“Establishing a consistent mindfulness practice is the foundation of my coaching practice – whether our goal is for optimizing health or emotional intelligence, increasing employee engagement, or working on vision and strategy, I’ve witnessed firsthand the breakthroughs that can be achieved through these powerful practices.”
