As a dedicated coach, I am your sounding board and your wake up call.
I bring the inspiration and encouragement that moves you towards the life
you want to be living and the work you want to be doing.
You’ll want to work with me if you…
★ have a business you want to start or take to the next level
★ want to explore your relationship with money and how it may be holding you back
★ need help articulating what you offer to the world on your resume or other career marketing materials
★ are searching for a new career path and can’t make a decision
★ are a creative who is paralyzed by perfectionism and wants to get unstuck from self-sabotaging habits and thoughts
★ are struggling to find motivation to get started on a project
★ no longer want to leave money on the table and want to learn how to negotiate your salary/rates
I really enjoyed how Lindsey pushed me to revisit questions I had previously thought I’d made up my mind about. A lot of times when rethinking them from another perspective I had totally different thoughts. I also loved how energized I became about the process after each session rather than frustrated as I had when working solo. If anyone is having trouble getting started with the career transition on their own I’d highly recommend Lindsey to be your guide to kick start the process!
Your positivity, encouragement, and warmth really shine through the phone. And, it is evident that this is work you care about and want to support clients in putting their best foot forward in life and career. I also really appreciated your prompt response and follow ups as well as flexibility.
By the end of this year I'll have a website up and running for the first time since I began personal training 6 years ago. I'm moving to online scheduling which will make things easier for myself and my clients. With Lindsey's encouragement I've had professional photos taken for the website and promotional materials.
This has been an excellent experience so far. You've helped me do the one thing I couldn't do on my own: GET STARTED. Each week I have homework and I feel like I'm finally making progress. It feels amazing to be working ON my business instead of IN it.
By working with Lindsey, I changed my career and she helped me solidify the intentions I have had for years to make my dream come true. Or at least seem real to me and help me continue down that path.
I knew I needed someone on my team during the early stages of my start up. I needed an outside voice to help me pull together the huge amount of work I had to do. Lindsey gave me structure and focus during a time that felt difficult to breakdown my workload into sizable portions. It's fun and energizing to talk to someone who is as excited about your company and mission as you are. That energy and momentum carried me through a difficult period in launching my business.
It would be hard to overstate the positive impact Lindsey's coaching and consult had on me both personally and professionally. Her engaged, active listening during our sessions led to helpful to-do's coming out of each session that consistently pushed me to grow and expand my understanding of self and the broader opportunities that surround me.
"Thank you SO SO much for all of your help along the way, Lindsey. You seriously helped me more than you know. I really wouldn't have had the guts to make this huge change, and I would have gone yet another year not living my best life, in a job that I didn't love."

More about me…
I approach life with humor and abundance.
I believe in the power of small deliberate choices.
I surround myself with people who think differently than me.
Laughter is medicine. So is moving my body. And getting off the computer.
I know the value of a support system – people who see something in me that I don’t (yet) see. The imposter syndrome will always be waiting in the wings – why feed it?
I believe in eating the frog, good socks, strong coffee, and paying it forward.
I have experienced firsthand that empowered women go on to empower women.
I deeply admire the work and musings of Adam Grant, Brené Brown, Simon Sinek, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, and Lindy West.
I coach most of my clients virtually and most of my life is lived in beautiful Burlington, Vermont.
My CliftonStrengths™ are: Activator, Discipline, Learner, Futuristic, and Relator.
In many ways, I was my first coaching client. My early years showed me what I didn’t want for my life. My success can be attributed to three main ideas: people’s belief in me, the belief I had in myself (even on the hard days), and learning the skills and habits to make positive choices. Today I have a career that allows me to travel with my husband, Colin, live 100% debt-free and work 10-11 months out of the year. Everyday I get the privilege to empower others to think expansively about what their lives could be. Amazing.
When I’m not coaching, I’m working on initiatives focused on advancing women’s economic security and career/college readiness for young people. I facilitate the Business Peer Exchange in Vermont committed to advancing gender diversity and equity in the workplace.
As I pursue my Associate Certified Coach (ACC) Certificate, I subscribe to the highest level of ethical and professional standards in the coaching industry. My professional training includes Coach Training EDU, a licensed training provider accredited by the International Coaches Federation.
For book smarts, I have an MBA in Organizational Development from Clarkson University. I graduated from Leadership Champlain and earned certificates in Nonprofit Management and Results-Based Accountability, and several others related to career development, facilitation/training, and HR. I am honored to have been named a Rising Star (40 under 40) by Vermont Business Magazine.
So what are you waiting for? I can coach you wherever you are. Let’s get started!
