My professional coaching journey began in 2016 – initially, in an effort to become a more well-rounded 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, gave me a deep appreciation for the transformative power of professional coaching.

Today, I am an Enterprise Agile Coach at IBM and sometimes work with coaching clients in the evenings.
