Bio

I’m an executive coach who’s been in your shoes, in the trenches trying to build the talent as results are measured daily. My deep experience as a senior leader for large, global companies including Starbucks Coffee Company, Chipotle Mexican Grill, and Barnes and Noble enables me to help leaders at all levels transform into extraordinary leaders, achieving their goals, bringing their vision to life, and creating teams that are inspired, engaged, and want to work with them! I do this by helping my clients increase self-awareness, develop new mindsets, and improve two-way communication. I’ve been there! I know how hard it is! I understand the pressure to manage a career and meet your goals both professionally and personally all while helping your teams to perform at their best. I can make it easier for you!

I believe people have massive untapped potential and understand what it takes to unlock it. After 30 years of progressive leadership roles in the retail and restaurant industries at some of the most iconic brands, I decided to use my practical business "boots on the ground" experience to help others by doing what I am most passionate about, developing leaders- helping them to discover their strengths and achieve what is most important to them, reach goals and celebrate their success. My specialties include communication, leadership development, career advancement and planning, team building, change agility, developing emotional intelligence, conflict resolution, and problem solving, and mentoring leaders.

My specialties include communication, leadership development, career advancement and planning, team building, change agility, developing emotional intelligence, conflict resolution, and problem solving, and mentoring leaders.

My coaching philosophy is rooted in the belief that we all have the power to create a life we love that is both balanced and fun! When we connect our goals and aspirations to our authentic whole selves, we can prioritize and create a path to get there. My goal as a coach is to help my clients gain clarity, find solutions aligned with their values, and aspirations, maximize their potential and be closer to living their best lives through transformational and sustained change.
