You have not lived a perfect day, even though you’ve earned your money, unless you have done something for someone who will never be able to repay you.”

Why did you become a coach?

Because “telling” doesn’t always make sense. I am naturally a developer of people and a maximizer of processes, so people have sought my advice on getting things done. But when you need to stretch yourself to get to the next level or to reach your goals, or need to modify something you’re doing that’s holding you back, being told how to do something doesn’t have the same impact as having a coach walking alongside you to work through the experiences that are necessary for your growth.

Is there a particular lens through which you approach your coaching?

Every person is capable of exploring options, choosing paths, taking action, being resilient and moving forward. I come to my coaching work with respect for my clients’ capabilities, believing I can help them develop strategies from within in order to reach their personal and professional goals. Through my curiosity, caring and humor, I work with attorneys to illuminate, examine and challenge behaviors, perspectives, attitudes and assumptions that are helping or hindering their progress.

What do you see as the key benefits coaching provides?

Coaching can lead to real, lasting change that will have an impact on the client’s full life. I enjoy working with attorneys around transition points in their careers, including preparing for promotions and excelling in their new roles, developing strengths as a leader, manager and coach, how to build a practice with deep client relationships and how to integrate and collaborate more effectively with partners, associates and support staff. I also coach on time/life/workload management and communication skills (improving presentation, impact, personal effectiveness and image) and dealing with specific interpersonal challenges.

What makes you a successful coach?

I extend to my clients what I want for myself: a full and fulfilling life. I get there through a style that is direct, empathetic, intuitive and action-oriented. I am both supportive and challenging, and I love to laugh.
