About Me

Born in England, I lived the nomadic lifestyle of a military family, moving from town to town and country to country. As a young adult I traveled while working in the British Diplomatic Corps, eventually settling in Belize at the age of 25. Throughout a life of transition, I have journeyed from: loneliness to building strong new relationships, independence to interdependence, trying to fit in to authenticity, wondering what life is all about to understanding purpose in life and, faith in God.

PASSIONATE ABOUT COACHING

I have 20 years of management experience in the areas of Corporate Services, Administration, Human Resources, and Corporate Governance, having been certified as a Leading Professional in Ethics and Compliance. It is in these fields that I awakened to the deeper part of me born to connect with people and positively contribute to their life. It is also where I gained a wealth of knowledge in Employee Engagement and Corporate Culture Development.

Proverbs 29:18 – Where there is no vision the people perish

My experiences have produced a deep appreciation for the power of purpose and a vision as well as the performance cycle. While a certain level of success may have been achieved, the performance cycle across the business and leadership spectrums includes occasionally being stuck in thought patterns that limit our ability to go to the next level, hold us back from risk or decision making and cause us to perform below the high standard that we are known for.

Like others, I have been in that place where my engine labored vs. ran at peak performance! While I would have had some tweaks and repairs along the road, I actually experienced my own engine overhaul through training as a certified professional coach at the International Coach Academy as well as through coaching others and being coached. This experience caused me to get clear on my vision and purpose and caused me to come to a deep appreciation for having a success partner/coach.

A coach offers a safe-space to dream-storm and provides an accountability structure of my own choosing. This is akin to new spark plugs, replacing air filters, adding top grade lube, and working with my trusted mechanic to ensure everything is synchronized. In reflecting, I recognize there are many people who have turbocharged my life over the years, people who have always seen the best in me, had confidence and faith in me, even when I did not have it in myself. Coaching is my way of returning the compliment, kindness, and immense support provided by others. More importantly, coaching is me coming home to my calling!

Values

Caring

I am known for caring. Driven by caring, I am also known for challenging others to live their best life! It is in the caring, safe space of coaching that clients explore the deeper part of themselves, create awareness, identify thought patterns that support them or hold them back, as well as recognize vulnerabilities and build new strengths.

Direct Communication

I listen, I am bold, willing to question and approach areas outside of the comfort zone. I share observations and offer feedback in the service of expressed goals. Clients find my approach thought provoking and, as a result, often experience a-ha moments that lead to new and empowering perspectives.

Trust

Confidentiality and integrity are non-negotiable in a coaching contract with me. I am a member of and work within the ICF (International Coach Federation) Code of Ethics. I am committed to offering a judgment free space. It is a privilege to partner with, and support clients to build trust, grow in confidence, gain clarity of vision & purpose, work to achieve peak performance.

My role is to support clients to align their goals, decisions and actions with their vision & core values, that they may be congruent all areas of life. Together, we develop structures that sustain alignment. I encourage forward movement, as clients gain motivation by drawing on talents and strengths until momentum is reached.
