Likely because of my former career as an engineer, my clients experience me as much of a consultant as a coach. In working together, I am going to actively get to know you, your business, your team, and your problems in such an in depth way that I will be able to provide thought provoking questions, practical feedback and creative ideas all in service of helping you to obtain your greater goals.
I help high performing individuals discover the value and super power of the soft skills (ie. emotional intelligence) through my unique combination of training in both technical and social sciences. Many of my clients find their career growth limited by underdeveloped soft skills and discover the soft skills are really the hard ones to master. Hard skills + soft skills = boundless success

This sense of not knowing something that seemed so integral to living a fulfilling life started me down a path of expanding my knowledge in the social sciences.
I completed an accredited coach training program and a number of years later went on to graduate with a Masters of Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. At first, I used my coaching skills within my engineering leadership roles, but soon wanted to have a greater impact in being a motivational force for the people and not just in service of the organization’s goals.
