Meet the Coach   

I’ve always had an interest in how things work. 

As I moved away from my childhood propensity to break things – even as I tried to figure them out – I also became interested in figuring out how to fix what was broken.  

It was not long before my interest turned to people.  What makes us tick?  What slows us down?  Can we be and feel and act more effectively?  I’ve spent my adult life looking both inward and outward, seeking to understand how we do what we do.  

It is this experience and skill-set that I share with my clients, helping them to find and apply their wisdom and understanding so they can move forward in a direction that makes sense for them.  At various times I may act as a guide, motivator, mediator, mirror, or mentor.  

As your coach you can expect me to bring to our work together a love of humor, an Olympic capacity to brainstorm, and a knack for getting to the bottom of things.
