About

I spent most of my professional career being stuck and settling.  I know what it feels like to be a female leader trying to navigate within Corporate America.  My focus was on helping employers solve their trickiest people problems.  As Director of the Employee Assistance Center, I was on the front lines learning what works, and what doesn’t.  Hearing the frustrations around poor communication, ineffective conflict management, and how to position oneself to work from strengths and passion.

You have your own superpowers to bring to your workplace.  Often those go unnoticed and unrecognized.  I am on a mission to help female leaders uncover their brilliance, identify their strengths, and create a roadmap for change in their professional and personal lives.

A lifelong learner, I obtained a Masters in Human Resource Development from Western Michigan University.  Always on the quest for tools to help my clients I have completed the following certifications:

  • 5 in 5 Performance Coaching© with IPV Consulting
  • Thera-rising: Drama Free Workplace – Avoiding Self-Defeating Habits of Otherwise Brilliant People® and The Conflict Savvy Leader.
  • Conversational Management
  • Disc based learning tools

I founded Coach with Leslie to stop settling, step into my own brilliance, and help women just like you do the same.
