The International Coaching Federation (ICF) defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity, and leadership. See:https://coachingfederation.org/about
I have lived experience as a double-minority and understand the unique challenges women and people from marginalized groups face particularly in the workplace.
I have practice and programming experience as a Social Worker of over 13 years, which includes a therapeutic background. In addition to this, I also have executive leadership experience as a CEO of a national network and am a trained Executive Coach from Evolution’s Coach Training Program, an International Coach Federation (ICF) accredited program.
I have a Doctorate in Social Work, understand people and systems, and have researched the racial leadership gap in the nonprofit sector, the importance of talent development i.e. training, coaching, and mentoring.
I am committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion and ensuring all people regardless of identities are supported to achieve their goals and have equal access to opportunities.
I am a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator and ready to rumble with vulnerability.
In addition to this, I care deeply, am highly motivated, and will give my best to ensure you have the support and accountability you need to succeed.
Once we have an opportunity to speak, you can decide for yourself whether I am the right coach to support you with your goals. I look forward to our conversation!
