Describe your coaching style.

Energy is at the heart of everything, so I bring energy and get curious about the energy that is within each coaching session. We have fun in our sessions, while also digging deep to uncover and build simple strategies specific to the root cause that is holding you back from your fullest potential.

Who is your ideal client and why?

My ideal clients are individuals who are eager to tap into their fullest potential and currently feeling stuck in getting there. I especially enjoy working with highly technical leaders on their emotional intelligence and leadership capabilities.

How do you measure success with a client?

At the beginning of our coaching engagement, we co-create what success will look like at the end of our engagement. Every 2 sessions we will revisit the success criteria we established and discuss where we have/haven’t made progress towards our goals.

What is your coaching superpower?

Deep Listening, Curiosity & Fun
