One of my greatest joys in life is watching the leaders and teams I work with ignite the brilliance within them. I have built a truly fulfilling career as a leadership development consultant and coach at Target, a Fortune 50 retailer, where I coach leaders and design and facilitate leadership programs and team interventions on topics such as influence, team effectiveness, leading change, meaningful conversations, prioritization, cross-functional collaboration, and innovation. I also work as an independent coach and leadership development practitioner, now having trained and coached hundreds of leaders in dozens of organizations across five continents, including General Mills, General Electric, Best Buy, and Target. I have also served as Adjunct Faculty for the University of St. Thomas Executive Education Program. I’m a voracious learner and love that my work compels me to invest in my own development and then pay it forward to my clients. I received a Masters in Organization Development and Change as well as a Graduate Certificate in Executive Coaching from the University of St. Thomas. I am a certified Associate Professional Coach (ACC) through the International Coach Federation. I’m also certified in Hogan Assessments, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), The Leadership Circle Profile, FIRO-B, and Influence Style Inventory, and I’ve completed advanced studies in Adult Development Theory.
Today I partner with organizations looking for a practitioner who sees the interconnections between business results and human potential and knows how to seamlessly accelerate both. I quickly build credibility and trust, get curious about what’s really needed in each situation, then use deep listening, provocative questions, and curated experiences to launch leaders to higher heights. The work I find most rewarding is coaching high-potential leaders who are hungry to do their inner work and facilitating small-group sessions with leaders who want to dig deep and transform in community.
