Q & A

What is your coaching superpower?

Diverse experiences building products, companies, and developing leaders across many industries, functions, and sizes of companies helps me find the “sweet sauce” in your unique story. Where should you “place your bets” when investing in a graduate program? I can help you discover what culture works best for you and showcase all the skills and experiences you will contribute to the community you join.

Why are you passionate about coaching?

Helping people grow and find their path is one of the most important things anyone can do. No matter where you end up, the process of identifying your goals, finding programs that are a great fit, and telling your own unique story is a powerful process in your career journey. I love helping people imagine and discover all the possibilities and find the best place to achieve them.
