Designing Your Life Certified Coaches
“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” This quote, by Albert Schweitzer, hangs on my office wall and inspires clients to take the time to reflect before embarking upon a new or shift in their careers. My own professional journey spans over three decades working for Fortune 500 companies in financial services and in healthcare, organizations in the private, non-profit and government sectors where I led and mentored high performing individuals and teams, and in academia. In my current endeavors, I coach/consult with my private clients helping professionals navigate job transitions and find new careers and at the University of Denver where I coach graduate business students. Designing Your Life has brought definition and an ideal construct to provide professionals a roadmap to reach the intersection of Success and Happiness, eluding so many in today’s challenging business environment. I am inspired, enthusiastic and committed to bringing Designing Your Life into every coaching conversation so that Happiness and Success become One.
Leadership coaching for mission-focused individuals and small teams. Liz supports emerging and established leaders in advancing their career and amplifying their social impact. Her practice as both coach and consultant is guided by the following values: co-creation and partnership, authenticity, connection, stewardship of valuable time and resources, empathy, innovation, and a focus on personal and organizational impact. Coaching and professional interests include mentoring early-stage changemakers, integrating simplicity and what’s essential into one’s personal and professional pursuits, spending time in nature, and helping people see the world through different lenses.
I’ve always had a passion for making an impact, which has guided me through a non-traditional career path, developing a breadth of skills – and taking several big career leaps of my own. As a coach, I deepened my training through Georgetown University’s Leadership Coaching program, and have brought together my skills in listening, empathy, and honest assessments with my organizational leadership expertise to offer holistic coaching that is tailored to each person’s goals – whether related to career change, leadership growth, or navigating transitions.
I catalyze growth in people and empower them to build a profound and meaningful legacy. As a certified Career Coach, I utilize both my 10 years of experience and energetic personality to help those who are yearning for clarity and meaning in their lives develop the confidence to design fulfilling careers and lives they love. My unique approach of action-driven planning coupled with humor-filled encouragement has helped hundreds of people become resilient leaders, excelling through the hurdles of life on to making a positive impact in the world. My professional career has included work in strength-based advising, career coaching, personal branding, growth mindset development, and diversity, inclusion, and equity. I am an international speaker and an accredited leader from Cornell University. I hold two Master’s degrees in Higher Education from Texas Tech University and Universidad de Alcalá de Henares, respectively, and a Bachelor’s in Organizational Psychology from Angelo State University. I enjoy spending time outdoors in beautiful Colorado with my husband, our adorable son, and nerding out to Star Wars in my spare time.
