Leadership & Career Strategist
* likes to be creative | visualizes possibilities | connects on an individual level *
Inspiring individuals to create positive change, and mobilizing organizations towards a better future, are the hallmarks of my 25-year career in communications, public relations and marketing, and, more recently, as a career and leadership coach. My experiences in both large corporations (Cardinal Health, NCR Corp.) and smaller enterprises (employee-owned PR firm, tech start-up) have given me insights to help navigate a diverse array of work environments, cultures and organizational structures.
My coaching philosophy is grounded in appreciative inquiry, an approach built on the simple notion that every individual has something meaningful to contribute. Identifying this powerful “something” inspires human potential and action for change. I’m certified in The Birkman Method and completed the Gallup Organization’s Great Manager program, based on the Strengths methodology. In addition to career coaching, I offer executive coaching, and facilitate a variety of custom workshops and team engagement sessions for organizations.
It’s incredibly gratifying to help clients gain greater self-awareness to break through their barriers to personal and professional success. The opportunity to help others see their unique potential, and grow in confidence, is a powerful experience.
