Life/Leadership Coach and Consultant
I am as a consultant and certified coach for both individuals and organizations.
My primary focus includes leadership, professional and organizational development, board development and governance, strategic planning, and helping leaders and organizations address strategic and operational challenges. I currently serve as a consultant and leadership coach supporting CEOs, boards of directors, and staff of the 27 YMCA associations in NH, ME, and VT.
I worked in YMCA operations for 10 years, most recently as chief operating officer for the largest YMCA in NH. Prior to that, I spent 10 years in the field of systems thinking and organizational learning, serving as senior project manager and publications director at Pegasus Communications. There, I helped organizational leaders and their companies by developing tools and resources focused on leading-edge topics in organizational development. At Pegasus, I launched a new book publishing business and a newsletter, Leverage Points: News and Ideas for the Organizational Learner.
I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach® (CPCC) through CTI, the world’s leading and longest-standing provider of coaching training. I have also served as adjunct faculty in marketing, business communications, and creative writing at Southern New Hampshire University and New England College. I am very focused on helping others achieve their largest and most expansive lives. For fun, I enjoy writing, playing competitive doubles tennis, traveling, and Bikram and other forms of yoga.
I have a BA from the University of New Hampshire and an MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College. My poems have been twice nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and my writing has been published in The Concord Monitor, The Orange Room Review, Moon City Review, Paren(thesis), Boston Literary Magazine, Bop Dead City, NH Troubadour, Entelechy International, Limestone, Leverage Points, and The Systems Thinker.
