Who I Am

I’m a natural collaborator, and a champion for what’s possible……

Emerging

I connect people, ideas, values, possibilities and actions.  I naturally look for patterns, possibilities and intersections.  I am passionate about working with people to show up more fully in their personal leadership; to understand and access not only their strengths and values, but also the wisdom and resources of their body. My somatic approach to my work is about engaging you as a whole person – body, mind and spirit – in showing up as a powerful leader in your life. I operate from a deep belief that we are all leaders, regardless of the jobs we do.  Leadership is not what we do; it’s who we are being while we’re doing it.

Over the past fifteen years, I have worked with executives, social entrepreneurs, activists, youths, parents, and many others to help them connect with their personal leadership.  Drawing on leadership models based in values, emotional intelligence, and powerful communication frameworks I have designed and delivered leadership development programs, and coached, mentored, and advised leaders.  At the same time, I have led women, around the world, to connect to their personal power and embody their greatness through dance and movement.

What I have learned over the years is that leadership is inseparable from the body; and the neuroscience research backs this up.  We are far more effective in our lives – and therefore as leaders – when we are fully integrated, rather than compartmentalized and disconnected.

I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach with a Masters Degree in Human Systems Intervention as well as certifications in Myers-Briggs, True Colors, and EQ in Action.  I am also certified as a Somatic Yoga and Dance Teacher.
