After a successful, 9 year legal practice, I realized I was rising fast in a profession that no longer inspired me. While practicing full time, I pursued a coaching certification with the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching to help successful, mid-career professionals take a long-term, strategic approach to their career.
I received my JD from Northwestern University School of Law. I practiced in the Corporate group at Mayer Brown’s office in Chicago, in-house at Kraft Foods, and was the first and only US counsel for a multi-billion dollar energy services company in Denver, CO. I am a Certified Professional Coach with the International Coach Federation.
I help successful professionals get serious about their careers and take a more active approach to getting the career and practice they want.
In 2018, I transitioned to a new role with Diversity Lab, where I am excited to be serving as the lead coach for the OnTrack for Sponsorship pilot program.
First and foremost, I consider coaching a partnership. My work is to hold my clients accountable to what they say they want to achieve, help them develop strategies and habits to get to where they want to be and assist in overcoming obstacles in their way. I expect my clients to engage in the work in between sessions to get the most out of our relationship, which could include any number of action items and homework we discuss in our sessions.
I typically only engage with my client.
Engagement! As a client, you must be committed to the process and to doing the work in between our sessions to help you achieve your goals.
