Welcome to Professional Certified Coaching!  I have been in the people development business for a long time, first in a medical setting working with brain injury, and now as an ICF certified coach. I have worked with people at their most challenging time post-injury to executives looking to break through barriers. This is fueled by my curiosity about what makes people tick and my conviction that with increased self-awareness, everyone can function better than they currently are. My life’s work has been about helping people stretch beyond what they thought was possible and enjoying the process along the way.
