I am a veteran Philadelphia attorney and certified professional coach who helps clients reinvigorate their careers, polish business development skills and rediscover their sense of purpose. A former board member of the International Coach Federation’s Philadelphia chapter, I have successfully coached a best-selling author, lawyers, and chief executives. Firms have also hired me, a former in-house counsel, to work directly with entry level lawyers to improve performance and increase their early contributions to the firm. I hold a BA and JD from Temple University and Temple University School of Law in Philadelphia.

I am a regular contributor on The Legal Intelligencer and The Huffington Post. Read my latest articles:
