“I most enjoy working with leaders and teams who are willing to take a good look at their current behaviors, ways of working, and ways of thinking, and who are open to exploring something new.”

Nancy values partnering with clients who are ready to discover new ways of thinking, doing, and being in order to perform at the highest levels, and to experience greater fulfillment in their lives. With more than 25 years of work experience, Nancy readily connects to the challenges leaders and teams face in today’s complex and uncertain work environment. When coaching, Nancy blends compassion with insight and honesty. Clients who work with Nancy report gaining new perspectives, learning new skills, and developing new ways to lead, team, and be.
