Lead with Story.
Let Your Story Do the Heavy Lifting
As a leadership strategist and storytelling coach, I am committed to helping women be seen, heard, promoted—and rewarded—as the agents of change the workplace and the world is dying to see. And all of it requires fearlessly owning your leadership story, grabbing control your narrative, and finding ways to deploy it. For everyone’s benefit.
Let’s be clear: leadership is not necessarily about striving for the corner office. It’s about claiming your agency. Getting stuff done. Creating results. Wherever you are.
So if your career looks good from the outside, but inside you just can’t get traction, let’s find why so you can own your story, tell your story, and move mountains.

Damn Fine Words
Tina Schade Willis, MD, Professor, Pediatric Critical Care
“Lisa is a fantastic coach for women (and men) in multiple career paths including my area of academic medicine. She changed my approach and my perspective, and helped me achieve goals that I did not previously consider attainable.”
Liz O’Sullivan, Security Engineer
“I am so happy to recommend Lisa. Working with Lisa is both fun and demanding. Demanding, because she requires you to think—she doesn't give you the answers, but she gives you all the tools to find them. She taught me how to identify my strengths and more importantly, how to sell them to potential employers! I learned how to negotiate what I was worth in a way that appealed - and it has paid off as I have recently signed for my dream job. If you want to give your career a boost and enjoy yourself while doing it, working with Lisa will help you achieve those goals.”
Rebecca Dempster, Psychologist
“Lisa is a top-notch coach. She has a razor sharp focus that keeps her coaching practical and action-oriented. She's warm and compassionate, shows genuine interest and concern, and really knows her stuff! She took me from dread to confident. I have already recommended her to my network and wouldn't hesitate to work with her again.”
Natalie Pitman, HR Business Consultant
“Lisa facilitated the ‘Art of Workplace Coaching’ training for Senior Leaders at our Annual Summit. Lisa’s expertise in her field and passion is invigorating. At such a crucial moment in our organization Lisa was the perfect catalyst. I highly recommend engaging her.”
Eva Jannotta, Digital Marketing Strategist
“Lisa gave me the tools, coaching, and mindset shifts I needed to prepare for a SUPER important interview. First, her thoughtful questions helped me identify my position and values. Then she coached me to connect my Gallup Strengths with the prominent features of the position; prompted me to prepare stories to illustrate my experience; and gave me a list of interview FAQs so I could prepare my answers. She also helped me create questions to ask my interviewer so I could be more in control of the conversation. After coaching with Lisa I felt prepared, confident, and a partner in the interview process. The best part? I WAS OFFERED THE JOB EXACTLY A WEEK LATER!”
