    Executive Coach & Leadership Consultant





Philosophy & Approach

We are all unique, whole and complex. My passion as a coach and consultant is to aid clients in the recognition and discernment of their irreplaceable agency to navigate whatever challenge is in front of them. With each engagement, I actively listen and discern the client’s needs in order to create a space where sustainable transformation can take place; where clients can look at their inner and outer landscapes, develop resilient plans and execute to a goal through a provided structure and methodology. I approach each relationship with warmth, trust, respect, joy and courage to support clients as they transform their lives and businesses towards their aspirations.

The heart-center of change, as I see it, lies in a leader’s ability to experience healthy vulnerability, setting the tone for their self, team, organization, community and/or family. Brene Brown says from her research, “Vulnerability is the birthplace of creativity, innovation and change.” Whether in technology or a non-profit, I love working with clients to create a container where healthy vulnerability is accepted and the agency of life unfolds in front of clients and progress to a more fulfilled life and business can be experienced.


Formal Education and Training

I am a certified executive coach and leadership consultant bringing over twelve years of leading diverse, global teams through warm and trusting relationships with intention. My career involves experience in operations, organizational management, consulting, technology, product development, and manufacturing. I have successfully worked with clients at all levels of 10 to 20,000 person organizations of various industries through complex business and life challenges such as leadership presence, team performance and development, retirement transitions, career transitions, career development, boundary awareness and implementation, somatic awareness, and general personal development.

I received a Coaching Certification through Hudson Institute of Coaching, an M.B.A. from Portland State University and a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Oregon State University. In my free time, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my wife and two children, snowboarding, skiing, walking, running, reading and writing. I love to learn and believe that the best is yet to come.
