Coaching, Consulting & Training
My passion for coaching and leadership began in 1977 when I became an Associate Peace Corps Director. After witnessing several well-intentioned teams experience organizational breakdown, I developed a lifelong interest in understanding the mechanisms of healthy and functional group dynamics. I then spent a decade in Latin America consulting in management for the private, non-profit, and public sectors.
Next, I caught the travel bug and circled the globe for one year. Armed with a broad understanding of diverse cultures, I went on to complete my masters degree in Human Resources and Organization Development at the University of San Francisco. I was hired as an education specialist at the US Foreign Service Institute and remained at the Department of State from 1990-2013, working as an organizational consultant and executive development trainer. I worked as an international trainer and as a Certified Practicing Co-Active Coach (CPCC) for executives.
Now, I work independently as a certified executive coach and trainer. I focus on mentoring clients, transitions, group dynamics, and workplace stress. I am driven to help my clients uncover roadblocks that interfere with shaping and advancing their group’s agenda.
