Raised in Texas (wondering about the Tom Landry quote?). Left that great state to study at the University of Chicago for my doctorate. Happily-rooted here ever since with my husband and three daughters. Voracious reader. Confirmed camper. Closeted folk-singer. Sporadic theatergoer. Care deeply about how we create meaning in our lives; for those of us in the West, that’s tightly tied to our vocation, hence my passion for this work.
In addition to coaching, I teach at the Kellogg School of Management in the executive and full-time programs and am proud to have received the Faculty Impact Award multiple years for my work with MBA students. In my teaching and coaching, I have a special interest in founder-led companies and multi-generational family enterprise (double black diamond leadership challenges). I am privileged to speak at signature education events for topnotch organizations, e.g., Google (Women@Google Cloud), Pritzker Group Venture Capital (CEO Summits), Ronald McDonald House Charities (International Conventions), US Olympic Committee, Aon, The Federal Reserve Bank, the American College of Surgeons, Forté Women Lead, Navigant Consulting, etc. It’s all great fun.

That’s enough about me—I look forward to learning about you.
