Why I am serving on the Board: I am honored to be serving on the Board because ICF matters. Coaches best know how to help fellow coaches deliver excellent service to clients. In the almost two decades that I’ve been a coach, I’ve seen the ICF standards, credentialing, and ongoing education raise the bar in the entire coaching sector. Also, I love helping coaches connect with other coaches. We are better ourselves when we grow in relationship with each other.
Fun Fact: I love brewing my own beer and am on my way to my second level of Cicerone certification, the “sommelier” equivalent for beer.

Why I am serving on the Board: I started the ICF South Carolina Chapter because I was keen on connecting with other South Carolina-based coaches to share best practices, resources, and success. I am passionate about serving our local communities, organizations, and our state through the profession of coaching. I envision ICF-SC as means to support South Carolina coaches and businesses in communicating the benefits of professional coaching to their clients and organizations. My contributions to the board are my leadership, commitment, and drive to spread the word about Chapter activities, community events, and the overall benefits of being involved in with the ICF both locally and globally.
Fun Fact: I have a love for travel that has taken me to over 45 countries and still counting!
Why I am serving on the Board:
Why am I serving on the board? I am on the board because I believe in supporting and contributing to the coaching profession. Given that we have a significant impact on people and in our communities, I seek opportunities to support other coaches in their pursuit of fulfilling their dreams of becoming the consummate coach. As the membership chair, it is invigorating to meet and interact with our membership to learn why they became a coach and how ICF-SC can assist in creating quality relationships that add value to our professional lives. In addition, it is important to me to stay connected to other coaches to so that we can continue to have conversation about how we can advance the profession to have a significant impact in South Carolina. Through our collective efforts, we have the power to transform our world!
Fun Fact: I recently took up the hobby of acting and was in a murder mystery. I had a very small part and was on stage twice. My total time on stage was five minutes. Each of the other characters had much more time on stage. During intermission, the audience was asked who killed the main character and half the audience said it was me! My performance was so strong, that I was the talk of the community!
