I am here to help you create a career you love and overcome any workplace challenge.

I can show you how.


Hello everyone! So happy to have you here for this week’s episode. After this last week and the stress of the election I’m sure you’re happy to get back to your routine. I had many sleepless nights for sure!   Prior to my coaching practice I was a leader of talent & development in the pharmaceutical/biotechnology industry. As part of this role, I developed people managers, led our inclusion strategy, was a performance coach, and really owned all things people development. In 2018 I earned a master’s in organizational psychology and my thesis work studied employee engagement, psychological safety in employees, and how leaders could create high performers during times of change. What is the type of environment necessary for employees to be the most engaged and perform at the highest level. I studied 30 years of research in trust, psychological safety, engagement, leadership, and organization change.

This was so applicable to my leadership role in Corporate but also very relevant to my coaching practice. I work with a lot of people managers or aspiring people managers. You could say I’m really passionate about helping women achieve their goals and see what is possible for them.


The 1 leadership behavior you need

November 11, 2020

Today I’m going to share some of the research I studied and the 6-step model I created when I was in graduate school. You’re going to be able to use this information to know how to navigate change and more importantly why these efforts don’t work and often leave you frustrated so you can make the improvements or spark a conversation with your manager.
