My Clients

My clients live and work all over the world. They are women, men, CEO's, new leaders, social entrepreneurs, and just people who are at a crossroads in their lives and recognize that it's time to fully express their creative potential. They want more from themselves and more from others. They are purpose-driven. 


They are in a process of evolving into human beings and leaders that have the capacity to make real change in their organizations, communities and in the world. 

If you are looking for a partner to help you reach the next level in your life and work, someone who will challenge you, nudge you and dare you to be more, then you've come to the right place.

Conscious Leadership

Work with Me

If you are looking for a traditional coach, you won't find her here. After coaching individuals and leaders for almost twenty years I've learned a bit about human nature. To produce quantum developmental leaps, the kind that rock the status quo and get you thinking about limitless possibilities, you need someone who will ask the radical question.


If you are looking to grow as a leader and as a human being, if you are willing to tap into your heart and mind to produce an extraordinary life or purpose driven business or disruptive solution to a global problem, then we should talk.

Our Coaches, Consultants and Facilitators

No one person can do it alone. I'm honored to have a cadre of colleagues that work with Sophia Associates to deliver excellent services to our clients.

I match the right consultant, facilitator or coach to each client. There are times when that coach is not me because there is someone who is a better match or more qualified in a particular domain.

My clients trust me to provide the right person for the engagement. Our Associates are all certified, trained and highly experienced. They have worked in non-profits, private sector, education, medical, financial and government.  They are skilled in delivering numerous assessments, in facilitation of groups and in executive coaching.

I also enjoy strategic relationships with several other firms that have the capacity to deliver global programs on a large scale. For large scale leadership development programs contact me regarding my global partners.
