About Iris

Hello!

I’m glad you’re here! I’d like to tell you a little about myself.

I’ve been a professional coach, leadership trainer, executive education program director, facilitator, and a psychotherapist. I’ve worked with high-achieving and high- potential women leaders, early managers, and C-suite executives for over 20 years. I coach professional women who want to make changes in their lives to allow them to find more purpose, well-being, resilience, happiness, and success.

I bring an extensive and unique background of experience to my coaching practice. I started out as a therapist specializing in work-related stress. When I sought out a coach for myself and quickly found success in many areas of my life, I realized I wanted to give that to others so they too could have the life and work they desire.

Being a lifelong learner, I have spent years deepening my coaching skills and have been very fortunate to have learned from some of the best teachers in the industry. Besides formal training in several coach disciplines, I have had the privilege of working with hundreds of highly accomplished women leaders over the years. This has given me deep insight into the very real challenges women in the workplace face today. It has made me even more committed to helping women get to where they want to be and have the life they want, without burning out.

Working with a coach is about a relationship. It’s a partnership. And like all good partnerships there should be a certain chemistry for it to work well. My coaching style is to deeply listen to your concerns and goals. Once identified we will create clear strategies and an action plan that works for you.

My passion is helping you to become your best self at work and in life. And to create success on your terms.

I truly believe in the power of coaching to change one’s life for the better. If you want to discover what is holding you back from the life you desire, then coaching could be your answer, as it was for me. If you feel there could be chemistry between us to work on your goals and create success, then let’s talk about how we can work together!!

"I met Iris at a time that I was desperately seeking a mentor. She challenged me look into my own strengths and work through the barriers I had put up for myself. Her coaching allowed me to tackle difficult questions and to approach opportunities without hesitancy, and find the confidence to embrace a new challenge."
