I coach for the ripple effect – the tremendous impact that people can have on the world when they are clear, in their power, and in the right position.

My professional career has been marked by quantum leaps that have inspired intensive learning. I have gone from studying biology in college to investment banking on Wall Street; from assessing approximately 1,000 leaders as an executive recruiter to university research in mindfulness; from workforce readiness coaching to co-facilitating leadership and teambuilding retreats with an Olympic performance consultant. I have also journeyed from the world of D-1 college athletics to a decade of being humbled and inspired by attending contemplative retreats and trainings.

The common thread in these choices has been a burning desire to understand what makes the happiest people, the most consistent performers, and most inspiring leaders tick. What I developed along the way was the capacity to connect with and coach a diverse group of clients - business leaders, college athletes and coaches, ambitious professionals, and school leaders and parents.

And while I coach for impact, I live for the fulfillment that my clients experience when they take bold action that moves them closer to realizing their dreams.

I was recently named a preferred coach with the Talent Alliance, and was accepted into Georgetown’s prestigious Leadership Coaching Certificate program. I have also been trained as a Nonviolent Communication facilitator, Council facilitator, meditation student, yoga teacher, standup comedian (yikes!), and improviser. I graduated from Brown with a BA in Biology, where I was captain of the baseball team. My passion for social justice has led me to teach emotional intelligence classes in prisons, coach social entrepreneurs gratis, mentor at-risk teens, and teach meditation to youth sports teams.

Perhaps most importantly, our work together will challenge you, but you will absolutely not be judged for telling the truth about your life. 

A great coaching relationship is an agent for lasting personal change and will enable you to move through your day with more awareness, power, and joy. Our focused conversations will allow you to use your unique gifts and wisdom to clarify priorities, take inspired action, and bring your best to life. Please reach out to see if a coaching partnership is right for you!
