About

image005

Over 25 years experience in various functions, mainly in Human Resources, with multinationals and international organisations and 15 years as a trained Counsellor and Coach.

Some of the HR positions I’ve held with Europe-wide responsibilities were as Leadership and Development Manager, HR Director, and Recruitment and Development Manager.

As a Coach and Psychosocial Counsellor, I have become increasingly interested in somatic psychology and neuroscience of the mind and body and how these approaches make the process of change more effective and efficient.

Originally from the United States, I have been living and working in Switzerland for more than 20 years.  I work in both English and French.  I am resourced and re-energised by being out in nature enjoying a variety of outdoor sports, meditation, yoga, and time with family and friends.
