As a career corporate communications professional, I’ve been coaching for years. My “superpower” is seeing the possibilities in people and helping them shine.
My coaching practice builds on two decades of senior-level operating experience and communication advisory to CEOs and business leaders at global companies including LinkedIn, Google, Visa, Airbus, Apple, GoDaddy, and Barclays Global Investors. Clients describe me as approachable, insightful, creative, and direct, and they hire me to help them sharpen focus, increase impact, and improve confidence.
I enjoy working with individuals at all stages in their careers who want to communicate better, develop their authentic voice and professional presence, navigate critical career moments more intentionally, and get to the next level. As a trusted partner, I meet people where they are and help them move forward towards their goals with kind strength and constructive conversations.
My executive coaching credential is from the Hudson Institute of Coaching in Santa Barbara, CA, and I am certified (ACC) by the International Coaching Federation. I also have a certificate in Team Coaching from Team Coaching Studio, based out of the UK. My Master's degree (MA) is focused on Interpersonal and Organizational Communication from California State University, Long Beach.
I currently live in Half Moon Bay, CA.
In 2015, with the help of a coach, I decided to pivot from an exciting, always-on role in corporate communications so that I could be more present for my son (who was struggling with school at the time) and our busy family. Since then, I’ve dedicated myself to coaching him and others to succeed.
Megamelon is the name my son suggested for my company, and since he’s such a big part of why I’m a coach today, it stuck.
Today, I think of a “megamelon” as a challenge you want to pursue or change with the help of a coach (in this case, me).
Megamelons typically have some heft. They can be juicy, colorful, ripe, or rotten. Yours may be weighing you down — or it might just hold the seeds for sprouting what’s next.
