I’m an executive coach and speaker who works with senior legal and other professionals to increase job satisfaction and resilience, enhance leadership presence, improve business development and communication skills, realize goals, and make career transitions. I received my master coaching certification from the Hudson Institute and am a Professional Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation.
I also speak at law firms, companies and conferences about marketing and communication skills, ways to build self-confidence, the advantages of being a female professional, and more.
I bring to bear an extensive career in law, having held leadership roles including as Partner and Associate General Counsel at PricewaterhouseCoopers where I represented the firm on a wide variety of legal matters for over 25 years. Prior to joining PwC, I was a litigation associate at Skadden, where I focused on hostile takeovers and general commercial litigation. Following law school, I held a federal judicial clerkship in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. I graduated from Hunter College, magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, and from New York Law School, cum laude, where I was the Chair of the Moot Court Executive Board.
Not coincidentally, when I’m not coaching my clients about their careers, I enjoy coaching softball for my business group as well as participating in lots of sports, including tennis, skiing, hiking and biking. Off the grid from my usual fare, I tried hang gliding in Rio and bungee jumping in Steamboat. Both were scary but sometimes it’s important to get out of your comfort zone!
I enjoy the theatre and photography and am an ace at organizing family reunions. Anyone who’s done it knows it’s more work than anticipated and requires a deft diplomatic touch.
I have three grown children and reside in Manhattan with my husband, a retired naval architect.
