I’m an internal coach and program manager in the tech sector of Silicon Valley, Ca. I believe that through technology, we can automate most things, but “we cannot automate the human relationship.” My goal as a coach is to be a fellow human being and guiding partner on your journey to rediscover your true self. To listen, reflect, ask questions, support and challenge you. To walk alongside you as you find that next place where your unique gifts, talents, passions, skills and interests can best serve the world.
Fun Fact: I have finished the Honolulu Marathon (very slowly) 11 times since 2001.
