I’m an ICF-certified coach and specialize in working with executives who want to improve their performance as managers, leaders and visionaries; individuals who want to make major career transitions; and women who have or have had cancer.  Volo means ‘to be willing’ or ‘to soar,’ and embodies my coaching philosophy and values – you must be willing to take chances and move beyond your comfort zone in order to find the success you really want.

I help people who want to make profound changes in their professional and personal lives and achieve greater success. I help people in critical areas from improving communications skills in the workplace to developing stronger, more effective relationships; and from evaluating new career opportunities and making career changes to finding a whole new life direction and purpose after experiencing major illness. With over 20 years of experience mentoring and coaching, I can help you make positive changes to create the career and life you deserve!

In addition to earning my coaching certification and credentials, I have a BA in Communications and an MBA in Management. I’ve been involved with coaching and mentoring in various forms since my undergraduate days at U.C. San Diego, where I ran the University’s internship program. I spent 15 years working with managers and executives in a wide variety of high tech companies, from start-ups to multi-billion dollar corporations like Sun Microsystems, with an emphasis on the development of their strategic, communications and management skills. Following the crash of the dot.com economy, I recognized a growing need for one-on-one coaching and started Volo Coaching to support people reach their goals, both professional and personal.

Having lost both parents to long-term illness and survived cancer myself, I am particularly attuned to how major life events can create the opportunity for positive changes in life.

My goal is to support each client in

  • moving past their “comfortable discomfort” in order to reach their goals;
  • celebrating their unique talents, skills and abilities; and
  • creating the success they want in life.
