Professionalism and Experience

 "I can do all things through Jesus Christ who strengthens me" 

~ Philippians 4:13

As a professionally trained and experienced executive and leader in both secular and religious organizations, as well as a professional and personal coach, I have the tools and understanding to help you create the career and life you imagine and get a renewed sense of self.  

Support for the Journey

My goal is to help you re-imagine your professional and personal life the way God predestined for you.  With nearly 20 years of extensive experience in management, leadership, and coaching, my individualized positive approach will help you attain your goals.  

Taking the Steps

"Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!"

~ Psalm 90-17 

Committing to a higher level of professional growth and personal lifestyle is just that – a commitment, and it’s a big one that will take a lot of dedication and support.  My commitment is to provide you with accountability, understanding and support.

Tools you need to flourish at life

I want to empower you to be your best self in all aspects of life.  I provide friendly and constructive advice to help you reach your fullest potential.

Take control and become your best self

I will help you realize your professional and personal goals and together we will create a road map to not only reach them but accomplish much more.

Prioritize your time and relationships

Work-Life balance can be stressful.  I want to give you the advice and tools you need to maximize your professional and personal relationships, and give yourself the care and time you deserve.


what can a Professional and life coach do for me?

A professional and personal life coach can support you in finding and staying on your path.  By building a relationship with my clients, I can help you stay motivated and on-task, helping you move toward your long term far-reaching goals.

What kind of commitment do I need to make?

Every client jointly signs a commitment contract with their coach.  I will create the terms of your personalized commitment contract based on your individual goals and plans. 

How do we get started?

The first step is to schedule a free 30-minute introductory session.  In that session, we will get an idea of how well we work together and what our next steps should be from there.
