I draw on 37 years of leadership experience as well as my total life experience to coach my clients to achieve their goals. Over the course of 19 years in the role of design manager for a large textbook publisher, as I grew and learned, I began to understand the importance of supporting those on my staff find their own way to success. This involved asking questions, so that each staff member could recognize their unique strengths and talents, and how to best apply those talents within a rapidly changing work environment. This led to a great desire in taking this beyond the workplace and helping others reach their goals. I left the corporate setting to pursue this and am now coaching full time, turning my vision into reality.
I am a member of the International Coach Federation (ICF) and a graduate of the Core Essentials Program at Coach University. Previously I graduated in 1977 from Hussian School of Art located in Philadelphia, PA. I worked in the graphics industry in many capacities, from illustrator, production artist, designer, to manager. Artistically, I am now pursuing my love of printmaking and painting.
Our experiences are always at play. They help shape who we are just as who we are is directing the outcome. When we are truly living we notice what we do with these experiences and use them to motivate us.
In his book, Idea Spotting, Sam Harrison asks “Is your life filled with work, or is your work filled with life?”
I ask “Is your life filled with life?”
“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.”
