I was not really sure what to expect out of a coaching session, but I am so glad I had the chance to meet with Maureen! In our exploratory session, I felt seen, listened to, equipped and energized to make steps ahead. Maureen's insight and informed listening helped me recognize my own capability and hopes. Having space to process the many complex dynamics of my life at this moment helped me view these issues with greater compassion and clarity, and I have frequently returned to some of the tools we identified as potentially helpful during our session together. I would eagerly recommend coaching with Maureen to those considering it!
I found my call with Maureen to be encouraging and calming at the same time to allow me mind space to focus on next steps. She's great!
Maureen’s thoughtful questioning really helped me focus and think about issues in a way I haven’t before. We were able to identify the mental speed bumps slowing down progress toward my goals and work through ways to mitigate them in the future. She helped me clarify my vision and think through a realistic plan to achieve it. Her positivity and insight left me energized and ready to crush my goals!
Maureen helped me clarify my own goals and steps to accomplish those goals. I appreciate her reflective style and how she brings a non-judgmental presence to the coaching relationship. After one session, I felt ready to tackle challenges!
Maureen cuts right through the malarky - she digs into what you'd like to gloss over, she shines a light on the things that need to be cultivated in order for growth to happen. She's extraordinarily capable and I'm grateful for the opportunity to work with her.
I found my coaching session to be very beneficial and energizing. It is great to be able to share honest thoughts without feeling disloyal to my organization or in danger failing a job assessment. We all I think feel more wary of job security too in this day and age!
Maureen is an excellent coach who has provided me affirmation or guidance, as necessary, as I have transitioned from a for-profit business environment into a development executive.

Maureen's insights have been instrumental to our recent growth. She not only provided a thorough analysis of our development department, but she was also a fantastic partner to answer any questions or troubleshoot problem areas - even today, years later. I cannot recommend Maureen's services enough!

I have never met a more dedicated and creative person than Maureen. I thought I worked hard…until I met her. She not only gets the job done, she gets in done in a way that no one else can—creatively, efficiently, correctly—and she gets results, every time. I worked on the most successful marketing/fundraising project of my career with Maureen and I wouldn’t have had anyone else by my side to accomplish my goals. She not only understands the fundamentals of effective fundraising, but she also keeps up with new trends and vehicles, so that her work is always fresh for her clients. I would (and have, several times) recommend her for your next project.
