Executive & Leadsrship Career Coach | "Red Cape Rescue: Save Your Career Without Leaving Your Job"

Innovative yet practical, creative yet structured, fun yet results-focused, I strive to be known and remembered for one key result — helping leaders get more life out of work.

With a unique mix of perspectives, passions and practice as an ICF credentialed coach, professional speaker, blogger and author, I founded the Red Cape Revolution ( as a way to inspire all of us to rediscover our own superpowers, bring them to our work, and make a bigger difference in their corner of the world.

My latest book is “Red Cape Rescue: Save Your Career Without Leaving Your Job.” If it’s time to take control of your life at work and thrive once again, you’ll want to check it out now at

I also teach and facilitate leaders’ groups inside organizations, focusing on learning how to advocate for their own careers, gain clarity on their future paths, and communicate better with teams and colleagues.

I’d love to help you and your colleagues create new ways to improve your experiences at work in ways that work in our real lives, inside our real organizations, in real time.
