More about me



I am committed to leading my life so that I can best use my natural talents and gifts, weaving my experience into my coaching practice so that I can help others lead as well.


I really like to work with reluctant leaders, people who have been promoted into leadership positions, or who have promoted themselves by starting their own businesses and have then wondered, how do I do this?

What I did well in a classroom did not quite fit the skill set I needed to be a successful school director, so I learned from experience. I also hired a coach to help me define my new role and goals, recognize my talents, and transition from an enthusiastic team member to an effective team leader.


Now as a coach I help clients clarify their roles and imagine the type of leaders they want to be. In our first session we will explore your natural strengths and personal values, as I believe this information is critical to your success, happiness, and ease as a leader.


I describe my mission as transforming high performance team members to leaders– gracefully.
