"I worked with Elizabeth in the context of my KGC 2023 presentation. Elizabeth is GOLD. Pure gold gently nudging you in the right direction and very very carefully listening to you to help you distill and streamline what you want (or even sometimes don’t know you can) say.
Not only she helped me with my slides, but she also supported me to understand the real value proposition I have to offer with my presentation session which further resulted in several other pieces of communication I created. That is to say that Elizabeth infuses you with enthusiasm and helps you connect with your deepest message."

Amanda Colvin

Studio Leader

"Let me start by saying you need to hire Elizabeth as your coach! She has had a lasting positive impact on my career in just a handful of sessions. She has an amazing ability to shift your mindset while giving you applicable tools that you can use immediately. I am so hopeful for my future with her supporting me."

"Great leaders encourage leadership development by openly developing themselves."
