My philosophy as an executive coach is rooted in trust, honesty, openness, and passion for driving meaningful and impactful change. I believe that people are at the heart of every organization and empowering your people to thrive in a healthy, innovative culture, a place where a growth mindset and innovation are embraced, is the key to talent engagement and, ultimately, business success. As a coach, I value true connection with my clients, helping them remove obstacles, overcome limiting beliefs, and pave the way to achieving their desired outcomes. I am passionate about partnering with and supporting people to achieve their short- and long-term goals and reach their full potential — both inside and outside of work.

As a senior executive coach and leadership development expert, I have more than 30 years of experience in leadership development, talent engagement, and executive coaching in fast-paced, high-growth global corporate environments. Over the course of my career, I have had the opportunity to hold many diverse roles, allowing me to bring a unique perspective to my work as an executive coach. Through my experiences in product management, product development, talent retention and engagement, learning and development, DEI advocacy and training, and organizational development, I have had the opportunity to appreciate a range of perspectives and business challenges, developing critical skills that benefit me and, ultimately, my clients, every day.

My breadth of business experience has allowed me to understand the mental load that executives face in the form of operational challenges, client needs, and workforce obligations, in addition to the importance of gathering diverse perspectives in an effort to truly engage teams. I value the opportunity to raise awareness, implement new strategies, and pave the way to fulfilling desired outcomes and successes. Incorporating my coaching skills with my background in learning and development — and a firm belief that strong leadership is based on a foundation of trust, empathy, and vulnerability — gives me the ability to be a true partner to my clients, enabling them to reach their full potential.

My personal mission is to play a role in leaving this world in a better, more positive place than when I entered it, and this focus is the cornerstone of my life’s ambitions and the foundation of my coaching philosophy. I bring this motivation to Transcend and help my clients tap into their potential to lead and nourish creative, vibrant, and inclusive cultures that produce a limitless impact within their own enterprise, in their stakeholder networks, customer segments, and the communities in which they live and operate.

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
