My Clients

My clients are highly capable professionals eager to tap into their internal power and potential, but they’re somehow stopped in fulfilling that goal. I help them break the cycle of burnout and create a truly rewarding career.

Using practical, concrete tools, they quickly learn to build effective teams they can trust where people are committed, collaborative, productive, and fulfilled in their work. They also learn to communicate more effectively and build the strategic partnerships that make things move. As a result, they gain the confidence, respect, and recognition that sets them apart so they’re first in line for promotions and pay raises.

MY EXPERIENCE

My coaching builds on over 20 years of experience helping leaders and teams to take their performance to the next level. I’ve consulted for major corporations like Chevron and Shell on some of the largest projects in the energy sector worldwide. On those projects, I supported leaders with team building, conflict resolution, and coaching to ensure their teams worked well together and could perform at their best.

I’ve also provided change management consulting to organizations in the IT, healthcare, and human services sectors. In those engagements, I worked with managers to build the buy-in and support they needed for the change efforts to be successful.

I earned my M.B.A. from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and a B.A. from Swarthmore College. I currently live in Lincoln, MA, where I enjoy hiking the local trails with my husband and teenage son.

My Inspiration

My interest in leadership goes back to when I was just 12 years old. My dad took a new job as Sales Manager for a business owner named Harry, who knew exactly how to make the most of his talents. Before that, Dad had seemed a little stuck. From what I could see, it looked like his superiors weren’t very interested in his opinions, his job satisfaction, or his long-term growth. But Harry was different. He knew how to tap into what was great about my dad.

This job changed Dad’s life. He came alive at work. In doing so, he made major differences for the company, doubling their revenues within just a few years. It also made a huge difference for me. Dad was much more present at home. He had more energy and enthusiasm than I had ever seen before. Harry seemed to inspire that same energy in most of the people working for him. His support helped my dad take his career to the next level and to create a team of people who were committed to and proud of their work.

I thought that was absolutely fascinating and it sparked a deep curiosity in me about the art and skill of leadership. I yearned to know exactly how Harry built that sense of team and continued to engender such loyalty and commitment to quality work. From then on, I devoted my life to learning what it takes for leaders to foster the very best in their staff.
