Who am I?
Why do I do this work?

Open Book.

I've been studying, learning about, practicing, and coaching others on leadership and transitions for over 20 years.  I seek to provide a balance of research-based, practical, and personalized approach to your leadership journey - at all levels, as well as support teams in all stages from creation, to development, or even re-imagining. 

Leadership is "Simple, but Not Easy."  Teamwork takes practice - and we are all on a leadership journey.  From those who are thinking about who they want to be as a leader to those with decades of experience, we can work together to take you to the next level through a variety of methods. 

As the creator of the model "Cultivating the Leader's Heart," I am able to take individuals, teams, and organizations on a journey to be character and values-focused to enable productive teams.  From individual coaching at multiple levels to teams and organizational-wide efforts, my approach is to meet each individual, team, and organization where they are - and help them to get where they want to be.
