Prior to working with Cathy, I was feeling ‘stuck’ and aimless in my career. From our discussions, she helped me realize that I have the potential to make my work life more fulfilling right now.

A little more about me…

For the last 20+ years, I’ve worked with regional, national and global clients in the areas of leadership, coaching, engagement and culture. I’ve led the Leadership and Coaching Practices at 2 boutique consulting and training organizations and directed numerous global project teams for client implementations. My broader professional experience includes stints in higher education, non-profit association management and start-up so I bring of broad perspective to my work.

On a personal front, I’m a recovering perfectionist...which means I’m figuring out that enjoying the turns and unpredictability of life bring more fullness and fun. I moved to San Francisco in 1998, seeking to better balance my work with my life. I’m still here.

My inspirations include:

  • My 9-year old nephew Joseph inspires me every day. His thirst to learn and explore is never-ending. His abounding passion and strong influencing skills persuaded Aunt Cathy to help him create his own website about the career he envisions for himself. He reminds me to dream big.
  • My former boss and mentor Jonathan Brant whose amazing instincts for leading with fairness, kindness and humor gave me a wonderful example to follow along with so many great days at work.
  • My daily yoga practice which reminds me to breathe and be present.
  • My grandparents, Italian immigrants, who taught me that the results that matter most are your relationships…and a thriving garden!
