My Story

I never thought I'd end up as both an academic and entrepreneur.

Growing up, I had learning disabilities, which taught me a lot about how I learn best. ​It was tough dealing with the stigma, feeling like I wasn't good enough. But over ​time, I learned to embrace what makes me unique.

That experience has allowed me to support others who struggle with feeling ​inadequate. From special education to earning a doctorate in Industrial and ​Organizational Psychology, I've seen how people can thrive despite challenges.

With 25+ years of corporate experience, I've learned practical ways to help ​individuals and organizations grow. I use coaching, facilitation, and consulting to ​tackle everyday leadership hurdles and drive real transformation.

Evidence-Based Executive Coaching

Coaching is an individualized partnership aimed at guiding and developing leaders to enhance their performance, overcome challenges, and achieve their full potential.
