I support others in their quest to improve themselves, their teams, their organizations. I believe that change is inevitable, and that each of us has the power and responsibility to shape and direct it. At the same time, all people have blinders, filters, and patterns which limit our effectiveness. At Inspired Sherpa, we offer ways to achieve greater clarity and insight and to leverage this awareness in forging a path forward to the future we want to realize.

I have a master's degree in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from Virginia Tech, and I am an ICF-certified coach. I have experience working with clients in a variety of industries, including financial services, technology, aerospace, and manufacturing. I’ve worked with leaders at all levels of an organization, from c-suite executives to front-line managers. I've spent my career studying leadership and personal development, and the rest of my life relearning lessons on leadership and growth the hard way.

Even the most exciting adventure meets with challenges. The path toward success and happiness is often obscured by distractions both internal and external. A guide through this wilderness is invaluable. Armed with self-awareness, an appetite for growth, and a guiding purpose, anything is possible.

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
— Mary Oliver, poet
