Leadership Coaching

As a leader you face unrelenting pressure to innovate, produce, scale and achieve results. A multitude of urgent matters compete for your time and attention making it difficult to focus and get traction. You need someone you can rely on to help you sift through the clutter, identify what's most important and give you constructive feedback on your progress.  My leadership coaching is customized, one to one, professional development that provides you intentional time to come up for air, plan a course of action and build something that will last. I provide coaching for:​

  • Entrepreneurs & Startup Leaders

  • CEO's & C-Suite Leaders

  • Senior Managers

  • Emerging Leaders


Growing a business, regardless of maturity or size, requires an engaged team, a financial plan and a scalable infrastructure. Often the issues constraining a company's success are related to people, process or technology. Improvements in these areas will boost your team's confidence, increase morale and have a lasting impact on your business. If you are facing challenges around:

  • Operational Efficiency

  • Financial Management

  • Organizational Structure

  • Cash Flow Optimization

  • Budget & Business Planning

I can be your tactical business partner and help you develop a path for success.

Career Coaching

Finding your calling in the professional world takes thoughtful, intentional work and regular reflection. If you are a seasoned executive looking for a change, a young creative experiencing discontent or a college student just beginning your career, we can work together to discover powerful insights that can help you establish a life plan toward more meaningful and purposeful work. Using a step-by-step life design process, we will examine your unique strengths, desires and work experiences and translate them into a playbook that will guide your decisions moving forward.



Getting unstuck from work or leadership challenges requires thinking outside the box. To gain new perspective, we often need a break from the fast pace, distractions of the office environment. Stepping away from the office and into a natural setting, will boost your energy, facilitate fresh ideas and reduce the stress that can inhibit insight and creativity. If you would like to try a new coaching experience, then step outside with me for an outdoor coaching conversation. We’ll meet at a convenient walking trail and take a break from the status quo.
