Lead With Intention™
My professional practice, Lead With Intention™, consists of a unique blend of Professional Coaching, Organizational Training, and Team Facilitation. Specializing in strengths-based leadership and applied positive psychology, I support clients across all domains of business and life – from creative entrepreneurs wanting to uplevel their leadership to individuals desiring more meaning and fulfillment in their lives.
Over the past decade, I have worked in various organizational environments from worldwide corporations like Nike to higher education institutions and grassroots start-ups. I engage with leaders at all stages of their development to help them gain more self-awareness and confidence. Whether we’re coaching together or creating organizational transformation, I aim to leave you with a fresh perspective, new skills, and renewed energy. Here’s some more information on how we can work together and results you can expect.
And A Free Gift!
I recently published a new book on the Wholehearted Leadership Revolution.
How I Got Started
As a child, I was into everything and always asking questions.
How do seeds turn into flowers?
Why does the sun go to sleep at night?
What makes the airplane stay up in the sky?
This natural curiosity led me to pursue a career doing just that – asking questions in service of evoking transformation in individuals and organizations.
As a Leadership Coach and Culture Consultant, I love working with people to draw out their best and lead them to deeper self-discovery and growth. My style mixes professionalism with play along with a healthy-dose of positivity. While we dig deeper into who you are and where you want to go, we also have a lot of FUN in the process!
Working from a strengths-based perspective, I help you discover how to live each day with more passion, energy, and commitment. I believe each of our lives has abundant potential and purpose, and should be lived fully and lived well. And it’s my mission to do just that. To Lead With Intention™.
Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, I am a two-time UCLA alumna, graduating with my Bachelor’s in Mass Communications (B.A.) and a Master’s of Education (M.Ed.). I am also trained and certified through The Coaches Training Institute, world leaders in coaching and leadership training.
Before becoming a Certified Coach, I worked in higher education at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and UCLA, as well as in Public Affairs at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. I believe in giving back to your local community and have served on the Leadership Team of the NW Coaches Association in Portland and currently volunteer as the TEDx Sacramento Event Coordinator.
As a natural adventure diva, I have set a life goal of visiting at least as many countries as I am years old and have been busy filling up my passport pages! I’ve been to 30 countries as well as living abroad in the Middle East for a year where I volunteered at a local school with her husband, Joel.
When I’m not traveling, coaching, or changing lives, I create original jewelry designs and also enjoy rocking the karaoke stage, taking exotic cooking classes, and practicing yoga. I currently live in Northern California and travel internationally for coaching, organizational trainings, and retreat facilitation.
