Powerful Questions. Strategic Insights. Reflection & Results.
Welcome to my coaching practice. I’m glad you’re here!
As a Hudson certified coach, I partner with leaders globally to grow their influence and impact.
My strength is converting research into practical tools my clients can use to advance their leadership and change their lives. I leverage the science of mindsets, resilience and mindfulness, along with theories of adult development, to support my clients. To the best of my ability, I integrate anti-racist, culturally sensitive and intersectional lenses into my work.
I am a masterful listener and ask powerful questions that make you stop and think deeply. I bring two decades of experience listening as a researcher, author and interviewer. I am brave enough to challenge my clients, but always with heart and care. Making people laugh is one of my favorite things to do.
I am known for helping clients navigate change, increase their confidence and executive presence, connect with purpose, and refine their strategic thinking. I am skilled at guiding clients to their growth edge, the place researchers call “desirable difficulty” – that sweet spot where your learning is accessible but challenging. I believe discomfort is a feature, not a bug, of growth – and I am passionate about teaching clients the skills to navigate complexity.
I believe our stories are gateways to insight. I work with the whole person, not just the “work person.” We are complex humans, and how we lead is invariably shaped by all the chapters of our lives.
I am a voracious reader and constantly evolving practitioner. As a member of Cultivating Leadership, I bring with me the resources and insights of my estimable colleagues. I look forward to hearing from you!

I feel very privileged to have had Rachel work with one of my team members in a coaching capacity for 9 months. Her gentle-yet-firm guidance has made a big difference in this employee's life, and even though she has a challenging road ahead of her, I can see that she is much better equipped to handle it now having worked with Rachel.
"People are constantly telling me how much they love your work. Everyone enjoys your insights, strategies and down to earth presentation. Thank you for making the workplace more open and successful for all employees."
I can’t tell you how many people stopped by my office to say how valuable your training was to them as parents and even to them as individuals. Thank you for being so easy to work with and for the practical parenting ideas you provided to our diversity and inclusion network.
