Philosophy & Experience
I often compare working with leaders, families, and organizations to coaching athletes who are in pursuit of reaching their potential. Impact Coaching & Consulting is in the business of offering, facilitating, and designing a high-performance mindset, process, experience, and results.
Over the past 25 years, I have been privileged to engage with a diverse range of clients, across the US as well as internationally, serving as a consultant, advisor, facilitator, designer, and executive coach to:
- C-Suite and Start-Up venture/organizational leaders, including Co-Founder teams.
- Families engaging in a shared venture involving joint decision-making.
- Individuals, couples, and families who are continuing and building on the existing path and stages/phases of multi-generational wealth transfer, business and/or philanthropy.
- Those who are interested in beginning to develop their own, or a shared, path.
- Family Offices & Family Office Advisory Teams.
- Family Foundations & their Advisory Teams.
- Wealth Advisors/Advisory Teams.
- Philanthropic Advisors/Advisory Teams.
I have been privileged to be part of the advisory community that crosses the spectrum of Philanthropy, Impact Investing/ESG, and Social Finance. Over the years, my work has led me to be a part of the dynamic ecosystem of mission-driven change, double and triple bottom line (people, planet, profit), generated by philanthropic families, entrepreneurial leaders, and social change organizations.

Along the way, I did graduate-level coursework in both Conflict Studies at Lesley College in Boston as well as Health Education/Public Health at Rutgers University.
