Bridging my various experiences as a former professional sailor, healthcare business owner, and Executive Coach and Leadership educator, I influence others to think bigger and achieve results. I conduct leadership training workshops, lead team, executive board and manager seminars to develop leaders, leverage individual and team strengths, build partnerships, resolve conflicts, maximize performance and increase engagement levels.
I earned a Bachelor of Science from Central Michigan University and graduate studies in Leadership Development from Saint Louis University. Member of ICF. I continue to serve as Chief Human Resource Officer, Leadership Development Practice Lead and Executive Leadership Coach for The Audit Group, Inc. As a business owner, I am a practitioner of the models I teach and coach.
I chose three world-class servant leadership models because they are intuitive, sustainable, and based on positive psychology, integrating the heart, head and hands of leadership. My coaching approach utilizes the combined 150 years of research and science from Ken Blanchard’s Situational Leadership® II, Wiley Everything DiSC Workplace and GALLUP – StrengthsFinder.
