About Me

I coach leaders who want to live and lead more mindfully.

As the Principal and founder of Choice Coaching and Consulting, LLC, I have over twenty-five years of experience empowering others through coaching and consulting. My expertise and passion is in coaching toward more mindful and impactful leadership, enhanced relationships, and greater ease and resilience in work and life. With a style that is compassionate and candid, I support clients in accessing their strengths and learning how to capitalize on them.

Within the context of a trusted coaching relationship, clients are able to expand creativity and resourcefulness, and move through roadblocks to discover greater well-being, confidence and success. Professional and personal relationships improve through deepening awareness of self and impact on others. This process results in a profound effect on contribution and collaboration within the leader’s team and organization.

I value the opportunity to bring mindfulness to organizations as a Certified Mindfulness Teacher.
