Who you are is how you lead.

The world needs powerful women leaders, now more than ever.  


Across every sector, the modern workplace is broken. Although more women are in executive leadership roles than ever before, they continue to face additional challenges that their male counterparts don’t have to contend with:

  • Ageism in the workplace (at every age)

  • Being the only woman in the room or on the leadership team

  • Impostor syndrome stemming from an unclear career path

  • Navigating office politics loaded with gendered cultural expectations

These challenges can lead to a cycle of overcommitment, overworking, and constantly hustling for a sense of self worth. This cycle negatively impacts, not only your mental and physical health, but your ability to be strategic and intentional in your career path.

In other words: It’s hard to create meaningful impact when you’re teetering on the edge of burnout. 

I work with ambitious, high achieving women who want to create meaningful impact in their work and life. 

When you align your intentions, values and actions, you get to show up powerfully in your work and life. Courage, authenticity, balance, and confidence aren't mythical qualities you're born with - they're skill sets you can develop through practice.

I work with each of my clients to develop a bespoke program that is tailored to their individual goals, experience and career path. We’ll begin with a leadership assessment and values clarification. Then I'll help you build skills and practices by working through real time decisions and challenges that come up in your life and leadership.  

Common areas of exploration include:

  • Assessing impact

  • Giving & receiving feedback

  • Communication and relationships

  • Implementing DEIB principles and policies

  • Avoiding burnout & building resilience

  • Creating culture change

  • Recovering from setbacks

  • Boundaries and accountability
