My past professional background includes my former financial advisory practice, my federal regulatory program leadership, and my retail entrepreneurial experience.
As a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®), I advised and coached my clients to define their financial and business goals and carry out the strategies that reflected their unique aspirations, values, and circumstances. Prior to that, with my legal training (JD, Georgetown University), I managed policy and regulatory development for federal automotive safety programs. I also ran a vintage antiques business for many years. In all these fields, I connected with executives, managers, professionals, companies, teams, small groups, and individuals of all ages.
My eclectic career path has put me in a unique position for my solutions-based coaching practice for business professionals. Compared to many coaches, I'm very actively involved in our meetings. I incorporate empathetic listening and ask challenging questions to raise my client's awareness, but I go beyond just listening and reflecting. I also mentor, offer advice, and propose ideas as we craft strategies together to accomplish your goals and kick up your professional and business success.
True accomplishment requires not only insight and awareness but also motivation and drive to make the change happen. I help my clients find their natural internal drive and partner with them as we move toward success. You can be assured I will give my all to help you achieve and go beyond!
