Motivated by a deep desire to see people thrive, I aim to inspire people of all ages to never stop growing. My personal mission is to help people connect with their courage and confidence to achieve greater satisfaction and wellness in life. Originally from the USA and educated as a mechanical engineer, I worked for more than 20 years with Procter & Gamble before starting my own coaching business in Geneva, Switzerland in 2017. My corporate career included supply chain and manufacturing leadership roles in the USA, Germany and Switzerland on brands like Gillette, Crest, Old Spice & Actonel.
It was in manufacturing where my passion for individual and team development was born and my collaborative leadership style was honed. My desire to connect, build and unleash the potential in others is what ultimately led me to pursue a coaching career. I achieved my professional coaching credential with the International Coach Federation and now coach individuals and teams globally. I love helping people break through barriers, including their own, to see and experience life in new ways.
In addition, I am a licensed kayak guide, avid hiker, Whole30® advocate and overall lover of the outdoors. I am committed to women’s and girls’ empowerment and am a champion of confidence-building experiences that take us out of our comfort zone. Living in line with my own value to keep growing, I did my first glacier trek after moving to Switzerland in 2015 and I couldn’t get enough! What followed was a life-changing mountaineering course and I’ve been slowly growing my alpine skills ever since. I am happiest when I am a bit covered in dirt or snow or when I am supporting people as they change their lives.
I initially volunteered with Girls on Ice Switzerland because of the tremendous value I see the program bringing to girls and to be an advocate for girls in STEM. My motivation for Women on Ice is to create an experience that enables women to discover, grow and fulfill their dreams while being in the outdoors.
