what others are saying
"I am so glad we took time to be with Nicole. It was tremendously helpful in resetting our team, and now, things are moving and shaking again [in the organization]. Nicole managed to let us organically cover things as they came up, but still attend to our two primary goals that day. Excellent! The wrap up she asked us to do after the hardest part of the discussion was genius. I’m going to use this in my own work!"

"I cannot begin to find words to express the impact Nicole has had in my life. She absolutely has "super powers". I always leave our conversations feeling in awe of all that bubbled to the surface. She helps bring clarity to situations that can sometimes feel unsettling, confusing, or painful. She has walked through some of my darkest times helping me find MY TRUTH, forcing me to own what is mine and encouraging me to reach for what I am capable of. Hands down, when I need coaching, Nicole is my first choice. She has a gift for strategic planning, pinpointing sources of stress and anxiety, and developing solutions. Being in leadership can be a lonely space to exist in. In order to lead authentically, we need our 'person' with whom can be 100% transparent, and Nicole is. I promise you, even one 90-minute session with Nicole will leave you wondering how you made it this far without a coach."
"I am so thankful for my work with Nicole. What a delight! She has such a great presence and is so easy to trust. It feels incredible to have the support, intelligence, and heart wisdom Nicole gives. She holds space for me to come undone and be vulnerable. She’s truly been the “doula of my dream."

Dawn shared more about the impact of my work on her in an article she wrote for Thrive Global.
Starting up a business is not always a separate experience from your day-to-day life. In more cases than I care to admit to myself, a good or bad business day can affect my day and sometimes how I view my leadership. However, I know that I am not alone in this. I have seen leaders crumble under the pressure and leaders who have risen above it. After meeting Nicole, I am convinced that what separates the two has everything to do with the voice that is guiding you in your discovering process of leading.
Having clear boundaries with yourself as a business owner as well as relationships with members of your team (especially when you've built relationships with them outside of work) can be very tricky to establish on your own. Nicole has a wonderful way of putting things into context and as an outside observer can provide perspective in the way that you operate your business without taking away your voice.
She never decides for you, she suggests and helps you discover things for yourself. She is an incredibly patient coach who takes the time to really understand you, your team (if that applies), and your business. I know that Urban Women Magazine and myself have greatly benefit from her coaching, which makes it easy to recommend her with full confidence. She is the real deal.
Nicole asks simple, poignant questions to help guide thoughts and ideas. She was very patient with me as I stumbled through answers to questions I’d never considered before. I never felt judged or coddled. She helped me process through things myself instead of handing me one-size-fits-all answers. At the end of Nicole’s and my conversation, I had a better understanding of something that’s been holding my leadership back for years but I’d never fully addressed or acknowledged it. What we uncovered is not a quick fix but I feel more equipped to start the daily process of becoming the leader I need to be.
