Professional Background

I have worked with and for nonprofit organizations for almost 20 years, beginning my career as an Educator at the Cleveland Museum of Art.  Since then, I have held a number of positions in the nonprofit sector including Human Resources Administrator at the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes, Education Director at Young Audiences of Greater Cleveland, and Education Director at Global Issues Resource Center at Cuyahoga Community College.  I was also the Executive Director of the Medina County Performing Arts Foundation, a multi-service arts organization formerly housed at the Grace Drake Center for the Arts in Medina, Ohio.  As its administrator I oversaw all aspects of the organization- programmatic, administrative, and financial.  I continue to assist a number of regional nonprofit organizations by serving on a variety of advisory, educational and grants review committees.  I currently serve as the President of Medina County Women's Endowment Fund and apply that experience, coupled with my background in nonprofit administration, to help other boards reach their highest potential.  I am the owner and principle of Transition Consulting and Coaching and a provider with Sanctuary at the Crossroads, as well as a contracted Senior Career Coach with national firm, Career Curve.  I am a former member of Medina Women in Business and also actively involved in a number of local and regional organizations, including Women's Network Northeast Ohio and Working Women Connection.

My Education

I have a BA in Studio Art from the College of Wooster, concentrating in photography and painting, and an MA in Art History & Museum Studies from Case Western Reserve University.  I follow the guidelines and Code of Ethics of the International Coaching Federation.  I am also trained in conflict mediation and active learning techniques.

My Interest in Coaching

In 2000, I met and worked with Nicole Canter, a Life Coach at the Wellness Center at Cuyahoga Community College, Eastern Campus.  Our work together helped me attain a long-time dream of managing my own business and working for myself.  In 2007, Nancy Nicholas of Crossroads Coaching approached me about collaborating together.  This invitation helped me to realize yet another personal goal, fulfilling a desire to work with individuals, in addition to business clients.  Through my professional career and personal coaching experience, I have learned what can be achieved through action goal setting and allowing yourself to be open to the possibilities and exciting paths your life may take.  I now provide this type of mentoring to individuals, especially those seeking a more fulfilling career or needing direction or organizational help with their business.
