Professional Bio:  I have over 20 years’ experience as a top-notch Human Resources Professional working in the high-tech corporate world and as a consultant for small businesses.  I spend time learning from other business women through weVENTURE whose mission is to “amplify womenpreneurs to accelerate sustainable business growth”.

In My Words:  As an over-achieving college graduate and spending years climbing the corporate ladder, I now know what it feels like to want more.  In 2006, I quit my corporate job, started consulting at a small business and spending more time with my husband and son.  Working part-time, volunteering at church, and asking God to direct me where He wanted me, I waited patiently for the answer.  In the meantime, my church offered me an opportunity to be coached by a Christian Life Coach.  The heavens opened and the answer fell in my lap.  I am a graduate of and received my certification from Christian Coach Institute, an ICF approved training program, and ready to be a light for God in this dark world.  My favorite scripture from the Bible is Psalm 46:10 “Be Still and Know that I am God.”  Often times I am juggling various aspects of my life ….. missing what God has put right in front of me.  He reminds me to “Be Still.”



The concept for One Way Coaching, LLC was a team effort. After many discussions with my husband, son, family and friends, I wanted to create a business where individuals and small businesses could work and grow with me.  I am committed to help small businesses with their strategies and techniques to create business success.  For individuals, I help people move forward and set personal and professional goals that will give them the life they really want.


Coaching helps businesses and individuals:

  • Develop an action plan for growing both individually and their business
  • Foster focus and clarity regarding their vision
  • Manage their time wisely
  • Increase revenue
  • Prioritize their tasks so they know what to do first and when
  • Stop feeling “stuck”


One Way Coaching, LLC provides coaching to individuals, to teams/groups and to small businesses. I also coach those who are self-employed. In all, my goal is to help clients stay focused and motivated, and create lasting results.
