I believe in establishing a true connection with my clients and asking the tough, but fruitful questions that lay the foundation for transparency, change, and growth. My passion is forging life-enhancing relationships rooted in reality and guided by a deep, mutual trust so that the transformational work can flourish into meaningful and lasting transformation. I have seen how effective coaching can support the whole person, while also bolstering performance beyond expectations.

With more than 20 years of experience as a corporate executive, I bring proven, real-world expertise to my coaching engagements, knowing first-hand the challenges and pressures that executives face in their everyday lives. Having successfully coached numerous corporate and non-profit leaders, including Fortune 500 CEOs, C-Suite leaders, entrepreneurs, and executives across many industries and market segments, I know what it’s like to put everything you have into growing a company.

My coaching style seamlessly integrates observing, clarifying, and challenging while providing relevant and affirming feedback.

By combining my years of experience as both a senior executive and a seasoned coach, I utilize my background in appreciative inquiry to quickly decipher a client’s core strengths and areas of opportunity and unlock the potential within to achieve the next level of success.

Whether it was serving as the head of product innovation, sales, merchandising, and marketing inside large organizations, or coaching C-suite executives from major brands in the food services, entertainment, healthcare, or non-profit market segments, I have honed the art of using reciprocal dialogue and applying the right rhythm of challenges. Although each client’s journey is unique, I’ve helped many high-performing CEOs and executives move beyond their current state and discover the untapped talents and potential necessary to achieve a higher level of thinking, leadership, and self-empowerment.

All companies invest in sales, marketing, and technology. The ones that take the time to invest in their own “why,” their own growth and that of their teams, are the ones that reach a different echelon. Our work with Transcend has made us into an elite organization in every sense of the word and it’s easily one of the best investments I’ve ever made.
Jess Rovello CEO, Arkadium
Transcend has been transformational for me as CEO and for my executive team. They connected the mind and the heart of our executive team, driving more alignment, a team working as one rather than individuals, and over-delivering on results. I have worked with many consultants and coaches. Transcend has been the most impactful.
Mark Goldstein CEO, Entertainment Partners
If the time has come to make changes in an organization, Transcend can facilitate the creation of an informed and cohesive plan built around the leadership’s vision while keeping firmly planted in the reality of what it takes for that vision to succeed.
Nancy Novokmet Managing Partner, NEED
