As a coach, I am here to help you gain clarity and work toward your goals with support and accountability, so you can accomplish what you want more effectively and with greater ease. I combine practical, analytical skills I developed as a lawyer with the powerful art of coaching to help guide you in reaching your next level in your career and personal life. I am also available to work with organizations and present workshops on various topics, including communication skills, mindfulness, work/life balance, time management, career development, executive presence, interview skills, and more.
Coaching is designed to help you clarify your priorities and goals and work toward them more quickly and with greater ease, enhance decision-making, reduce stress, and manage your time more efficiently so you can be more effective and fulfilled.
Imagine being able to:
- better handle conflict and navigate workplace issues that may disrupt your productivity and add stress;
- understand yourself and others better and communicate more effectively;
- enhance your executive presence and be more confident, positive, and calm;
- experience greater satisfaction in your career and in life beyond work.
Uncover and remove obstacles that may be standing in your way. Discover and address what's draining your time and energy and adding stress. Stay on track and moving toward your goals with built in accountability. Improve your work-life balance.
While practicing law at a top, international law firm, I discovered my true zone of genius and my passion: coaching, guiding, and serving as a catalyst for others to have powerful insights that open the door to growth. Now, I combine the analytical and strategic problem-solving skills I developed as a lawyer with the art of life coaching to create a transformative coaching experience focused on helping you take your personal and/or professional life to the next level.
What I enjoy most about coaching is witnessing the ah-hah moments when something clicks for a client, strategizing and serving as a sounding board, holding space for others to process their ideas and connect with their own inner wisdom and their greatness, and facilitating creative problem-solving.
After earning my J.D. from the University of Illinois College of Law, magna cum laude, I practiced in the litigation department of Winston & Strawn LLP's Chicago office. I then trained with CoachU, the leading global provider of coach training programs. I also serve as a Senior Recruiter at a boutique legal search company in Chicago. When I'm not coaching or recruiting, you can find me roller skiing along the lakefront path or at a local forest preserve, journaling my thoughts, reading a personal development book at home, or spending quality time with family and friends.
