“We are all born to lead, yet it’s only when you intentionally develop your leadership skills that you become an exceptional leader.”

After decades developing leaders in the fields of education and the non-profit sector, I’ve found many of my students and clients simply needed a little support to bring forward their internal leader. This belief propelled me to found the Center for Learning Leaders, where leadership is intentional.

The Center for Learning Leaders is for both emerging and experienced leaders and their teams. In addition to one-on-one coaching, I enjoy leading interactive, purpose-centered leadership events. In all the work I do, I integrate the belief that we have the tools to care for ourselves and others, we simply need to identify them and intentionally integrate them into our lives.

I encourage all my clients to be learning leaders so I make sure to never stop learning myself. The majority of my research focuses on social learning theory with my current work revolving around Communities of Practice, a progressive leadership and learning model.

Since I believe that leadership is innate in all people, I work alongside you to purposefully develop your unique leadership skills. If we decide to form a coaching partnership, we’ll focus on your beliefs, your purpose, as well as the tools and partnerships available to you so you can consistently produce exceptional outcomes.
