About me

My professional coaching journey began in 2016 – initially, in an effort to become a better Agile Coach.

In the two years that followed, the experience I had going through the Co-Active® Coach training series, the practice coaching I did, and the coaching I received, all gave me a deep appreciation for the transformative power of professional coaching.

Today, I am an Enterprise Agile Coach at Cisco and work with coaching clients in the evening (Eastern Time).
