The best leaders have courage to ask for help and find the way forward when stuck. If you want to build strategies, an action plan, and support to achieve personal and professional goals, I am here to help!
I am devoted to helping existing and aspiring leaders grow and perform at their fullest potential. During my 23-year career of leading teams at global organizations, I've been successful as a Leadership, Learning & Talent Development, Strategic Operations Management, Service Transformation, and Organizational Design executive and a Certified Executive Coach.

As a leadership and career coach, I've partnered with the executives from Anthem, Macy’s, Interstate Hotels, Ciox Health, YPO, Johns Hopkins University, Booz Allen, and others.
Previously I worked at YPO, an exclusive network of leaders, and counseled/coached C-Suite executives on the development of seven award-winning education programs. I co-developed YPO Innovation Program, enhancing lifelong learning experience for CEOs. Prior to YPO, at BT I was a senior Leadership Board member, managing Service Transformation, Organizational Development, Learning and Development, and Operations for a $500 million division. I led and coached global teams supporting five global sites and customers located in 178 countries. I was honored with three All-Star Awards for contributing to 35% rev. growth.

Cybersecurity Executive | Governance, Risk and Compliance
Organizational Change Executive
Thank you Alex for all of your hard work. I look forward to working with you again.
Senior VP, Information Security Policy Management | Cybersecurity and Information Technology (IT) Executive
Alex gave me frank and neutral advice and direction to find my leadership voice and style again. She worked with me to say “no” to requests strategically and in a way that was positive for me and the requestors. She taught me how to replace "not letting anyone down" with how to preserve relationships.
Alex is constantly probing me for what is really important and provides suggestions for actions that may seem apparent, but crystal clear after discussions with her. With her guidance and experience, we developed my life mission and goals. I have been able to set, maintain and self-correct when others break boundaries. I am proud of my ability to continue to live an authentic life both professionally and personally with boundaries that reflect my needs, wants, and values. If you need a spark of inspiration and a mentor, and you are ready to do the significant work yourself to achieve your goals, Alex is the partner for you! She has changed my life, both personally and professionally."
