Maximize your potential

1:1 Coaching services for DEI leaders & practitioners.

Almost 20 years ago, I accepted my first diversity, equity & inclusion role. While it was exciting, it was often lonely and scary. It forced me to dig deep and find my true north to remain not only resilient but confident and innovative.

Throughout those early years, I discovered that diversity, equity & inclusion work was not just my career; it’s my calling!

Since then, I’ve had the fortune of leading organizational transformations within educational institutions, non-profits, government agencies, and corporate organizations.

Now, I'm on a mission to empower today's generation of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Changemakers. And my Coaching Program is an integral part of that.

Coaching, when combined with other DEI efforts, is a powerful and effective method that inspires DEI practitioners to maximize their personal and professional potential.

Chief Executive Officer
The Diversity Institute

My executive coaching program is unique because it frames conversations differently than traditional training. It empowers leaders to set their own goals around DEI and build the capacity to solve their own diversity, equity, and inclusion challenges.

Our combined efforts result in powerful moments of clarity and a renewed passion for change.
