The proof is in their stories.
Chief Financial Officer
Without your guidance and our coaching sessions I would have taken an entirely different approach to this year of COVID. Before our coaching sessions, I lacked the confidence in my leadership at work and as a mother. I was struggling with juggling it all and not giving it enough. Through this process, I have learned so much about myself. Your words and ideas have pushed me in better directions. I am able to focus on the different areas of my life individually and not bring so much energy from work into my home. I can focus on my kids when I am with them. Most importantly, you provided tools that I can use and carry with me in new situations. You held me accountable and effortlessly made me dive in to issues I was reluctant to address. I approach issues and conflict in a healthier way. I am able to look at different points of view and not immediately jump to conclusions based on the stories I am making up in my head.
I find myself feeling so grateful for you. I’ve never hired a coach to work with me on my stuff that seemingly lives parallel to my business but are obviously not separate nor compartmentalized. Playing big and digging deep with you has been a large source of growth for me these past months and I know it echoes into my future. The investment in myself has been worth it and your candid brand of coaching is exactly what I needed, especially for this season as we dissected the big event I faced that prompted reaching out. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It feels essential now.
Fortune 500 Director
Working with Jill helps me add context and depth to my work, my choices, and most importantly, getting out of my own way. Her style meets me where I am and has helped me traverse a wide array of topics and themes in a manner that is consistent with my leadership style, and the leader I aspire to become. I look forward to our sessions together and leave them ready to take on the next slate of challenges ahead!
When I started working with Jill, I felt so stuck where I was and didn’t see a way to get to where I wanted to go. Jill helped me to find different avenues and choices that highlighted my values. I learned more about who I am as a human, my needs, and how to advocate for myself. My coaching sessions with Jill have empowered me to make the choices to change my life for the better! Truly wouldn’t be where I am right now if it wasn’t for working with her! Beyond grateful!
Training & Development
Jill’s gift of coaching fills a void that encompasses both professional and personal growth and development. A rare combination of mentor, champion and honest friend all rolled up into one. Where has this been my whole career and adult life? Jill’s style is to help you see the whole person you are, point you in the direction you want to go, and walk with you along the way- through stumbles, triumphs and frustrations. She doesn’t do the work for you but guides you through doing the work yourself.
I hired a coach because I wanted a year of growth to push myself. I've known that I was capable of doing more but had been getting stuck in the day-to-day busy-ness of work. Having someone with an outside perspective to bounce ideas and hold me accountable has been absolutely necessary.
Coaching has been a great blend of pushing me to self-revelations and/or solutions and direct feedback when needed. I can be completely open and honest without fear of judgment. I feel like I have someone in my corner to bounce ideas with and brainstorm practical solutions. Coaching has helped me feel more confident and comfortable in my role as well as how I represent myself as an individual.
Biggest takeaway from our time was letting go of needing to ask permission, and "giving myself permission to be f*cking awesome." I believe in myself and my instincts, and I think I always had but the difference is in believing I have the right and the power to exercise them freely and fully. To know I can be a strong leader without being overbearing - that I can stay true to my vision and be in service of others, while also knowing full consensus may be unrealistic.
Coach & Speaker
If you are looking for someone to come alongside you and champion you into the best version of yourself, you've found the right person. Jill has an incredible gift to elevate your current understanding of a situation or mindset into an entirely new perspective in order to serve you with positive momentum, as she embodies the name of her business. I wholeheartedly recommend you invest your time with Jill.
Jill has a no-nonsense approach to her coaching. We all have people in our lives that will beat around the bush. She challenges my thinking in a positive and supportive way. It's not that my thinking is "right or wrong" but there is always more to the issue than what I talk about initially. I require a trustworthy coach who can encourage, empower and challenge me to consider alternatives to things I perceive as problems. Understanding that there are alternatives, not a this or that answer helps me move through difficult situations. If you want someone to help you actually identify challenges and solutions, Jill should be your coach!
I reached out to Jill for coaching when I was at a difficult crossroads in my personal and professional life. Because of our work together, I’ve been able to accomplish so much more than navigating that one decision. As a result of Jill’s coaching, I’m more confident, more capable, balanced and more myself in all aspects of my life. Jill knows me and my values very well and helps me recognize thought patterns that prevent me from acting on my values in everyday life. In every session, there’s a moment when things click and I’m able to see a problem and a path forward more clearly. Jill has taught me to honor who I am while still growing toward the things I want to achieve.

Word of Mouth
Every single one of my coaching clients has come from referrals or connecting at events. This word of mouth means everything.
Because of this, you won't see much from me or my business on social media.
Instead, I invest my precious time, energy, and money in things that align with my values-- my family, gaining more education and training to continue getting better for my clients, and serving things close to my heart, like coaching youth soccer and my kiddo's school.
