Building Emotionally intelligent, high-performance HAPPY, individuals & organizations is my jam. Working with people to live their best life is my goal!

I am a Leadership Development Coach and Trainer, and highly revered as an Certified Emotional Intelligence Specialist with a warm, dynamic, and impactful approach to my coaching, facilitation and speaking engagements. As a former Associate Director of Engagement and Leadership, Advising and Career Services, I have dedicated almost two decades in my passion-driven career, to the personal, professional and leadership development of individuals and organizations, with the mission of furthering Positive Forward Motion in the *FAST lane by addressing the ultimate triple bottom line (Personal, Interpersonal and Professional success).

I am proud to say I am one of few Leadership Development Master Practitioners with the expertise and certification to administer and facilitate both the Energy Leadership Index (ELI) Assessment and the Emotional Intelligence Assessment (EQi-2.0) both recognized by Forbes in their top 10 as must take assessments for Professionals/Leaders. With this unique and specialized approach, I work with individuals and teams to identify strengths, triggers, and development areas, to deliver elevated results, fuel positivity and foster engagement.

Working with individuals and organizations looking to increase their leadership capacity is my niche. Building emotionally-intelligent high performing skilled professionals, leaders, and organizations is my mission. Fostering awareness of self and others, optimizing individual and collective Emotional Intelligence, and increasing mindfulness, adaptability and stress tolerance is my deliverable. 

With a Masters degree in Organizational Leadership (MAOL), Designation as a Certified Professional Coach (CPC), an ACC professional designation by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), and an immeasurable passion for personal, professional and leadership development, I have led countless individuals and organizations to understand themselves deeper, build confidence, and healthy assertiveness, as well as develop a framework for stress management and emotional self-regulation in the busyness and stress of life. I work to foster leadership of self and others, in order to increase happiness, engagement, and empathy, while decreasing self-doubt, anxiety, and interpersonal stress.  

My approach is rooted in positive psychology, and aims to support the healthy development of balance between self and others, personal and professional and, work and life. I take pride in ensuring anyone investing their precious time in me, leaves feeling supported, that they have added to their personal and professional success toolkit, literally and metaphorically, and feel empowered about their next steps.
