Intuitive. Grounded. Storyteller.
Being a business & life coach wasn’t something I planned. It found me after almost three decades of business experience as a scientist, policymaker, public relations executive, academic, strategy consultant in the science and tech industries, bank and non-profit board member, and co-founder & chief storyteller of a marketing technology startup company. Coaching was the best way to take my knowledge and experience and put them to good use.
Throughout my career, I've worked with a lot of emerging and established leaders who ran businesses ranging from the smallest to some of the largest. Most companies were privately owned or investor-backed, and a few were publicly traded.
I'm a socio-biologist by training, which means I have a keen eye for patterns in human behavior and nature. I'm also fluent in "geek speak" and can translate just about anything complicated for the layperson. But most of all, I understand people and have an intuitive sense of their strengths and how to position them to lead.
I'm certified in the Keirsey Temperament Sorter and the Hogan Assessment. I completed my life coach training and certification with the Martha Beck Institute in early 2017 and my training and certification with the Koelle Institute for Equus Coaching in 2018.
I look forward to helping you find your "inside edge." Please fill out my contact form to start the conversation. We’ll get to know each other, check our fit, and get started on helping you move your business forward with Strategy + Structure + Story + Support = Success.

Where I Coach
I live in the heartland of the United States -- Kansas City to be specific. All of my coaching sessions are conducted via Zoom. So no matter where you live, I'm here to support you virtually! And if you want to join me in the ring with a horse, please let me know.
