“A highly creative self-starter, if I didn't see the job out there I wanted, I invented it. A fierce advocate for justice with a trust in the positive tendency for growth in human beings, I have played the roles of facilitator, program designer, teacher, and evaluator for non-profits, governments, and foundations, running my own consulting practice since I was 25 years old.
"The world has a way of swallowing you up though, if you aren't careful. After a house and two kids, I felt like my dreams had to be put on hold. Through coaching I came to remember my creative core self and began to work again from a place of possibility rather than scarcity."
Today, Rebecca coaches and trains managers, parents, educators and social entrepreneurs to build vibrant learning communities at work, at home and for social change. This passion has led her to work towards ending maternal mortality in Central America with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, coach B-corps company CEOs, and support leaders redesigning public education in the U.S. She also writes a blog entitled, "Transitions."
"I love working with leaders who want to make a difference in the world, and who want to do so without compromising their health and well-being."
Rebecca’s past experiences make her a natural choice for coaching emerging leaders. She co-authored “Plan to Lead”, a curriculum (available in English and Spanish) for a 20 hour course that has supported hundreds of parents advocate for quality public education. During her tenure at the Public Health Institute, Rebecca led the pilot application of “EvaluLEAD” an open-systems approach to evaluating leadership used all over the world.
When she isn’t focused on individual and organizational transformation as a coach, Rebecca’s passion lies in the performing arts. She has danced for more than 20 years with a program called “Rhythm and Motion” in San Francisco. She is also an avid traveler and every other summer she goes with her husband and their two children to Andalusia, Spain where her husband grew up and the homeland of her paternal grandparents.
