To empower you and your team to enjoy both professional success and personal fulﬁllment with a focus on purposeful play and cultivating enriched relationships.
With a sense of optimism and a laser focus on your goals, I’m committed to helping you thrive as a leader and a team member. Together, we’ll look at where you are and where you want to be. That clear roadmap becomes the course for your journey. My enthusiasm for your success comes from knowing what it’s like to work in a corporate environment and how you can have both professional success and personal fulﬁllment.
What happens when the forces of corporate expertise and playful improv combine? You get an experience that takes into account your desire to develop your leadership acumen and drive business forward while infusing improv principles along the way that foster innovation, adaptability, and collaboration. My approach comes from years of working in the corporate arena coupled with improv training. Whether it’s a one-on-one coaching engagement or a dynamic, experiential workshop, my process focuses on the value of purposeful play and intentional goal-setting that are designed to get you the outcomes you want. By carefully listening to your speciﬁc needs, I design custom programs that are based upon your goals and the solution you seek. This may include a blended approach that incorporates data collection and assessment tools (i.e., MBTI, DiSC, TKI) 360-degree feedback, and more. With my extensive improv background, I take a ‘yes and’ approach to everything I do resulting in a customized program just for you. Together, we’ll build strategies that energize you conﬁdently forward towards your goals.
I’m an executive coach who has spent more than 20 years in the corporate arena tapping into the hidden potential of both individuals and teams to guide them toward new heights of professional success. I ﬁnd great joy in building trusted partnerships with my clients that are founded on purposeful change. Through strategic collaboration, clear goals, and humor, I work towards helping my clients look beyond their present circumstances and take bold forward action. My corporate background is complemented by skills I’ve developed through my years of improv classes at Second City, iO West, UCB (Upright Citizens Brigade) and BATS (Bay Area Theater Sports). With that I infuse applied improv principles such as yes-and, deep listening, and embracing mistakes into both coaching engagements and workshops.
When I ﬁrst began my business as an executive coach I dove in headﬁrst, leaving behind a career in corporate human resources to pursue my long-held passion. And I did it all without having a single client! Just as I learned in improv, I was able to build something out of nothing but an idea, growing from zero clients to many. Throughout my years as an executive coach, I’ve worked with organizations spanning many industries including life sciences, entertainment, credit unions, healthcare, the law, public agencies, city government, accounting, insurance, newspapers, and nonproﬁts. I look forward to helping you and your team grow to new heights.
