Who I am in a nutshell
After a decade of leadership in a Fortune 200 company, I came to my own crossroad in my development as a leader and in choosing the life I wanted to lead.
It was during this time of decision making and professional growth that I benefited from the valuable teaching, mentoring, and coaching of an executive coach. This experience was truly a game changer for my career and in developing my leadership abilities. When the time came to leave this company I followed my passion and became a certified coach and went back to school for a second Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership. Energized by this work, I simultaneously launched my executive coaching and strategic facilitation practice.
What inspires my work
There is an artistic quality in my work that comes from growing up as a first generation American of French parents. My father was an entrepreneur, a culinary artist and a watercolorist. As a child and young adult I was surrounded by an appreciation of the art of conversation and the power of visual artistry to communicate. Now, this appreciation winds its way into elegant design of strategic conversations and in the visual tools that I use to facilitate and document meetings and conversations.
One of my greatest influencers for creating organizations where humans thrive, are my martial arts teachers. In my training as an executive coach and in organizational effectiveness, I found the application of aikido principles through Leadership Embodiment to have the most transformational value for my clients. In a few sessions of Leadership Embodiment coaching, my clients experience insights that are directly applicable to their work and are able to immediately practice more skillful communication with their colleagues and teams.
