"Sarah helped our whole team build muscle to push back on the each other when we were not following the systems set in place helping to avoid wasting time and creating double work. Her coaching helped us eliminate inefficiencies and get better at setting our priorities and holding each other accountable."
Owner, Promotional Products Company
"I have found and continue to find our sessions enable my focus and extremely insightful. Therefore, as I am sure you know, I continue to be excited about our work together and am very happy to renew."
– Jim Noble
Senior Portfolio Manager, Noble Wealth Management
"Sarah helped me identify small and larger issues that were acting as roadblocks for me and insightful ways to work through them. She’s very good at helping you look at an issue broadly and from many perspectives, and then she helps you push that issue to a further level of understanding and resolution. Working with Sarah is a very comfortable and natural process – like talking to a very good friend – but at the end of each session, you’re amazed how much you have learned about yourself and your current situation. Sarah is an excellent coach, she’s very intelligent, and she’s very efficient. Plus, she holds you accountable to your plan to move forward."
Attorney and Business Owner
"Sarah is deeply trustworthy, and able to be totally present with others both in the midst of great emotion and in the times when it’s hard to tap into your own emotions. She is a calming and energizing presence, and has an intuitive sense for where you need to be met, while also being careful to check in with you to see if you are on the same page. Sarah is an encouraging and empowering guide and partner in the coaching process."
"I really enjoy Sarah’s supportive, deliberative approach, and would recommend her to anybody who’s struggling either to handle growth, or to determine the long-term direction for their company – and their role as its leader."
– Jim Tincher

"Working with Sarah was such a positive experience for me. Sarah helped me better define what is truly important to me in my career and personal life. As a result, I was able to become more self-reflective and confident, enhancing my ability to handle difficult work situations and achieving my goals as a clinical leader and researcher. I highly recommend Sarah for outstanding professional coaching!"

"We are so thankful for your help and support, as well as your expertise in visioning and coaching. We really did wonder how you might facilitate a session with us, and you were simply spectacular."
– T. & J.
Owners & Marriage Partners, Marketing Agency
"Sarah’s coaching came at a crossroads in my life. On the surface, I was in a successful career and adequately balancing work and family life. But Sarah helped me tap into my deeper self and really discern what I wanted and needed. Turns out I was fighting with myself, and it was Sarah’s ability to help me hear my own inner voice that made me realize it. Since working with Sarah I have made some significant changes in my life, and I have never been happier or more satisfied!"
"Working with Sarah was fantastic. She is so intuitive and such a thoughtful listener; she is not afraid to challenge and push but also easily encourages and celebrates. She is authentic and transparent. I always felt she was engaged and able to customize her approach to what worked best for me and my communication style and personality. She does not coach out of a box."
Owner, Dental Practice
"So thankful for the questions you have asked me over the past few months and the lack of confidence in myself you helped me recognize and learn from. Having you "on my team" has changed my life forever.
Thank you for being part of the most powerful year of my life."
– Jen Roa
District Manager, Coffee Company, Canada
"Before working with Sarah I knew there was something missing and not right with the path I was on but I kept spinning my wheels trying to figure out what it was and what I really wanted. Working with Sarah helped what was already inside of me to emerge. Having her as a sounding board and someone who could push me with difficult questions provided that extra nudge I needed to get over the hurdle of my own insecurities. I'm embarking on a new venture employment wise I that I hadn't had the courage do try before thanks to coaching from Sarah."
I would tell a friend " Sarah was a pleasure to work with. She is professional, courteous, and caring. Sarah has a good sense of how much to push and when to back off. She was always well prepared for our appointments and held me to follow-up. I will definitely work with her again and strongly recommend her to others."
"(Sarah) is incredibly talented at asking powerful questions that help me gain clarity or find the patterns behind the concerns I have. I can see the long-lasting change that Sarah’s work has created in my thought patterns and my ability to navigate leadership and team challenges with confidence, thoughtfulness, and resilience."

"You have been such a fantastic and compassionate guide through this process. I am also grateful for the Enneagram as an important tool for identifying personality traits and grounding our conversations in a framework."
Program Director, Higher Ed.
"Thanks for your ability to pull off our “higher ed blinders” to view problems we confront in a wider context. This is needed knowledge."
Vice President of Academic Affairs
"Sarah truly met me where I was at, which was honestly a bit all over! She was both a mirror and a compass for me, but never in a prescriptive way. Her use of enneagram as tool was both empowering and enlightening. As we navigated my career transition, she also helped me unlock new lenses through which to see myself as a leader. I can’t recommend her enough."
Senior Product Manager
"I am in the middle of our annual reviews and I continue hear how much you have pushed each leader to grow. You were clearly a great choice to help us go to the next level."
– Chad Dunkley
CEO, New Horizons Academy
Executive Director, Non-profit.
"As an organization, many of our decisions are made by gathering information from everyone and then coming to consensus. Sarah led her sessions in the same way. This allowed leaders to feel heard, to learn, and gain valuable leadership tools.
[During the pandemic] Sarah changed content to respond to the current situation and was flexible with scheduling. The ability to “gather”, even remotely, provided sustenance for our leadership team, who were worn down and feeling isolated. The content, Leading from Where you Are, provided affirmation, connection, and simple strategies for relieving stress and continuing to lead, despite the challenges.
Sarah created space for those assembled to talk about their frustrations and fears, and again gave simple tools for leading through the challenges. She provided exercises that individual teams could use to practice the work. We are delighted to continue working with Sarah to create a leadership academy for our current and future leaders."
