My work is with executive leaders who are driven to make an impact. They are embracing what they want to achieve, and recognize they need different mindsets and tools in order to be effective and create leaders around them. I decipher my client’s core driving motivator, and their dominant autopilot behaviors that no longer serve them. We then uncover latent capabilities that can shift to and flex. In this transformative journey, we also evolve their social intelligence which enables them to have more effective people leadership.

I am a certified executive coach from the Hudson Institute of Coaching, and former HR VP and Corporate Officer in biotechnology. My background has given me unique experiences and tools for coaching. I have had the privilege of coaching executive leaders from a variety of companies like Astellas, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Leavelogic, and Microsoft.

In addition to being an executive coach, I am a wife, mother, grandmother (my favorite), sister, foodie, explorer, reader, gardener, walker, and consumer of British murder mysteries. I am active in coaching communities, HBA Seattle, and wine making communities. Favorite inspirational quote – If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. John Quincy Adams
