The field of Risk Management and Insurance is rewarding and challenging. Whether you are an attorney, claims professional, broker, underwriter, or risk manager, I understand your struggle. Crises often arise quickly and may be unprecedented. You are expected to take in complex reams of data and arrive at a simple solution. You are often the messenger of bad news, and your audience may not appreciate all that you do to mitigate risk and reduce cost every day.
Earning my MBA while working in the Risk and Insurance field began my pattern of blending education and experience. Leading a first-rate team of professionals, I was responsible for global Insurance programs, Property and Casualty claims, Enterprise Risk Management, Crisis Response and Business Continuity. During that time, I was fortunate to complete numerous leadership courses that provided personal insights and practical leadership principles. This enabled a shift from relying on technical knowledge to relying on my ability to engage and inspire a team of people. Through self-assessment and input from others, I realized the following innate traits: helping others succeed brings me joy; I am wired to teach and mentor; and I am a good listener. Working as an adjunct college professor further reinforced my desire to help others learn and grow, and ultimately brought me to this heart-driven work.
In 2018 I left my role as a Risk Management executive at a Fortune 40 organization to be a leadership coach and trainer. Coach training took place at George Mason University's ACTP course "Leadership Coaching for Organizational Wellbeing". After which attained the Associate Coaching Certification (ACC) through the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
Let's partner together so you can overcome the hurdles that are slowing you down and bring forth the confident and capable leader inside you.
