My interest in coaching began many years ago as I was deciding on the next steps in my own career. Since 2007, I have coached professionals seeking to advance or change careers, staying on top of emerging job trends to help clients identify and achieve their goals.
I bring my deep curiosity, knowledge of a wide variety of industries and functions, as well as my compassion and sense of humor to my work as a career and executive coach. My clients appreciate that I meet them exactly where they are and tailor my techniques to address their unique needs and interests. They frequently comment on my ability to ask thought-provoking questions and provide encouragement during periods of change. My creativity and resourcefulness help clients embrace their own opportunities for growth while strategically navigating the complexities of work and life today.
In addition to my work as a career coach, I enjoy being a manager and serving as an Associate Director at UC Davis, where I lead a portfolio of continuing and professional education programs in business and technology. These programs promote skills development in data visualization, web development and design, project management, business analysis, human resource management, coaching for life and work, fundraising, accounting, and other high-demand fields.
I have 15 years’ experience designing high-quality learning experiences in a variety of professional and academic areas, including health care management and leadership, psychology, and early childhood and K-12 education.
My pursuits in life and work have provided a wealth of experiences across the globe, and I have learned a lot by running my own business, working in large international companies, and contributing to the success of small locally owned and operated businesses.
A lifelong learner, I earned my Master’s degree in Human Development and Psychology from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and my Bachelor’s degree in Sociology at UCLA. I completed training in coaching with the Coaches Training Institute and have participated in the University of California Management Development Program.
