Bio

Becky has 30+ years of experience in the IT industry as a leader developing individuals and teams across all levels in the banking, retail, technology, and consulting sectors. As a liberal arts major, she accidentally fell into the software world when she joined Microsoft as a member of the original MS Outlook team. Since then, Becky has helped many multidisciplinary teams and executives at companies like Nike, Starbucks HQ, Kaiser, and Columbia Sportswear improve clarity and leadership. She employs professional and credentialed coaching methodologies from the Co-Active Training Institute and the International Coaching Federation (and is also a professional Agile coach).

Becky is an expert at helping mid-career professionals navigate career and life changes. Her proactive and purposeful communication style supports people through awareness, strategic planning, and activation to reach important goals. Becky particularly enjoys helping female professionals find their voice - she has been there and knows the challenges (though she can easily and enthusiastically coach men as well).Becky's clients say she builds rapport easily, is direct without being forceful, combines intuition with effective techniques, and provides coaching that results in tangible outcomes. Humor and empathy are liberally applied.
