My goal is to help you re-imagine your life. I use the Co-Active coaching model and believe that each of us is innately creative, resourceful, and whole. I listen deeply and will use tools to identify your values and life purpose as a foundation for supporting your short- and long-term goals. I will partner with you in designing systems of support and providing championship and accountability for making positive changes in your life.
I have served as both an internal and external consultant for quality and leadership development programs and have obtained education with a Master of Applied Industrial/Organizational Psychology degree, Certified Co-Active Professional Coach and Associate Certified Coach credentials, and Lean/Six Sigma Black Belt certification that have provided me with excellent knowledge of business operations, organization development, strategic planning, and performance and personnel management.
I have completed over 200 hours of ICF-accredited coach training with the Co-Active Training Institute (CTI).
I have more than 15 years of experience working in healthcare, most recently serving as Director Quality & Patient Safety Officer at an 82-bed hospital.
Committing to new goals is just that – a commitment, and it’s a big one that will take a lot of dedication. My commitment is to provide you with accountability, understanding and support.
True transformation requires a commitment for change over time. Reconnect with values and purpose, identify actions to achieve short- and long-term goals, and deepen your learning to build resourcefulness and resilience.

As a healthcare quality director, I have expertise in project management, organization development, change management, performance management, psychological measurement and methodologies, and hold a Lean/Six Sigma Black Belt in quality and process improvement.
I live in Durango, Colorado with my husband, two daughters, and a hound dog named Milton. I love being outdoors and breathing in the fresh air of the mountains - it gives me the biggest sense of freedom and expansion that I can get right now. My soul also needs regular access to the beach and a warm body of water to swim in. I enjoy hiking, camping, paddle boarding, playing with my kids, and escaping into a good book. I miss going to music festivals.
My parents provided a very supportive upbringing and continuously told me, through their words and behavior, that I could be anything that I wanted to be, do whatever I wanted to do, while achieving personal fulfillment and making the world a better place - I just needed to "design" the life I wanted to live. I held this to be the truth and was shocked when I began working in my first professional job and heard so many comments from more experienced professionals who felt "stuck" in their professional or personal life. Without even thinking about it, my response was always "OK, you're not happy. Why don't you find or create a new job that better aligns with your values?" They looked at me like I was both insane and naïve.
I have personally created four job titles for myself throughout my career. And, when I haven't created a new title, I have always been active in developing the job role I'm in to best suit my strengths and in a way that furthers the mission and goals of the organization. You can do this too.
I'm passionate about helping others to re-ignite fulfillment in current job roles, create opportunities for professional development and growth, and to move through career transitions. Life is too short to do work that doesn't light you up.
