Creating the space for Opportunity to help others, share – enlighten and perhaps a little Wisdom along the way, and develop Leadership in those who seek personal and professional growth.

As an executive coach, professor, and HR professional she works to create a community where all can bring their best selves to their work. At times it is not so easy to do and we all need a little support along our path. Having a coach in your corner can be tremendously valuable. Whether you are a new manager, or considering transitioning in or out of the workforce, or pondering your next chapter, a coach can help you sort through the muck, get you un-stuck, and gain focus and clarity.
She’s been there too.
Balancing a big job and a young family, being effective as a VP, and managing through challenging organizational times. Jane understands. Being a leader in an organization can, at times, be lonely at the top. Being a parent with a big job can seem impossible at times and finding passion as you contemplate your next chapter can seem daunting.
Organizations can also create confusion and navigating personal development in challenging environments can be political. Having a coach in your corner is an investment in yourself and your career.

With no agenda, other than yours, a coach is here to listen and support you through whatever your business objectives and challenges are. A confidential sounding board.
