ABOUT

 

I create brave spaces.

I am a professional coach, facilitator, writer, and experience creator.  I am an ICF Certified Professional Coach, an experienced Facilitator and Public Speaker and a Certified Enneagram Practitioner. 

I will walk with you.

The shift from emotionally fragile to passionately sovereign requires a guide and a support system.  I work with clients 1:1 and with their teams to make change which is complete and lasting.

Your circumstances don't change, but you do.  The manner in which you deal with the elements of your life, the sovereign power you feel around being able to affect the outcome, will be profoundly different.  

Background:

I started my career thinking I was going to save the world, one person at a time.  

After corporate life took every drop of my energy and hope, I turned to agency life and brand communications and found new energy in creativity, strategy and helping to bridge communication gaps between people who didn't understand each other.  

I'm a futuristic thinker, so rapidly I wanted to operate under my own steam and move at my own pace.  After several years and many vertical markets as an account executive / project manager, I founded my own Brand + Communications agency, where I did business development, creative direction, strategy, and client management.  My forte was helping people have an integrated brand experience. 

As my team grew it became apparent that the area of the business I had to put the focus of my time on was people management, broad futuristic planning, education and coaching.  

So I shifted my entire focus to management consulting and coaching, becoming a popular and well-known facilitator, public speaker and executive coach in the US, Canada, and the UK.  

Education + Professional:

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications and Marketing for Healthcare with a specialized focus area in Psychology.  I am also a Certified Massage Therapist credentialed with NCTMB with a focus on aromatherapy and curanderismo/herbalism. 

I am a certified professional coach via ICF, holding an Professional Certified Coach credential, working toward my Master Certified Coach certification.  With my level of credentialing and specialty areas of focus, I am one of less than 500 coaches who do what I do.  

I am the author of the book “I Heart Creativity” and have been a contributing writer to Forbes, Fast Company, Huffington Post, Entrepreneur, All Business, and Thrive Global.

Personal:

I live in the Pacific Northwest with my family and our border collie.  We live on an urban micro-farm with chickens, vegetable gardens, fruit trees, and a wide variety of culinary and traditional medicinal herbs. 

I work with clients in the US, Canada, the UK, and Europe. 

I travel and meet with clients from the Mountain Time Zone.  When travel safety allows, I do deep and rapidly effective immersion work in half day, 1-day, and 2-day in-person sessions, with individuals or teams.  

I also offer all of my work, coaching and facilitated, through secure virtual channels.
