FOUNDER’S STORY

A corporate leader for more than 20 years, I managed teams that delivered strategy, leadership development, talent management, and change management consulting. I loved my work and colleagues, but after a major promotion in 2004, I felt stuck. The way I was working wasn’t working anymore, so I engaged a fabulous leadership coach who helped me transform how I thought and engaged as a leader. The introspective work and new practices enabled me to lead and live with more ease and effectiveness. My journey reignited my passion for authentic growth and a calling to work with leaders, individually and collectively. In 2012 I founded Stillwater Leadership to provide leaders the tools and support to thrive in today’s complex, demanding business environments. Our approach is grounded in real-world leadership experience and influenced by neuroscience, adult development, presence, body intelligence, and the practice of conscious self-discovery.
