“Helping perceptive women leaders rediscover their wisdom, manage their energy more effectively, and thrive professionally and personally”


About Me

I'm a leadership & executive coach, mentor, mastermind facilitator, and author who's passionate about:

· Helping highly perceptive women leaders embrace their superpowers, manage their energy and challenges more effectively, and live and work in alignment with their values and goals

· Working with high performers to build the skills needed to transition from individual contributor to manager and leader

· Helping seasoned leaders learn to communicate more effectively and lead with empathy

· Working with high performers to build the skills needed to transition from individual contributor to manager and leader

· Designing and nurturing psychologically safe and inclusive organizational cultures

I'm currently writing a book called Perceptive (2025). My goal is to raise awareness of and change the conversation around a trait that's misunderstood and stigmatized and yet fairly common and extremely valuable to teams, organizations, and society in general.

In my ~30 years of experience, I’ve had several careers (communications, user experience, copywriting & content development, brand management, operations) in a range of industries, with leadership roles at tech startups, national nonprofits and global Fortune 500s. I've also served as chair of a nonprofit board and had a few small businesses of my own. A common thread has been helping people communicate across functions and cultures.

I thrive on change. I've lived in 9 countries, 8 US states, and countless cities and towns, and traveled extensively. A published writer and editor, I love language(s) of all kinds, and have been involved in the arts, crafts, and design all my life.

Want to talk about highly sensitive/perceptive women in leadership, or how neurodivergence comes with superpowers? Communication and empathy? What organizational culture means, or how to learn about and navigate other cultures? What it takes to successfully transition into a leadership role? I'd love to chat with you!

After hitting burnout so severe I had to quit my job, sell my home and move to Peru to recover, I reconnected with my high sensitivity. 20-30% of the global population are HSPs (highly sensitive persons). Research shows that highly sensitive brains work differently. They’re more responsive to stimuli and process things more deeply than others. I learned I’m an HSP 20 years ago, and although it made sense of so much, didn’t take it all in then. Years later, it clicked. I read, researched and talked with other HSPs. I began to align my work and other aspects of my life with my values and goals, and things fell into place. I’d found my people and my purpose. HSPs have superpowers — empathy, intuition, discernment, and strategic thinking, among many — that the world needs desperately. When we’re functioning at our best, there's nothing we can't do. If you're a woman leader ready to claim your power, find your voice, prioritize yourself, and create your dream life, let’s talk!
