What do you do and why?

As an executive coach, I work with people up to the executive level in business and life coaching. I empower people to stop playing small and create extraordinary impacts and results in their lives/careers/relationships/cultures/organizations/etc. It’s an opportunity for people and organizations to not only get clear on the impact they are committed to but also to get clear on what they are capable of.

How are you changing the world?

I am committed to creating a huge social impact in working with organizations who share similar interests and passions as myself. I love uncovering how people can go from being a low performer to a high performer, or a high performer to a meta performer. This means allowing space for people to raise the bar in a resourceful way. What if 10% of the world turned up the dial two notches of their own potential and/or integrity? The world would change. That is the movement I am a part of and building.

Who do you admire and why?

Ed Catmull, president of Pixar Animation and Disney Animation, because he is always sure that he is wrong about something and gets curious to what that is every day. Sara Blakely, owner of Spanx and the first female billionaire under 40, because she is vulnerable in her struggles and challenges herself to fail (forward) regularly.

Why did you join IVY?

I was looking for a networking group of people who not only wanted to make a big impact, but were also building a community. Our species is stronger together and built for connection and interaction. IVY captured my attention because they seem to interweave elements of community, fun, class, and adventure in their culture.

What has been your most memorable IVY Experience?

My first event, actually. I went to an LA Dance Project performance in downtown Los Angeles. Every aspect of the evening was a joy. The mingling hour with hor d’eourves and drinks before the show was enjoyable and classy as were the caliber of people I met. With my first career as a professional dancer, it goes without mentioning I loved the innovative movement vocabulary and skill level of the dance company. There were two women from IVY who I met and talked with at intermission. We clicked right away. We have since stayed in touch, and I continue to look forward to how our friendships and business relationships develop.
