Intuitive. Grounded. Truth Seeker.
Being a life & leadership coach isn't something I planned. It took a health crisis and a startup that couldn't scale for me to see what I was missing in my life's work...to see my calling. And after a 9-month sabbatical from work during which I completed life coach training, I'm now on a path to pursue my purpose with passion.
My training to be a life coach brought powerful tools to help me and others thrive in life and in leadership. I’ve blended this with almost three decades of experience as a scientist, policy maker, public relations executive, academic, strategy consultant in the science and tech industries, bank and non-profit board member, and co-founder/CEO of a communications technology startup company. Through 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 served as a informal coach to those leaders.
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 I completed my training and certification with the Koelle Institute for Equus Coaching in 2018.
I look forward to working with you to help you find your way to peace, passion, and purpose by moving your personal and professional bottlenecks out of the way. Please fill out the form on the right to start the conversation. We’ll get to know each other, check our fit, and get started on helping you move from good to great!

Where I Coach
I live in the heartland of the United States -- Kansas City to be specific. While COVID-19 is requiring social distancing, all of my coaching sessions are conducted via Zoom. So no matter where you live, I'm here to support you virtually!
