I am an International Coach Federation (ICF) certified executive and leadership coach. I am passionate about helping new executives grow their leadership skills, strengthen communication skills, improve conflict management skills, and engage and mobilize their workforce. We work together to create a culture shift that reduces staff turnover while creating more stability and harmony. We also develop a personalized strategy to balance work and life, stop feeling overwhelmed, and regain energy and fulfillment. Most importantly, they no longer experience the levels of stress they had felt before we started working together.

I bring a wealth of practical knowledge to coaching through extensive training and experience as an executive coach, and over 33 years of experience in public service. I served nine years in the C Suite as a career senior service executive leading large and complex organizations, with expertise in human resources and leadership development.
