My training and credentials
Credentials are important
I believe in the importance of trusted, thorough and inspiring training as well as the measurement and certification of skills and abilities. I chose to be professionally trained and certified as a Co-Active coach even with my over 20 years of business and human resources experience. My coaching credentials include:
- CPCC (Certified Professional Co-Active Coach) through CTI (see below)
- PCC (Professional Certified Coach) from the International Coach Federation (see below)
- Volunteer Coach for UpRising, WiseHer, Mass Conference for Women and other organizations
- MBA from Boston College Carroll Graduate School of Management
I have worked in non-profits and for-profits including hi-tech start-ups in operations, finance, consulting and business development.
Coaching is my calling
I bring all my educational and business experience as well as my life experiences as a parent, daughter, sister and spouse to help my clients. I enjoy working with men and women–adults of all ages–young and old, entrepreneurs, retirees, millennials, Gen Xers — you name it — because the opportunities for joy are limitless at any age and everyone has a dream worth striving for.
Put simply, coaching is my calling. I am very grateful to have been able to create this practice and offer the gifts I have in order to benefit the lives of the people I coach.
Coaches Training Institute (CTI) is the largest coach training school as well as one of the oldest around the globe. They are renowned for a contextually based, experientially-driven and transformative learning methodology. They are a leader in the industry, working closely with the International Coach Federation to support, promote and maintain the integrity of the coaching profession. The CPCC credential requires over 300 hours of training and practicum. It is one of the most extensive and thorough programs available. For more info, visit coactive.com.
The first level of professional coaching designation is an Associate Certified Coach (ACC). After 500+ hours of coaching individuals and groups, I have surpassed that credential and achieved the next, the Professional Certified Coach designation (PCC).
