I grew up England and graduated from the University of Durham with a B.Sc.(hons) in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry. I received my Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Liverpool for studies on growth factors and breast cancer.
I move to the US for my post-doctoral work and spent 9 years doing life science research at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I realized that lab research was not my calling, so I changed careers to commercializing early stage technologies, starting at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
In San Antonio I had a hockey stick career, going all the way from entry level to Interim Director in just 5 years. Throughout that transition I was always grateful to the people who made time to advise and mentor me. I made it a point to do the same for others coming up the ladder behind me.
I moved to California to take up an Associate Director position at the City of Hope National Medical Center. Two years later, I was recruited to Houston, Texas to set up a new commercialization office as the first Director at Houston Methodist.
Throughout my career progression, I continued to pour into others, mentoring my team, passing along the insights and skills I learned from my own growth journey, through books, seminars, articles, webinars and conferences. Anywhere I could, I found information to grow myself into a person who could be, do and have more. I sent my people to conferences and workshops to train them, and encouraged them to move on when it was time for them to take the next step up the ladder of success. I love helping others succeed.
After a number of years in the Director role, I followed my interest in coaching and mentoring, and my passion for starting a business, and launched my coaching, training, speaking and consulting business.
I have been taught, and am continually mentored by the best coaches in the world, and bring my world-class coach training, and my high performance and leadership experience to coaching executives, business owners and high potential professionals in science and technology related professions. I also speak on topics related to high performance and leadership.
I understands what it takes to be a high performer, how to take risks to get what you want, and how to navigate transitions, and position yourself to take advantage of opportunities. My experience, combined with my studies of mindset, identifying and changing limiting beliefs, high performance skills and practices, communication and connection, are brought into a powerful coaching relationship that will dramatically change your results and help you achieve your vision.
My clients get results.
