Misty has changed the way I view myself as leader. Before her guidance, I had a vague sense of what might be possible for me. I now feel in command of my career. I've seen other executive coaches in the past, and what sets Misty apart are her professionalism, her clear passion for helping her clients maintain their authenticity, and a great deal of skilled insights and questions.
Misty’s leadership coaching proved invaluable. She helped me determine my goals and assisted in developing an action plan that led me to land my dream job and hone my leadership skills. Her personable, empathetic style and positive demeanor are infectious, and it is evident during the first interaction that she genuinely cares. I knew she had other clients, but it felt as if I were her only client given her level of accessibility and thorough attention to detail. I would not be where I am professionally without Misty’s coaching – truly - and to this day, I consider her a dear friend.
As a seasoned leader, I have held many roles over the years and recently decided to make an important career transition. Misty helped me to reflect on my strengths and values as a leader, and how I want to apply these insights to be more effective and contribute in the ways that are meaningful to me. With empathy and keen insights, she’s helped me gain clarity and maintain confidence during challenging times. I have grown personally and professionally from working with Misty and highly recommend her.

She helped me communicate my achievements and goals in a clear and impactful way. Her feedback is always constructive and actionable. I always felt like she was completed invested in my success. Working with her has been a very rewarding experience.
Misty helped me understand my strengths and areas for growth as a leader, and to develop specific tools and strategies. She also helped me get clearer about who I am and what I want to do next. She encouraged me to believe in myself, and guided me to be open to the many possibilities that were in front of me. I appreciated her sense of humor and friendliness. She is completely approachable and easy to talk to. She's amazing, and I can't recommend her highly enough!
