“Why not go out on a limb? Isn’t that where the fruit is?”


About Me

I coach leaders who want to live and lead in alignment with their highest values and aspirations.

As the Principal and founder of Choice Coaching and Consulting, LLC, I have over twenty-five years of experience partnering with leaders in their growth and development. My expertise and passion are rooted in excitement for the potential in each of us to be more mindful and impactful leaders, to enhance our relationships, and to experience greater ease and resilience in work and life. With a style that is compassionate and candid, I work with clients to recognize and build on their strengths.

Within the context of a trusted coaching relationship, clients expand their 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 one’s impact on others. Leaders, along with their teams and organizations, benefit from profound and meaningful shifts in collaboration and contribution.

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