"You can't ask other people to believe you and vote for you if you don't back yourself."
- Jacinda Ardern
Hi! I'm Michelle.
I partner with women leaders around the world to level-up their careers, have an impact on their professional field, and work with joy.
I’m a women’s leadership coach and strategist with a Ph.D. Because I’ve spent nearly 20 years investigating the ways patriarchy operates in the lives of women around the world, I’ve also witnessed powerful feminist disruptions to those systems. I know what’s possible.
From interviewing war widows in the Western Highlands of Guatemala and researching militarism, gender-based violence, and peace studies to consulting with trailblazing non-profit leaders in Poland, and teaching in Croatia as a Fulbright Scholar with the U.S. State Department, I’ve seen women leaders in action. I synthesize my academic research, advanced certification in confidence coaching, and my own lived experience into individualized leadership coaching so that you can show up, stand up, and speak up in any room. I can help you because I studied the theories and because I’ve lived them.
About Coaching for Women Leaders
Professional leadership coaching is a process of identifying what internally and externally is holding you back. For women, social and economic systems can work against us. Coaching asks “what can we change in ourselves so we can change the world for others?”
I work with women and nonbinary leaders across industries, helping them identify their unique abilities and overcome our common struggles. We’re revolutionizing the world, one woman at a time.
