“(Re)discover your purpose. Invest in your strengths. Lead with confidence.” isn’t just a tag line – it’s the vision by which I approach coaching.
I work with individuals and teams who want to thrive as authentic, empathetic, and visionary leaders. I coach to empower you to become a strengths focused, culturally competent leader. We start at where you are, identify your strengths, and work towards your goals using those strengths.
I bring more than 15 years of experience in leadership development, diversity and inclusion, people management, and community engagement. Each of my career experiences have shaped my coaching practice through practical professional experiences:
+ I’ve led a statewide social justice non-profit organization, developed strategic plans, implemented fund development plans, and grew and retained a diverse, high-performing staff during a turbulent economy
+ I’ve scaled an award-winning, international computer science education program for Microsoft and helped build a more empathetic, engaged team culture
+ I’ve developed and facilitated numerous diversity and inclusion training initiatives (including LGBTQ+ inclusion, anti-racist education, and disability inclusion)
I’ve coached leaders at all levels on strategy, communications, and implementation, I leverage personal experiences working with exemplary leaders who taught me through their grace, humility, and vision. I also incorporate lessons I’ve learned from under-prepared, under-skilled managers I’ve had as a learning tool during our conversations. I believe both examples bring immense value and can help us learn, develop, and grow professionally.
I bring my whole authentic self to the conversation and expect you to do the same. My style is to balance challenge and support, use humor and storytelling appropriately, and establish trust so we can really dig deep to achieve your goals.
