Coaching & Advising
I am passionate about empowering women to have the lives—and the impact—they want. And that includes supporting female entrepreneurs who are building purpose-driven businesses created to help them do just that.
I've been thrilled to leverage my extensive senior-level management and startup experience as an advisor to early-stage start-ups, including CPA Moms, Goalsetter and Haldi—each of which are founded and run by women. I also provide one-on-one leadership and performance coaching to a select group of female clients, primarily entrepreneurs and senior leaders.
In an effort to provide a broader range of tools to those I coach and advise, I completed the Hudson Institute of Coaching’s LifeForward program in the summer of 2020. I also earned my Leadership and Performance Coaching certification through Brown University and ACT Leadership in April 2021.
