I have worked as an Executive Coach, Business Coach, Assimilation Coach and Personal/Professional Development Coach, with individuals in a variety of settings helping them develop successful strategies and achieve a more fulfilling personal and/or professional life. With over 18 years’ experience in areas such as leadership development, management, peak performance, conflict resolution, customer service and employee relations, I have assisted individuals in becoming the best at what they desire. I have a broad range of experience in the business and organizational arena, working with large corporations as well as entrepreneurs, small businesses and non-profit companies. Some of the organizations I have worked within include, Universal Weather, CHRISTUS Health, United Surgical Partners International, Bacardi Rum as well as several privately owned businesses.
As a coach, I value the process of working with individuals to identify their strengths and increase their emotional commitment to realizing their personal and professional goals. I am passionate about helping people improve their self-awareness and I support them in developing a personalized plan to achieve a clear concept of their future.
With a background in organizational psychology and personal development, I work to guide administration and management in developing a clear and shared vision, one in which all levels of staff take ownership. I believe a shared vision facilitates improved productivity, effective teamwork, strong communication and increased morale. My educational background and experience allow me the capability of understanding the complexities of an organization moving with precision to establish effective interventions. Through assessment, goal identification, development of action plans and coaching, I am dedicated to assisting individuals with identifying ways to facilitate change, build robust teams, and identify and leverage personal and professional strengths to create a solid working foundation for the future.
Currently, I have over 15 years of experience in public speaking, program design and workshop development. In the past I have presented in communities, developed and taught community programs, and have also taught at a college level for Southern Idaho Community College and Boise State University Graduate School. I am passionate about learning and enjoy engaging individuals and groups in the learning process whether it be for personal or professional outcomes.
My educational background includes a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work, a Graduate of the College of Executive Coaching, and I am certified as a Coach in Social and Emotional Intelligence. At the present time, I am also a member of the International Coaching Federation and the International Positive Psychology Association.
