Hi, I’m Sage.

My work is about powerful coaching, training, and mentorship to create connected leadership, engaged organizations, and positive social impact.  (with lots of fun, curiosity, encouragement)

  With a keen ability to see what’s holding you back, and where your deepest talents lie, I support you to shift your mindset and then take massive action towards your vision.  This “insight + action” approach empowers you to express your strengths and cultivate deeper connections in order to make the impact you’ve been dying to make by being the leader you were born to be.  

How do you really want to live, love, and lead?

With a sense of joy and meaning,

a foundation of healthy and happy relationships,

and an ethos of inclusivity, fairness, and contribution.

Great, me too!
