Coaching Bio

In this crazy, often hectic and chaotic world it helps to have people we can reach out to to help us explore our interests and passions while also helping us achieve our goals.

My niche in coaching is in taking a wholistic approach to working with executives, senior managers, and other leaders in for profit, non profit, and entrepreneurial ventures experiencing the very real and very challenging stress of change. Having walked the walk, working globally in all three sectors, I look forward to working with you to find your focus, set your goals, and guide you to success.

My own journey has taken me from technical sales and marketing roles in New York, Boston, Raleigh, and Silicon Valley, to educational leadership roles in the United States, Monaco, Finland, and most recently, with SNHU in New Hampshire. My passion lies at the intersection of service, education, entrepreneurship and technology. And while I have an MBA and a doctorate in Organization and Management, my career and leadership style has evolved largely based on the challenges I have faced, the failures I have learned from and the successes I have helped achieve.

Mostly though, it is the people along the way who have mentored guided, led, and coached me that have helped me become the person I am.

I love exploring new places and ideas – and getting to know people from all walks of life.

I have worked for a wide range of new ventures, for profit, and not for profit organizations in the U.S., France, Monaco, Finland, and Tanzania – learning critical business and life lessons along the way. Here are the few:
– In leading a social venture that supported the start of new home building businesses in Tanzania, from elders in rural villages, I learned about dignity and the importance of tribes.
– In designing and implementing a technical support center, technical training curriculum, and a field sales force, I learned the value of collaboration and the importance of continuous improvement.
– In helping lead the turn around of a University in Europe, I explored concepts of global leadership, learning at the feet of students and colleagues from over 100 countries.
– And finally, in helping to create a program for children living in poverty that helped them overcome summer learning loss while developing healthy habits, I learned the power of community and caring.

And while I bring these experiences into our work together, I am most interested in learning more about you and what brings you here.

If in my bio you see ways in which we connect, and how I can help bring clarity to your own life as a professional, please reach out to set up an initial (free) discussion. Thank you.

Note: I am a CCMP (Certified Change Management Practitioner), have a PHD in Organization and Management, an MBA, and a specialization in Future Thinking. I am currently pursuing the Board Certified Coach program with Coach Training World as I love their wholistic approach to the coaching profession.
