Coaching Philosophy

New realities are about making small shifts to reveal new opportunities before you.  When you take the time to break down what may initially be an impediment, it is revealing how little things – a tweak here or there in your approach, perspective, or behavior – can release a wealth of possibility.  Working together, we will give you a chance to lift your head out of the moment and set new intentions to enhance your leadership skills and competencies.  As your coach, I am determined to create a trusting and safe environment to explore your strengths and areas for development. I relish the opportunity to get to know you, to connect with you, to guide your development and witness your success.  I love working with people from all walks of life, all cultures and perspectives.  Watching the growth, development, and success of others is my passion and I look forward to coaching you through your journey.  And as you intentionally use these new shifts in your leadership, you may just discover the results can be transformational!

Community Activities and Personal Interests

I have enjoyed teaching Junior Achievement in all levels for the past 35 years. My love of the development and growth of others is also met through instructing classes at a non-profit and major universities. And, I continue to mentor individuals personally and professionally.
