotional Intelligence Analyst (CPEIA), and a Certified Practitioner of The Leadership Circle Profile (TLC-P) and Collective Leadership for Teams.  

My diverse background offers me the ability to understand leaders of all kinds.  I partner with my clients on the practical use of human dynamics and creative heart to change their lives and bring transformation in the workplace.

My work is global.

I am a member of the Forbes Coaches Council and a regular contributor to Forbes and Thrive Global.  My work has been featured in Fast Company, Huffington Post, Entrepreneur, Business Insider, All Business, and on numerous blogs and podcasts.

I work with companies of all sizes across North America and around the world.
