As a senior strategist and executive coach with extensive consulting and corporate experience in leading teams to excel in challenging environments, I know first-hand what it takes to help senior executives lead during times of hyper-growth, organizational transition, and operational turnarounds. With three decades of experience in leading strategy development and coaching executives to drive elite performing teams to implement ambitious corporate visions and plans, I’m known to have the ability to relate and distill information into concrete, measurable action steps that drive sustainable change.

I believe in meeting executive leaders and C-Suite teams exactly where they are in the growth process and building a roadmap to greater success together. Rooted in data and delivered within a coaching-infused framework, my approach to strategy helps leaders, teams, and cultures evolve, rising to overcome their most significant obstacles and thriving even in complex and challenging environments. After serving in the military for 20 years and specializing in leadership development, people performance, and human resources management, I carried my experience into the corporate sector with executive roles in sales leadership and training, performance, culture consulting, and organizational transformation.

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
