My Coaching

My coaching speciality

My many years of experience in the corporate world has provided me with a great platform from which to coach and mentor individuals who want to excel in their careers. As a writer, I love learning, and stay current on the many issues facing clients in this disruptive and chaotic world we occupy. I enjoy helping people discover their authentic self and to stand in that knowledge by taking action to achieve their dreams. Coaching is about listening, championing, challenging, and holding a space for accountability so that clients can truly take their lives to a new level.


Free Intake - For Individuals, Leadership & Executive Coaching

1 session, 0h 20

Let's meet & discuss your coaching needs--who you are, and who you are at your best--what dreams you have, and your plans for achieving them.

Executive Coaching and Mentoring - For Individuals, Leadership & Executive Coaching, Career & Job Search Coaching

2 sessions, 0h 55 each

Following a sample intake session, two sessions to essentially act as a proof-of-value for coaching and mentoring. While there is no ongoing commitment to further sessions, having a safe space for discovery of talents, goals, dreams, and challenges that can be turned into action plans for success can be liberating. Sessions take place every other week. Your growth happens as you manage the change you want in your life through the work you do between sessions. Two sessions may be adequate for a specific and very focused issue, but a coaching offering with more sessions may be more valuable.

Executive Coaching and Mentoring - For Individuals, Leadership & Executive Coaching, Career & Job Search Coaching

About Me

About myself & my experience

I coach because I love to help people leverage change instead of fearing it. I have been a student of change for many years and am amazed at how resilient and adaptable human beings are. I also know that we do not live up to our full potential and allow many other things to keep us from being the people we were created to be in this world. I will be learning something new on the day I draw my last breath. Life is for living, laughing, loving, and learning!

My coaching method & approach

I first listen to what the client wants to accomplish with coaching. I attempt to understand who they are at their best and how confident they are in that identity. Can use assessment tools such as the Kolbe-A (an assessment of how people are naturally wired for success) and DISC, as well as several other tools like Wheel of Life to establish a baseline from which to measure success going forward. We will design an alliance for coaching together to forward their life to meet their desired goals.
