I’ve been a personal and professional coach since 2007. I received my CPCC (Certified Professional Co-active Coach) from Coaches Training Institute, the international leader in coach training. I also bring more than fifteen years of experience as a business owner, creative director, team builder and leader.
My path to becoming a coach began when my husband and I were looking for an advisor to help us improve our communication—both emotional and practical—around money. We worked with a wonderful coach, Donna Colfer, and gained insights and essential tools we continue to use today.
The process was so powerful that I trained as a financial coach, receiving my certification from The Money Coaching Institute. As I worked with clients it became clear that I wanted to coach them around all parts of their careers, with a special interest in working with entrepreneurs. I decided to continue my studies and graduated from the Coaches Training Institute (CTI).
My career includes fifteen years experience as founder and creative director at Lamfers & Associates, a branding and design firm working with entrepreneurs and Fortune 500 companies including Bechtel, iHealth Labs, Jessie et Laurent Culinary, Kuhn Rikon Switzerland, Math Solutions Publishing, San Francisco Bay Club, Sunset Magazine, UCSF and Wells Fargo Bank.
My continuing education includes the ‘Four Fold Way’ program with the late cultural anthropologist Angeles Arrien and ‘Fundraising from the Heart’ with author and philanthropist Lynne Twist. I’ve volunteered as a caregiver at Zen Hospice Project and as a mentor at San Francisco General Hospital’s Art Therapy Program. I’m currently on the executive council and a mentor with SHE CAN, a nonprofit building global female leadership by supporting women from post-conflict countries win scholarships and attend college in the US.
