ABOUT

ME

My professional Coaching Bio
I am passionate about inspiring others.

I am an invigorating executive and coach with extensive experience accelerating team performance and revenue growth. In high-level roles for industry-leading companies, I have inspired teams to surpass challenging objectives and business targets through a creative, well-structured and focused approach. As a marketing executive, I utilized cutting-edge strategies to boost multi-million dollar sales growth. Now, as a coach, I empower and motivate others to exceed personal, professional and company goals.


I began my career at Fleetwood Enterprises. During that time I was an instrumental member of the innovative leadership team that helped the company break barriers within the industry and reach the pinnacle of the company’s success. I also helped launch new business ventures and deepen relationships with dealer’s nationwide. After leaving Fleetwood, I was recruited to the multi-billion dollar Chinese-owned electronics magnate, Hisense, as their International Marketing Director. During my tenure I re-engineered their international branding strategy, harmonizing the voice of the brand across 5 continents. Among my accomplishments at Hisense, I was the public face of the company internationally, I successfully launched the brand in the United States, and trained company employees how to work in an integrated culture.

I became a coach full-time after leaving Hisense to follow my passion and talent for coaching and developing others. Working with clients from diverse industries, I am able to leverage my considerable background to help individuals and companies achieve incredible results. With savvy business insight honed through my MBA and real-life business challenges, I have built a reputation for strong leadership, training and developing high-performing teams, introducing strategic solutions and generating world-class results.

My passion for business success is an outgrowth of my life’s personal passion for driving teams to excellence. Believing that we should use our talents to help create positive change, I coached for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, coaching hundreds of participants to run a marathon. An accomplished endurance athlete, I am an avid distance runner, certified yoga instructor and a two-time Ironman. 

 

My completed degrees include a PhD and MA in depth psychology with an emphasis in somatic studies, an MBA, and a BA in Business Administration with a dual concentration in marketing and economics. My certifications include Certified Professional Coach from fully accredited iPec, Energy Leadership Index, Master Practitioner, Certified Run Coach, Positive Psychology Coach, Certified Yoga Instructor, and Leadership from Center for Creative Leadership.
