Coaching for Change Managers and Teams

Comprehensive change management coaching that fits your needs and schedule.


Don’t Go It Alone Anymore.

I help new and experienced change managers and project managers to increase their change management successes.

Throughout my 15+ years of change management tenure, I have delivered end-to-end change programs at Apple, Cisco, Deloitte, Accenture, State Street, Bank of New York Mellon, Fannie Mae, Intel, the U.S. Federal Reserve, and other global corporations.

I launched Apple’s first ever Organizational Change Management Practice from scratch, and coached Intel’s Supply Chain Change Management Team to deliver effective change management for over 70,000 Intel employees and managers.

I leverage this extensive knowledge to coach Change Management and Project Management practitioners using a 1-on-1 coaching approach.
