After over 10 years of working with thousands of people across a variety of professional levels, industries and cultures around capitalizing on their strengths, my coaching specialty is working with people in business – individuals, professionals, team leaders, and executives – to help them gain an appreciation for why focusing on their strengths can make a huge difference in their lives and the lives of those around them. As a Gallup certified StrengthsFinder® coach, I continue to be a huge advocate for coaching others around how their talents, attitudes, beliefs and values can significantly contribute to their success in their work, their interpersonal relationships, and in their lives.
My professional background includes over 25 years in both Fortune 500 and entrepreneurial organizations where I worked in a variety of leadership roles. I have a Master’s in Organizational Behavior, am a Georgetown University certified leadership coach, and am a Professional Certified Coach through the International Coach Federation. In 2001, I became a Gallup certified StrengthsFinder® coach. I founded Transforming Strengths, LLC in order to coach and empower people to discover their potential and transform how they use their strengths for maximum success in work and in life.
On a more personal note, I am fortunate to be able to spend my time working with people and companies both in the United States and globally. My home base is in the U.S. on the East Coast. When I work in Europe, I am often based near Milan, Italy where my husband and I have an apartment in an old, restored villa overlooking Lake Maggiore. During my personal time, I enjoy being out in nature or being near the water, traveling and exploring new places, and spending time with my husband, family and friends.
