I have more than 20+ years of partnering with fast-paced, uniquely-cultured organizations as a leader, coach, and organizational development professional. Working extensively in advertising, entertainment, hospitality, technology, start-up aerospace, and telecom industries, creating programs and other interventions that are practical, strategic and culturally aligned.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s in Behavior Change. Additionally I have several certifications in Positive Psychology (Happiness), Executive Coaching, Assessments, Health Behaviors and Adult Learning.
For fun, I love to learn, cook, entertain, and spend time with friends and family. I currently live in the mid-Wilshire area with my brilliant and adorable 5-year-old son, Noah, and my sweet (and slightly neurotic) terrier, Jakey.
I am an executive coach and leadership development consultant with 25+ years’ experience as a human resources operating executive and most recently an independent practitioner. My approach is highly customized, authentic, compassionate, and results-oriented, positioning workplace and individual challenges as engagement opportunities for internal transformation and values alignment. I help leaders advance their personal and professional development using principles of positive psychology, mindfulness, EQ and high performance. I help companies develop the people, processes, and systems needed to accelerate performance.
I have been the top HR leader for Virgin Entertainment, Electronic Arts, Virgin Galactic, and Califia Farms. I have leveraged my human resources Operations and leadership coaching experience at companies spanning multiple industries including tech, film, videogames, music, space, aviation, consumer packaged goods, and mission-based organizations.
I am a vegan, environmentalist, animal lover, and a passionate yogi. I come from a place of deep listening, curiosity, and openness which shows up in my coaching. I live in Pasadena with my husband, tweenaged daughter, and rescue dog Roxy. My future farm is in progress in Sequim, Washington where one day I aspire to facilitate coaching and mindfulness retreats among the beauty of the Olympic Peninsula. Dreams do become reality and I’m here to support yours!
Our greatest passion is helping people and organizations understand their strengths, achieve sustainable happiness and well-being, removing obstacles and ultimately reach their full potential.
