I'm an ICF-certified coach and professor of coaching. Yes, that's my job! I spend my days with passionate colleagues
and students training them to be coaches.
Though I graduated from Michigan State University,
University of Colorado and The Johns Hopkins University,
I have something to share and to confess.
I would trade in all of my college degrees just to have my coaching skills; that's how impactful coaching is. Since coaching can be used with every human on the planet, it's the must-have set of skills for this century. Coaching is also the foundation of the majority of my passion projects including a new book I am writing about coaching (tentatively due out in 2024!) and all of my public speaking events.
Before taking a college position, I taught K-12 students in suburban Denver, on the Navajo Nation, in Quito, Ecuador, in inner-city Baltimore and on ropes courses in North Carolina and Arizona. When not writing my own blog or living my core values deeply,
I enjoy being with my family, spending time outdoors,
and exploring new places.
