My Story

For over 25 years, I worked directly in the technology world as a top performing software engineer, engineering manager,  project manager and as a certified professional leadership coach.

Since 2006, I have coached executives, directors, managers and influential employees to build leadership skills and the mental capacity and emotional intelligence needed to navigate successfully through increasingly complex technical and interpersonal workplace challenges. 

I am passionate about supporting and elevating women in tech to thrive in their careers and confidently take on leadership roles. 

In my free time I enjoy hiking with my mini-Goldendoodle, Sammie, in the foothills of my hometown, Boulder, Colorado.

I have been practicing yoga and meditation since 1994. I have been teaching yoga since 2000, and I am an ordained member of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh’s core practice community, the Order of Interbeing.  Work/life balance has always been a priority for me!

My Approach

Communication skills are critical to career success and difficult to master, even for women. While women have a statistical advantage when it comes to acquiring emotional intelligence skills, the average business culture doesn’t always reward them for their natural leadership style. And dealing with conflict in male dominated environments can be especially challenging.

As your coach, I will help you refine your authentic style to lead with confidence. I will help you put “discomfort” in your “comfort zone” so you take on bigger challenges more easily. With my support you will you put overwhelm and your negative inner voice behind you and channel your precious energy into mastering work-life balance.
