Designing Your Life Certified Coaches:
Why work with me? My approach is guided by a deep sense of personal integrity grounded in real world experience which includes a successful career as a human resource professional, having worked primarily in higher education, and life coach board certification with specialized training. This has prepared me to offer a range of tools, resources, and strategies to help you bring a well thought out life/work plan to fruition. To be most effective designing “your one wild and precious life” (May Oliver) we will co-create a partnership built on respect, openness, and non-judgement with your priorities leading the way.
I am a creative results-oriented professional with over 30 years of experience in a variety of industries and roles. This has given me a unique and somewhat unusual blend of technical, business, and coaching skills. As a coach, I work with clients to identify growth opportunities and implement plans for personal and professional growth. Regardless of the role, identifying needs and delivering solutions, has been at the center of my success. I bring this to each coaching session.
