LinkedIn Profile

I began my legal career in 2000, first clerking for a federal judge and then practicing as a BigLaw corporate associate. In 2007, I enrolled in an intensive coach training program and began to coach other lawyers, focusing on their goals in the areas of professional success, leadership, managing others, business development, effective communication and well-being. My coaching style is direct, and I stand in the perspective that you are ready and able to take on the challenge of designing the life that you want. I also believe that coaching should be enjoyable, even fun, and I bring humor and a touch of lightness to the work that we do together.
