Born in South Carolina, to parents who never completed high school, we eventually moved to Prince George's County Maryland, just east of DC, where I spent most of my childhood. At the age of 16, I dropped out of school, unsure of what would happen next I eventually earned a GED and attended Community College.
The pursuit of additional college led me to North Carolina. I finished my undergraduate degree and was involved in non-profit outreach work with youth and at-risk communities.
Drawn to help the under-resourced, I moved to Cambodia for a few years, one of the poorest countries in the world. While there, I attended classes in the Philippines and completed a masters in Organizational Leadership. I fell in love with coaching during grad school and earned ICF coach credentials in 2007.
Since then, I have traveled to 20+ countries, supporting, coaching and training leaders from all walks of life.
I worked in international disaster relief, supporting leaders in 20+ countries and then in healthcare focusing on developing physician leaders and senior administrators. Both industries have little tolerance for the theoretical and this honed my natural tendency toward simple and practical.
Next, I had the distinct pleasure of serving as Head of Coaching at the Center for Creative Leadership (Americas), a top-10 globally ranked provider of executive education. I led one of the largest coaching practices in the world for 5 years, with over 400 coaches delivering more than 20,000 hours of coaching annually and training thousands of leaders in coaching and conversation skills.
Now, as a Partner at Pilgrimage Professional Development Group - an elite executive coaching, assessment and training firm - I am building and doing what I love most with amazing colleagues and friends.
I am also an Executive Coach and Strategic Advisor for AIIR Consulting and a contributing member of the Forbes Coaches Council.
