Congratulations on demonstrating the commitment and motivation to elevate your presence and competency as a Coach!

Whether you are a new coach seeking your ACC or PCC, or a current coach in need of mentor coach hours, or wanting to grow your understanding and application of the coaching competencies, this program has been created with you in mind!


Mentor Coaching consists of coaching and feedback in a collaborative, appreciative and dialogued process based on an observed or recorded coaching session to increase your capability as a coach, in alignment with the ICF Core Competencies.

Mentoring provides professional assistance in achieving and demonstrating the levels of coaching competency and capability demanded by the coaching profession.


Mentor Coaching takes place over an extended time (three-month minimum) in a cycle that allows for listening and feedback from the Mentor Coach while also allowing reflection and practice on the part of the individual being mentored.

For those seeking credentialing or renewal, this program provides the required 10 mentoring hours including the mandatory 3 hours of one-on-one coaching and feedback. This group mentoring will take place in small groups of no more than 8 coaches to ensure individualized attention is given to each participant.


As coaches it is easy to stray so far into the coaching process that we become less mindful of the integration of the competencies in creating the total experience. This provides an immersion in the coaching mindset as it best serves your client throughout each session. Together we will take a deep dive into exploring and cultivating our coaching mindsets to ensure the meaning within every coaching interaction.


As your mentor coach I will walk alongside you on your journey towards achieving the highest standard of coaching, which will enable you to guide those you are called to serve on a professional and personally rewarding experience.

You will share this journey with other like-minded coaches who, like yourself, are challenging themselves to climb higher in life and business.

The group program will be conducted via Zoom video conference sessions. The group sessions will be held once a week for six weeks over 90 days . Each group session will be 90 minutes in duration. In addition to the group sessions you will book your three one-on-one mentor coaching sessions, individually.. Upon completion of this program you will have satisfied the Mentor Coach requirement for your credentialing.


  • 5 - 90 minute group coaching sessions (over a 90 day period)
  • 3 hours of one-on-one coaching and mentoring (optional)
  • Support in navigating the credentialing process

This program fully satisfies the ICF requirements for mentor coaching, allowing 7 hours of group and the option for 3 hours of one-on-one individual mentor coaching.


  • You are ready to take the final steps to become an ICF ACC or PCC credentialed coach
  • Your are in the process of submitting your application for your ACC or PCC credential
  • You are renewing a current ICF credential that requires 10 hours of mentor coaching
  • You are preparing to take the ICF Coach Knowledge Assessment
  • You want to master the application of the coaching competencies and framework


Making a decision to become a coach has changed my life. The rigorous coaching certification program was a journey in itself and afforded me the opportunity to further connect with my life purpose of serving others. I have learned that coaching is less about process and more about putting it to work for others, enabling people to get out of their head and into their heart, where things matter.

As a life-long educator, being part of someone else's growth has always motivated me. I am passionate about immersing others in the coaching experience, challenging them to explore insights that lead to action. It is in this space that they find the motivation to cultivate meaningful change which leads to sustainable growth. Once the spark is ignited there is no stopping the momentum.

I am grateful to have obtained my PCC credential and excited over being part of an internationally recognized discipline guided by a code of ethics. I have coached hundreds of leaders, coaches and potential coaches, serve as a local ICF Community Group leader and am a Feedback Coach for an ICF ACTP Coach Certification program.

Those I work with continually seek me out for advice and support, remarking on my listening, authenticity and deep desire to truly help. I am ever grateful to be involved in a such a humbling profession that is only limited by the number of lives one can touch.

Passionate and Motivated ICF PCC Coach Igniter!

I am passionate about the potential coaching has on positively impacting the world and I am motivated by the potential of igniting the sparks that will enable new and existing coaches to ignite growth and hope in others.

I possess an innate ability to help people discover and apply their core potential and make progress towards their vision by considering possibilities in their lives and connecting with opportunity amidst ongoing change and uncertainty.

As a learning innovator and head of a corporate university for 25 years, I cultivated the knowledge and skills needed to help others grow. My background in learning and development has enabled me to synthesize and systematize information and knowledge to ensure applicability and practicality in the real world.

Although I have had the opportunity to engage in thousands of conversations with a variety of people, from executive leaders to frontline workers, I never experienced the sheer power and value of a good coaching conversation and its impact on changing lives by producing sustainable results.

I have had the distinct privilege to work with hundreds of coach candidates in a recognized ICF ACTP education program. These interactions have planted the seeds for the cultivation of this program as I realized the ongoing support needed on the journey to obtaining and upholding the valued ICF credentials.

Whether you are a business with a strategic focus, a professional looking to transition to the next level, or someone looking to jumpstart your business or your life, I am committed to your growth and transformation and look forward to engaging with you soon!
