Master of Science in Coaching Psychology

I like to think of coaching as a "thinking partnership" or a collaboration. I'm here to help you grasp the bigger picture, challenge assumptions, call attention to the blindspots, reframe unhelpful conclusions, and celebrate the successes (big and small).

Book Single Session

I am an executive coach with more than 600 hours of advanced training from the University of Sydney (a world-ranked top 50 school) where I completed a Masters of Science in Coaching Psychology in 2015. With 7+ years experience coaching business professionals, I work with senior managers, individual contributors, and multi-national teams, helping them adapt in change environments, develop new ways of communicating with each other, cultivate their strengths, and build influential relationships with their peers. Some of my clients have worked in public service, non-profits, leading tech industries, and healthcare. They've been HR directors, engineers, lawyers, marketing professionals, and product managers.

In coaching, I facilitate goal setting and reflection with my members in three key areas: self-regulation, resiliency and resourcefulness. I help my members set goals, reflect on the learning process, integrate new data into their ever-evolving perspectives, bounce back from disappointments, identify new ways forward, and support them through this goal-driven transformation. I will help you navigate through complex situations and be your thought partner no matter the circumstance.

In my previous career as a learning and organizational development specialist, I developed training courses and directed a performance management program for 500+ employees at one of Australia's largest media enterprises. I now specialize in helping busy people in technology, human resources and sales to direct their own learning path and take ownership of their professional development. With experience working and living in the USA, Korea, China, Vietnam, and Australia, I love bringing my expertise in cultural intelligence to the table and helping my members with multi-national and virtual teams learn to collaborate from a culturally skilled perspective.

I live in Seattle so my free time is usually spent outdoors hiking, biking, or swimming. The last books I read were Brene Brown's "Braving the Wilderness", Amy Poehler's "Yes Please", and Neil deGrasse Tyson's "Astrophysics for People in a Hurry."
