As a marine geophysicist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration leading international projects to map the ocean floor, it became clear to me that the amount of science that got done wasn’t based on how smart and experienced people were or how much money was available. Instead, success or failure depended on the way the people on our project and leadership teams interacted and operated. The more tension, politics and confusion, the more time we wasted and the less we got done. Why were we letting this happen?
This insight led me on a journey of collecting training and earning certifications in facilitation, mediation and team and individual coaching. After leading an effort to bring a team based software development approach to our office, I became an Agile team coach and was officially hooked! I had found my passion and have never looked back. I left my leadership role in geophysics behind for a new position as an organizational coach focused on creating a culture where people can’t wait to come to work.
I have deep experience in one-on-one, project and leadership team coaching, training, leadership development and facilitation. I bring passion, intuition and a direct approach to everything I do. My coaching philosophy is Vulnerability = Freedom. Freedom to fully show up. Freedom to make an impact. Freedom to experience joy and connection.
