With 20+ years of experience in coaching, consulting, and professional services, I deliver value through a unique combination of corporate experience and coaching perspective. In my previous roles as a consultant and technology services leader, I worked on business innovation projects throughout the U.S, as well as in Europe and the Philippines. I also turned around a non-profit organization dedicated to administering funding for research to benefit U.S. military veterans. A common thread throughout my career has been building strong connections and relationships, with an unwavering commitment to improving the lives and careers of others.
An Executive Coach, I specialize in leadership, development, and career management and strategy for professionals and executives across industries and across the globe. I’m passionate about helping people expand their self-awareness and leadership skills to realize their full potential to achieve personal, career and organizational goals. My objective is to help people feel their best because they’re being and doing their best.
A Chicago native, I enjoy traveling to experience other parts of the world, though I’m always happy to return home. In addition to enjoying running, golf, and recreational cycling, I’m an avid learner and am always pursuing a steady stream of personal / professional development opportunities. In my spare time, I love watching my favorite sports teams – the Chicago Cubs and the Northwestern University Wildcats.
What Coaching clients are saying:
"I had the blessing to have Jill coach me during my recent career search. She has been extremely kind, supportive, resourceful and encouraging. Jill has guided me with her knowledge and her gentle firmness. Anytime I had questions, she patiently answered them. After a couple of months of Jill's guidance, I have landed a job that I truly love! What I like about her is that she tells it as it is, that she is patient, knowledgeable, and empathetic. I would definitely recommend her!"

"In a nutshell - Jill is fantastic! I came to Jill at a very confusing stage in my life and career. I had experienced some tough personal losses which affected me deeply, personally and in my professional life as well. I was confused, found myself lacking self-confidence that I used to possess in abundance, and needed direction and guidance to help me make the right choices and stay focused. Jill helped me network and deliver the right messages effectively. It's invaluable to have her objective support and professional guidance that she delivers with a personable touch. If you want to improve your career and get happier at work and life, you must go to Jill! You will be better for it."

It’s important for me to meet my clients where they are, allowing them to embrace their personal style and make it work for them. I create a customized coaching experience built on a solid foundation of coaching theory and practical application. While clients often come to me with career goals or challenges, I understand that life and career are inextricably intertwined. My focus is on the whole person, fostering deeper exploration, more profound development, and better results.
At the same time, my clients appreciate my ability to combine my business experience and expertise with coaching perspective and empathy. Combining both rigorous coaching training and real-world business experience, I offer a unique skill set to help my clients add value and grow as leaders in the workplace. My ability to relate to people and their experiences allows me to connect with clients and guide them to transformational growth and achieve their desired outcomes.
I’m also a strong believer in the Enneagram as an incredibly powerful tool for understanding behavior and the underlying motivators behind it. Whether for personal or professional development, it can be a game-changer and will likely add value across all aspects of your life. Beyond understanding our default behaviors today, it also provides a path for transcending our dominant type to integrate a full range of behavior. I leverage the Enneagram in coaching engagements, where appropriate, and conduct workshops on the topic.
