About Me

I help business leaders stay relevant and sustain momentum.
I have the privilege of walking with executives and their teams as they explore tangible, long-term growth in their business(es).

My goal is to help you bridge gaps between knowing, doing and desired outcomes. As a passionate researcher, I am always on the hunt for knowledge that will unlock potential in my clients and help them remain on the cutting edge of their field.

I oversee the IDM School of Coaching, which is closely connected with Myles Downey, and combine Inner Game Theory with a results-orientated approach that turns intent into implementation and promotes choices that trigger creativity and intrinsic motivation.
