An engaging, curious, and committed coach, I partner with clients to identify their strengths and current mindsets. Together, we determine what the client truly wants, what might be in the way and explore new thinking and actions. I challenge my clients while also supporting them in a safe, calm environment.
As an ICF certified coach through George Mason University's Leadership Coaching for Organizational Well-being program, I'm grounded in well-being practices, and maintain a service from strength perspective. I serve my fellow professional coaches as a peer coaching group leader and as an active member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF) DC Metro chapter.
After a 20-year career in education, I founded Red Zinnia, a coaching and consulting firm dedicated to developing and supporting passionate leaders doing good in the world. I am a certified 360 assessment facilitator with the Center for Creative Leadership. As a partner with Wiley Learning Solutions Everything DiSC and The Five Behaviors, I offer assessments and professional development to clients seeking to build successful workplace relationships. By accessing a proven network of certified coaches, I partner with organizations and associations to offer leadership coaching packages as a member benefit at member-only rates.
It was in a little Vegas chapel that I married my best friend, a very clever and funny guy. We enjoy our large blended family of five adult children and one granddaughter. You are most likely to find me grilling something delicious at our mountain cabin in beautiful Luray Virginia, exploring eclectic haunts in the Shenandoah Valley, or taking flying lessons from my flight instructor brother, Tom.
Red Zinnia supports Page One, a charity serving Page County in Virginia. Their humanitarian mission is to provide family assistance to those in the community who find themselves unemployed, sick or for some unforeseen situation, unable to feed their family or meet their financial needs
