Training & Experience
I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach with the Coaches Training Institute, CTI and an Associate Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation, ICF. Other professional credentials include military, university studies in business management, psychology and political science. I have professional experience in office management, free enterprise including a patented for an invention in the health sector, public relations and owned a massage clinic with 20+ therapists. Living a life with many facets, I come from modest roots in the inter-mountain rural areas of Idaho, USA, living now in Colorado, USA and Berlin, Germany, with experiences of living in New York and Southern Italy. I grew-up as No. 12 in a family with many siblings. Combining military service and business with single mom duties, I also managed an international patchwork family with daughters from both sides of the Atlantic and both sides of the Iron Curtain. Through this, I combine the solidity of the Rocky Mountains with the energy of international metropolises like Berlin and New York. My travels so far have led me in well over 30 countries providing me with a high sense of tolerance, open-mindedness and cultural insight.
Coaching Fun with ELIZA?
I am an Executive Coach, Life Innovator and Leadership Architect! I also like having a good laugh. Coaching is a process where you want to change your life – not your coach! This, of course, cannot be provided for free. To provide a free-of-expense, fun solution, I created the online coach ELIZA. Although it’s just for FREE fun, you might find something useful in her outlandish questions! Try ELIZA! But don’t take her too serious!
I use a core values based coaching style to dig deep into each topic. One value characteristic of mine is that I don’t lose time in sugar-coating things or beating around the bush. I rather get right to the core of the matter, so I believe in straight talking in coaching too. My clients range from business executives to managerial and leadership professionals in international governmental organization and even include military and homemakers. I work with driven people who have conquered and achieved much in their lives already. Experiencing this myself as a business woman, I learned that sometimes the smallest doorway can lead to the most unexpected discovery if seen… I help you see!
What I bring to coaching is my innate ability to help people locate strengths in themselves! I take a strong stand for self-empowerment through core values connection and can foster this attitude in others. Various experiences, both professional and personal, have taught me the power of personal values, which I express through my coaching style as an Executive Coach, Life Innovator and Leadership Architect. I believe personal values are at the core of all change. They are intangible, yet visible to others and show up in every life experience impacting your decisions and personal behaviors. They influence your motivational drivers to be your greatest self, strive for more and to make your highest and best possible contribution in life.

5 Element Coaching Tool
Coaching is all about change and utilizes a lot of tools to maintain balance while moving forward into action. Coaching tools help create distance, new perspectives, and choice while fostering self-empowerment through change.
One specific tool I use and am still developing is based on a Chinese philosophy that has been the basis for TCM, martial arts, political Dynasty change, and almost everything in nature and the world we live in.
The 5-Elements Coaching Tool is a discovery tool helping to understand how these elements harmonize and regulate a balanced flow in all that we do, and how we can harness information from the theory of the 5-Elements to break through barriers, overcome obstacles, and make use of our full potential.
