My life’s mission is to 

  change the     trajectory of

  the world,


            about me…

My Story

My life’s mission includes a desire to change the trajectory of the world, now. I’ve worked in organizations for over 20 years in hopes of changing the world. My hope was to improve systems, raise money, change laws and put great people in positions of power. It took 20 years as a great strategist to fully realize the most effective way to change the world is by changing one person’s trajectory. If I help you to be magical, you will help someone else, and so on.

So when I came across the coaching discipline, I realized I had been informally practicing it for years. During those years of helping others to be great in government, non-profit, and for-profit organizations, I could point to the fruit of my labor. The fruit wasn’t the institutions, systems, conferences, policies, I created. The fruit of my labor was the people I coached.

I am a transformational growth strategist, #OperationGrowthCoach. I help you strategize your own personal development and growth. My coaching mirrors not only what I have done for others, but how I reimagined and strategized my own transformational growth over and over again.

I’m here in service of a changed world by working with you. So sign up, already.

The world is waiting.
