Why Hire me?

My Qualifications:

I graduated from Kent State University in Kent, Ohio with a Bachelor’s degree. I have over 27 years as a recognized successful business leader in the nonprofit community as an Executive Director. I am a certified professional co-active coach through the Coaches Training Institute, (CTI). I am also credentialed through the International Coaches Federation, (ICF) as an Associate Coaching Credential, (ACC). As a coach, I create an environment where people excel in developing and maximizing their strategic and collaborative strengths as a leader. I can help you organize, model taking care of yourself and maintain a work life balance. Finding solutions to these challenges will give you joy and will be infectious and inspire those around you. I encourage each individual to let their integrity and passion guide them in their pursuit of becoming a phenomenal leader who is widely respected and who others want to emulate.

I believe that we are all courageous and resilient. Sometimes we find ourselves in situations where being courageous and resilient is difficult and challenging. As your coach, I can help you find that voice and connect you to your own best self while being fully aware and connected to what is around you right now, not burdened by the past or fearing the future so you can have the satisfying life that you want!

My life has been dedicated to mentoring and encouraging others to do their  very best.  I help others see their smallest successes as huge accomplishments. Coaching with me will be fun and inspiring.  I want everyone to not just “Be” but to “Thrive” to be the very best they can be!

Who are my clients or niches?

I coach both men and women who are leaders in non-profit organizations or in small to medium size businesses. One of my passions is working with leaders who are enthusiastic about social justice issues such as child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault.

Helping others find and strengthen their desires through leadership development and collaboration is both rewarding and exciting for me as a coach, no matter what the business might be. Supporting others by helping them recognize their strengths and finding that life balance is important for everyone.

I also enjoy working with individuals who are struggling when facing retirement. By asking powerful questions and exploring their values I assist clients in finding success after retirement by facing their fears and planning for their future. I support them to find their solutions so their future can be bright and fulfilling and they can enter the next chapter of their life with gusto and excitement!

Many of us find it challenging to live a healthy life style while maintaining a career and or caring for a family. Sometimes we need support to make changes that will help us have a healthy and fulfilling life. I love being connected to others and truly get excited when I see that glimmer in a person’s eyes when they are successful in making healthy choices. 

If any of these challenges resonate with you, I can be that person to help you find your voice, just contact me.
