Seasoned Professional with a Blended Background
As an entrepreneur and leader, National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC), Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach (FMCHC) and Food & Spirit Practitioner, I have a depth and breadth of expertise and experience in both business and science-based health coaching.
My journey began over 20 years ago when I first became a professional transformation and leadership coach. It was then that I found a deep passion for helping people become who they most want to be - in life and work - personally and professionally. To that end, as a Genspire Coach, I can help you achieve your highest vision of yourself and your work by bringing all of my expertise in change and transformation, business and leadership, plus functional health and wellness.
Transformative Health Coaching
Today, leading-edge sciences connect positive psychology, epigenetics and other scientific disciplines in amazing new ways that can transform your experience of life and work. I have blended my professional coaching and development experience with modalities highly informed by these sciences. To that end, I hold certifications for the highest standards of science-based health coaching, lifestyle medicine and plant-based nutrition.
I work with entrepreneurs, leaders and professionals to:
- Balance an optimal stress response
- Create healthy and sustainable flow
- Develop stronger mind-body-brain awareness and connection
- Potentially heal chronic conditions or pain
- Build transformative resilience
My early career began in marketing, communications and business which helped me recognize my love for building new ventures from the ground up. Yet, I discovered long ago that I’m even more passionate about helping people. Thus, came the inspiration to focus my marketing and business acumen with my passion for people into the talent management and leadership industry.
In business, my expertise focuses on developing people as individuals and teams. I specialize in:
- Executive-level Business Coaching
- Leadership Development
- Business Development & Key Relationships
- Recruitment, hiring & talent management
- Strategic HR Transformation
- Team Culture & Employer Branding
I have comprehensive experience in coaching leaders through creative problem solving and transitioning environments, including start-up, high growth, and mergers & acquisitions.
