More than 8 years ago I joined a leadership development group, now called Townsend Leadership Program. Not only did I learn practical business and leadership skills, but I experienced deep healing and development of character that I didn't even know I needed. 

With the support of the group and my highly skilled director, areas where I'd been stuck were exposed and healed, ultimately launching me toward success I didn't even know I was capable of. It is vulnerable. It is hard. And it is the most life enhancing process I'm aware of. So I continue to invest in myself in this way each year, undaunted in my love and leadership to others.

Engaging in my own growth work as a leader 8+ years ago through the programs I now offer totally transformed my life through the ways I love and lead.

A few of my 
favorite things

I have 4 awesome kids & am married to my favorite guy - they're the best to travel, learn, explore and play with.

I'm an enneagram 7, which translates into my love for variety and adventure.

As a prof at Townsend Institute for Leadership & Counseling I join rockstars in our field to help Masters students grow in character & competency.

I am obsessed with water and come alive anytime I can be on it. Historically a skiier, I've now found myself as equally obsessed with surfing.

As a growth & relationship junkie, my favorite conversations include vulnerability and critical thought, enjoyed best over wine & cheese.

During my year long commitment to TLP I was able to go deep. Shedding light into the darkest pieces of my life. Those dark places no longer feel shameful, but light and part of my story. I will forever be changed by the work I put into myself and I will continue to do work for the rest of my life. Because I'm worth it.

Madeline has been an amazing coach and very exciting to work with. She is extremely empathetic and attuned to our conversations. She is intuitive about things I don’t see for myself to grow and continue my leadership development. She has helped me to forgive, love and accept myself for who I am and who I am becoming. I always leave her coaching sessions listened to, challenged and encouraged.
