The unique power you possess is activated when you discover and develop your intuition.

The world needs more magical leaders. The challenge is we are losing them to burnout, insufficient support, and lack of development. There is also frustration with existing leadership operating from seriously outdated playbooks. I believe we can overcome these challenges by gaining perspective and support. Together we can build your confidence and tap into your potential. I provide guidance to leaders in discovering, defining, and developing their authentic leadership style by relying on their instinct.


It is a common belief that people should maintain two identities; that your "work self" and "home self" should be different. In reality we are complex humans with many emotions and dimensions. My belief is these identities are one in the same and should not be considered separate.

Moving away from the idea that there is a standard blueprint for leaders to follow opens the door for creativity and authenticity. Simply put, it's time to humanize leaders. When you empower leaders to be empathetic, relatable, and allow space for trial and error it creates a healthy environment for people to thrive.

To understand people leadership, we need to spend the time to really understand ourselves. In order to get the most out of our time together you will need to be open and vulnerable. Prioritizing ourselves can be difficult, therefore you must be ready to dedicate the time in and out of our sessions to do the work. This type of work is a journey that will continue far beyond our time together. Meaningful growth takes time. I will help create the foundation and it's up to you to keep going.

We have to find a holistic balance to how we approach people leadership as the decisions we make impact people on many levels. My core philosophy is that effective leaders rely on their intuition and spend time frequently reflecting in order to grow. Leadership is unique to the individual, which is why I tailor 1-1 sessions to keep the focus on you.
