Learn About Coaching
Ready to Transform Your Life?

Throughout my professional career, I have found the greatest motivation and satisfaction from enabling and empowering others to reach their professional goals and dreams. Coaching others has ignited my core skills and values like never before. Through these experiences, I have discovered useful methods to unlock the leadership potential and drive that is present in each person, giving them the confidence and ability to take action and hold themselves accountable.

Before becoming a Certified Professional Coach (CPC), I spent over thirty years in sales, management, business development, and strategy working in companies such as Citigroup, BMO Harris, American Express, and Fifth Third Bank. These experiences in the corporate and entrepreneurial spheres have given me the tools to help others who are working in these areas and looking to reach their highest potential as professionals and leaders.
I was certified as a professional coach by the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) and am a certified master practitioner (ELI-MP) of the Energy Leadership Index which assesses individual, group, and organizational leadership. I use this tool to help individuals draw out and embrace their leadership potential, transitioning from an inward, catabolic leadership to an external, anabolic leadership. I am also a member of the International Coaching Federation and am accredited at the ACC level.

In my personal life I am an avid marathon runner, running competitively for the last 38 years. A practiced yogi, I work to impart that same level of mindfulness and calm motivation to everyone I coach and consult. Each of us can be a leader who inspires and motivates others to action. Finding that leadership within yourself, drawing it out, and locating that self-inspiration can be difficult, but with proper coaching I can help you achieve the results you are looking for in your daily life.
