It was a pleasure to work with her.
Andrew M, Director of Finance / CFO
Diane is truly a master of her craft. I most appreciate her ability to help me paint the future I want for myself and my business. She leaves no thought or idea unturned and allows me to discover for myself the decisions that I need to make and paths that I should walk down. Life is a journey and I would not be as far as I am on mine if I had not spent the time I did with Diane.

After a series of very effective career coaching sessions I hired Diane to conduct a one-day career development workshop with my marketing team. The response was unanimously positive! It gave my team members a chance to expand their thinking about their lives and careers and gave us tools to be more effective in our jobs and personal lives. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone who is leading a group of busy professionals.

I’m so thankful to the friend that recommended that initial conversation with Diane. I had no idea the difference the right ‘coach’ could make! Diane has helped me reflect on where I have been and where I want to be and has helped guide me to a better place both personally and professionally. She has an amazing ability to listen, pull out the most important pieces and then make suggestions that help you put them all in the right place. I highly recommend her if you know you want to make a positive change toward living a more fulfilled life.
Susan R, Executive Director NFP
Diane has a natural ability to help people see their own possibility. She has been more than a coach for me; she’s been a thought partner. My time with Diane has helped me define the steps that I need to take to make big changes. I’m certain with Diane as part of my team I will see big results. Thank you Diane.
