I’ve been in several leadership roles and wanted to continue elevating my executive skills and presence. I needed a trusted professional coach outside my organization – one without bias, internal experience, or knowledge. I was looking for an executive coach with my best interests in mind who would give honest and valuable advice, push me to the next level, and provide effective coaching in a safe and confidential setting. I wanted a safe environment where I didn’t have to politically or professionally worry about asking or doing something incorrectly while trying to learn and grow.

Nicole provides this container for me, and I’ve grown in my leadership and reconnected with my purpose, clarity, and self-confidence. The best part is that others have noticed, too!

Jamie B., Sr. Manager, Medical Device

I felt unsure about the direction I wanted to go with my career; now, I am on the path I believe is suitable for me. With coaching, I was able to work through whether to seek new opportunities, gain techniques to delegate specific tasks better, and protect my time to ensure I could be the leader I wanted to be.

Lawyer Turned Doctor of Leadership

I am a leadership and professional development professional, a soccer mom, a rescue dog momma, and a partner to my spouse of 16+ years.

I help high-achieving, experienced professionals advance to or succeed in a new or existing role.

In my personal experience, coaching created rapid results in my career and life, and I now use my training and experience to help other professionals do the same.

I am a certified executive coach through the Center for Executive Coaching, an International Coaching Federation (ICF) and Board Certified Coach (BCC) approved program.

I am also a certified Tiny Habits Coach and an Emotional Intelligence Practitioner with Genos, a top 20-ranked business assessment.

My passion is helping others implement small changes resulting in a high impact and creating greater personal and professional fulfillment.

Before opening LEAD'R® Method, I helped hundreds of lawyers navigate their career paths while coaching within my role as the director of student life and alumni engagement.

If you are looking to level up more quickly than you might on your own, reach out and schedule a call to explore more together.
