I am a career and leadership coach based in Washington, D.C. I work with both corporate and private clients around the world. In my career coaching practice, I focus on coaching clients who want to make a career transition. I help my leadership coaching clients accelerate their professional development by strengthening their skills and confidence as a manager.
I'm an experienced coach, manager, and recruiter. I am passionate about helping clients define their goals and find their passion. I have worked with both individuals and teams since starting KO Coaching in 2012.
In my corporate training work, I work with clients ranging from startups to Fortune 50 organizations. I base my material in research and concrete data about what increases performance and effectiveness, and I combine this with my personal experience as a manager.
My education includes: Certified Coach by Coach U, the oldest accredited coaching training school in the US. I also hold an MBA from Georgetown with a focus on Management and Leadership, and a B.A. from Princeton University. My professional certifications include: DISC Assessment and Facilitation, Professional Resume Writer, and Certified Employment Interview Professional.
Individual coaching focused on creating your ideal career transition. I work with clients to help them identify their ideal role, prepare them for the transition, and guide them through the entire job application and onboarding process. For more details, please see the 1:1 coaching page.
For junior and mid-level leaders who want 1:1 attention on how to accelerate their leadership skills. I often find that my clients are not getting the coaching, feedback, and support necessary to excel in leadership roles. As a former manager and a trained leadership coach, I will help you identify your strengths as well as areas for development, and will devise a custom plan for you to help you reach your potential faster.
I have worked with a wide array of corporate clients to tackle training on topics such as: Performance Management, Personal Effectiveness, and Diversity and Inclusion. This training is conducted in a group setting ranging from 4 to 40 participants. Training has included both multi-year programs and one-time engagements for conferences or retreats.
