About My Clients

As a coach and writer, I work with  attorneys, executives and board candidates to create an effective strategy for personal and professional growth, by facilitating:

  • Executive & Leadership Presence,
  • Impactful Communications, and
  • Career Transitions

The majority of my current clients are senior attorneys, specifically General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officers. Others are generally Board of Director candidates, CEOs, other C-Suite professionals, Executive or Senior Vice Presidents, non-profit Executive Directors or senior management and/or law firm partners. Since my background includes law and finance, many of my clients are or have been in one of those fields, and other areas of focus include technology, 

I am passionate about our work and invested in the transformations my clients can achieve through partnering with me. 

Note: I do not currently work with recent graduates, except in very limited circumstances, but can provide a referral if requested.

Why You Need a Strategy Before Writing Your Resume

Many business leaders and others struggle to write a compelling resume, even those who make multimillion-dollar decisions on a daily or weekly basis.

It is not an easy task to sum up one’s professional life in a couple of pages, whether you have scores of accomplishments or relatively few. …[I]t can be difficult to step back from the buzz of activity to clarify one’s thoughts and translate them onto the page. Equally problematic is seeing oneself as a hiring manager would, taking an emotionally unattached view of one’s career.

10 Professional Hurdles that Sabotage Your Networking Efforts

Back in the day, you could put that aside, work hard and have a career for life. But that time has passed. In short, while “who you know, not what you know” has always been the ticket into the upper echelons, the need to network has rippled out to every single one of us. From CEO to student, we all need a strong base of support, not only to advance our careers but also to maintain the advances we have made.

So what if you are not great at networking? What then?

About Me

I am both a strategist and a communicator (speaking, writing and listening).

After 15 years as an attorney – AmLaw 100 firm, private equity/hedge fund, smaller entrepreneurial law firm and solo practice – I shifted gears and became an executive coach, author and resume writer. The move was not made on impulse. Like many of my clients, I transitioned after a few years of contemplating and experimenting with different ideas until I found the right fit.
