I came to coaching because I love authentic connections with people. I’m at my personal best when I work alongside those who know they can follow their dreams and tap into the best version of themselves. Coaching allows me to combine my diverse skills, strengths, and experience in a creative way.
I’ve held numerous corporate, coaching, consulting and volunteer positions over the past 25 years, including those in brand management, sales and marketing, and investment banking, at General Mills, Johnson & Johnson, and Kidder, Peabody. My clients have included Warner Lambert, Nabisco, Hershey, Pfizer, Marriott, BMW, B. Braun Medical and Bain Capital. I am on the Preferred Executive Coach registry for Stanford Graduate School of Business alumni and provide pro bono coaching for AmeriCorps as well as for executives in the United Nations (and other philanthropic staff) for the Humanitarian Coaching Network. I also coach fellows in the World Economic Forum's three-year Global Leadership Program.
I received an MBA from Stanford Graduate School of Business and trained at the Coaches Training Institute (CTI), through which I became a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC). I am also a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) through the International Coaching Federation. I am certified in the Leadership Circle Profile 360 assessment and development tool and leadership culture survey. I am also a graduate of CTI's 10-month Co-Active Leadership Program. I hold a BA from Tufts University, where I was a Phi Beta Kappa member and graduated Summa cum laude. Please refer to my LinkedIn profile to learn more about my work history.
My hobbies include yoga, jewelry and furniture design, writing, running, hiking, mixed media artwork, and Pilates. And of course, talking, writing, blogging, and tweeting about leadership and empowerment. My coaching is high on authenticity, fun and humor—I love my job!
