Guest Biography

Before my coaching practice, I spent more than twenty years as a public health dentist, researcher and academician. I’ve held numerous leadership positions including  an endowed professor and department chair.

After my own experiences dealing with a variety of leadership styles, I became interested in learning more about what makes an effective and inspiring leader. On this path, I uncovered a great deal about myself and what was involved to be an effective and inspiring leader. I decided to take what I learned to help others understand themselves more fully.

I work with individuals who want to live authentic and fulfilling lives and who are committed to understanding themselves, their behaviors and reactions. I believe that everyone has inherent leadership potential whether they are leaders in organizations, within their families or in their relationships. One of the most important attributes of a successful leader is self-awareness.
