I was born in the United States of America and raised in the state of Colorado. There I spent the best moments of my life climbing in the Rocky Mountains. I received a degree in Geography from the University of Colorado in 1988. Soon after graduation, I received a national award to work as an intern at National Geographic magazine and later worked in the Research Division until 1994.
At that point in my life, the explorer in me decided to set out and discover the body and mind more completely. I studied Physiotherapy in Portland, Oregon and worked as a physiotherapist until I discovered coaching in 1998. After attending CTI’s Co-Active Leadership Program and being certified by them, I began to facilitate their courses and work in their Certification program. For the last three years I have been their Director of Leader Training and Development for the more than 150 leaders who work for the organization globally.
I am a Master Certified Coach (MCC) through the ICF and sit on the Board of ACTO (Association of Coach Training Organizations) where I help bring voice to the trainers of the profession. Apart from my work with CTI, I work with clients in the corporate world, executives and also students in the process of Certification.
I have worked with thousands of people all over the world as a coach and trainer during more than 16 years in the coaching profession.
I currently live in Barcelona, Spain, sharing my home with my two cats named Harvey and Rafael.
