Cindy has a deep passion for unlocking the potential in others and the transformation of individuals and teams, with an attention to self-awareness and awareness of others.



Cindy is a multifaceted marketing expert and leadership coach with diverse experience in leading, directing and execution of integrated global marketing and business strategies in entrepreneurial and large organizations for both profit and non-profit environments. She has been involved in an array of industries that have provided a broad base of experience: telecommunications, technology, health care, non-profit, global development, higher education and the social impact sector.

Her balance of corporate and non-profit experience has provided a depth of insight and perspective on how leaders and teams operate and highlighted the critical understanding that, as organizations and as people, we are all far more alike than we are different. She learned that she has a unique ability to unlock the potential in others and views communications and relationships as key to enabling authentic leadership, as well as high performing teams.
