Through RealEyes Coaching, I offer leadership and executive coaching, career coaching, career strategy planning, marketing material services, networking skills, interviewing skills, and negotiating skills. I also offer workshops to groups on leadership, professional development, and Emergenetics, a powerful tool for clients who wish to learn more about how they think and behave and how that translates into opportunities for them to work better and more efficiently and effectively with others.

As a coach, I thrive on connecting with people, helping them grow, actualize their vision of success, and BE the people they want to be. I am grounded in my International Coaching Federation (ICF) certified training and credentials along with my academic career where my research focused on authenticity and people’s experiences and perceptions of wilderness. I am valued by clients and colleagues for my professionalism, my empathetic nature, my appreciation for others’ perspectives, and my ability to challenge without judgment.

my experiences

Previously, I was a research professor in Environmental Studies at SUNY-ESF in Syracuse, NY. Trained as a cultural Geographer, my academic training in authenticity and cultural and environmental perception in nature-based tourism has provided me a natural foundation for coaching. During my academic career, I was recognized for excellence in leading research teams, advising students, teaching courses, and publishing academic papers. I also Co-Chaired the Recreation, Tourism & Sport Specialty Group for the American Association of Geographers and served on editorial boards for academic journals.

Earlier, I had an eclectic career that included teaching high school Spanish at an International Baccalaureate school, being an event planner, and working on the ski slopes in Aspen. I have traveled and studied extensively outside the U.S., developing a keen appreciation for other backgrounds, cultures, and ways of being in the world.

I am a member of the International Coaching Fedration (ICF) and received comprehensive ICF Coach Training through the nationally recognized Coach Academy International program for professional coaches. I am also Certified as a Career Management Coach through Coach Academy International. I hold a Ph.D. in Geography & Landscape Studies from Indiana University, an MA in Geography from York University in Toronto, ON, and a B.A. in Spanish & Geography from Appalachian State University in North Carolina.
