your life strategy coach

“I believe to have a real impact in work and life, you have to bring 100% of yourself to the table.”

Let’s talk about what will multiply your leadership and team success.

Life Strategy Coaching

Again, everything you need to ace your world is already inside of you. Sometimes we hit a new wall or abrupt change that makes us wonder if we’re on the right track. Life Strategy Coaching walks you through a process of being clear on your innate talents, see yourself through the lens of others and design a forward strategy that’s synchronous with your soul.

My expertise was born of experience. I’ve worked in several industries and navigated career changes, layoffs and the unexpected termination, complete with that humiliating escort from the building. My healing from those experiences was the incubator for Life Strategy Design.

You might be needing outplacement coaching or you might just be trying to navigate your career path. Either way, this coaching program will equip you with the clarity, courage and confidence to be the person you’re created to be.

Don’t just take my word for it.
