Testimonials and Coaching Highlights

Stephanie’s coaching addresses both the outer and inner game, focusing on mindset, accountability, and action. She believes people’s greatest personal growth lies outside of our comfort zone and she’ll compassionately nudge you to stretch in pursuit of your vision.

Stephanie’s techniques (featured on NBC, SXSW, and TEDx) address common blocks in all career levels- whether you’re a manager or founder, you’ll find the clarity and confidence you need to reach your goals.

“I can’t recommend Stephanie enough as a coach. She was superlative – asked me incredible questions, led me through truly life-changing exercises, and helped me overcome some of my biggest blockers. I feel like a different leader after working with her, and regularly draw on the exercises we used in my day-to-day work life. I only wish that our coaching engagement could have lasted longer! If you’re looking for a coach, you’d be in great hands with Stephanie.”

“Stephanie is a phenomenal coach who brings compassion, curiosity, extensive knowledge, and accountability to her approach. I began working with Stephanie to help grow my skills as a new manager. Over the year and a half that we worked together, Stephanie helped me navigate through many changes and growth opportunities in my career, build confidence and leadership skills, set concrete goals, tap into types of work that brings me the most purpose and joy, and so much more.”

“I can’t say enough about Stephanie and her Leadership Coaching. I stepped into my first management role in 2019 and as most of us recall, the 2.5 years that followed were some of the most challenging ever- personally and professionally, for me specifically.  Stephanie guided me through it all beautifully. She created a space of safety, vulnerability, encouragement, and growth. I felt her approach was creative and ever-evolving based on my needs and what obstacles I was facing at that moment in time.”
