" I not only learned a lot about myself, but about the leadership group I work very closely with and how best to work together."

I've had the immense pleasure of working with Heather in both group and individual coaching settings and she continues to impress me. I've done every personality and leadership assessment out there, and I've worked with several different leadership coaches over the years so I walked into my one-on-one coaching with Heather a little hesitant on if I was going to gain a ton from it. I'll be the first to admit, I was dead wrong! I not only learned a lot about myself, but about the leadership group I work very closely with and how best to work together.

And bonus, I feel I made a friend out of Heather! I'm lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her and look forward to continuing to take advantage of what she has to offer! -Amanda Hoffman, Chief Marketing Officer, Madwire

"Not only do I recommend Heather’s assessment to anyone looking for direction toward fulfillment in their own career or looking to motivate employees to their highest productivity and potential, but I think the assessment should be an absolute requirement for high school or college."

Even though successful and already well into my career, I was searching for answers to overdue questions of my conscience regarding my specific personal developed behaviors and interests. My goal was to take my career to the next level while placing more focus on personal fulfillment. In years past, I had taken other personality assessments like “StrengthsFinder”, but nothing to the depth or detail that Heather walks you through in her assessment. I was both amazed and relieved as my long-time suspicions and questions were answered along with suggested career paths for maximum personal fulfillment. Heather studies your results and commits to a lengthy one-on-one debrief so that you thoroughly understand your assessment and what specific characteristics are behind your drive in life. Not only do I recommend Heather’s assessment to anyone looking for direction toward fulfillment in their own career or looking to motivate employees to their highest productivity and potential, but I think the assessment should be an absolute requirement for high school or college. Armed with this information at a young age, people could skip the trial-and-error method and immediately start in a more satisfying and fulfilling career. - Pete Jacobson, Mechanical Engineer

Working with Heather has been one of the biggest blessings in my career and even in my personal life. She has encouraged me, lifted me up, and coached me into being a better leader and business owner. Heather has an incredible way connecting and really understanding what is keeping me “stuck” and developing a plan to not only get “unstuck” but to flourish.

"Heather’s coaching through my Birkman has provided a level of personal and professional development that I haven’t experience in my 20 year career."

I started coaching because I was struggling to assess the next chapter in my career and felt miss-casted in my own story. Heather’s coaching through my Birkman has provided a level of personal and professional development that I haven’t experience in my 20 year career.

It became a discovery into why I show up the way I do. It uncovered what I am good at and reinforced what I really love (which is not always the same thing). Once grounded, I was able to create frame work for a growth plan that balances my desire for professional development, my need for stability and my endless craving to create.

I cannot overstate how rewarding this experience has been. I am 48 years old. Brain fog is real. My mental and physical heath is better and I have a clear line of site for this next chapter.

I chose to do coaching with Heather because of her entrepreneurial spirit and faith. I admire those that are risk takers. Her light shines so bright. -Julie Jones, District Manager, Starbucks

"I highly, highly recommend Heather as an executive coach."

Managing a large team remotely, in a post-COVID world presented new challenges. I reached out to Heather, hoping she could take my leadership game to a new level. And I was not disappointed! I highly, highly recommend Heather as an executive coach. I had the pleasure of working with Heather one on one, in a small group and large group format. I love that she has helped me be a better version of myself, and lean into my natural strengths. She also takes a very holistic view, acknowledging that every area of our lives impacts the others. The Birkman assessment that she uses is something I wish I would have had years ago when I first got into a people management role. If you're looking to be the best leader you can be for your team, coworkers, customers and company, as well as positively impact other areas of your life, Heather is your gal! -Rachel LaFollette, Chief Customer Officer, Madwire

"The time I’ve invested in coaching with Heather is priceless because it’s time I wouldn’t have taken for myself."

My primary reason to seek coaching was to re-examine the professional direction I was taking. Life is too short to not be doing what you love, especially if your God given talents aren’t being utilized or maximized and I want to make the most of each moment I’m given.

I’ve known Heather almost 15 years and have always admired and respected her personally and professionally. When she announced that she was coaching I learned more about the initial assessment, which is enlightening beyond belief, and knew that working with her was a great fit to help me reach my goals.

It’s early in the process, but I’ve already noticed a deeper awareness of my strengths and areas where God has placed on my heart to nurture. Life gets so busy that overlooking our strengths is easy and hearing God’s plan for you is difficult at best. The time I’ve invested in coaching with Heather is priceless because it’s time I wouldn’t have taken for myself. -Tamara Sherrill, Real Estate Broker Associate

"The benefits of coaching have been rewarding"

I started coaching because I want to write a book. I needed someone to meet with me on a regular basis, to motivate and guide me toward completing a single task, one step at a time. It couldn’t be just anyone. This person would have to have that certain “something”, that certain “chemistry” that awakens my spirit. I heard Heather speak on a number of occasions, and was enamored by her poise, knowledge of the subject she was addressing, and her professional demeanor. She had that certain “something.”

I chose Heather because I wanted to get serious about writing. I knew she could help me focus, hold me to high standards, and provide helpful hints to accomplish my goal. She has a very calming effect on me. I need someone like her to corral my energy and direct it toward my writing. I knew her and I would be a perfect match. Our devotion to family is very important to both of us. That was a huge factor in choosing Heather. I admire how her and her husband, Rob, have raised their four children. She is active in their lives, makes herself visible, and approachable in our community, and the church we attend.

The benefits of coaching have been rewarding. It is a luxury in today’s busy world to have an opportunity to sit down, one-on-one and have an intelligent conversation, or any kind of conversation for that matter, and coaching provides me with that luxury. I look forward to our meetings together over a hot cup of coffee, and report to her my progress in this project I so deeply desire to finish. Most of all, I love the laughter we share.

*Footnote: Coaching, for me, is the only path that will lead me to accomplish my goal. Otherwise, I would not take my writing serious. Heather’s my coach, my friend, and my Head Cheerleader. I can’t and won’t let her down. -Genie Petrocco, Author

"I highly recommend Heather to anyone looking to grow professionally and personally."

The first meeting I attended where Heather presented was enlightening and really caught my attention. She is very personable and is able to connect with her clients in a genuine manner. She provides concrete examples and solutions that truly resonate with me. I have had the privilege to be in her leadership development program and after just one session, I gained so much knowledge and insight on what it means to be a good leader. After that first session was over, I found myself checking my calendar for when I was able to meet with her again because it was so insightful and encouraging to be a part of. I highly recommend Heather to anyone looking to grow professionally and personally. -Laura Billington, Lead Content Marketing Specialist, Madwire

"Heather helped me navigate my way to knowing and understanding my true self."

For as long as I can remember I’ve struggled with my core identity. I would always second guess EVERYTHING about myself. I have gone through most of my life feeling misunderstood. I wasn’t comfortable in my own skin until I took the Birkman assessment and had the debrief with Heather. Heather helped me navigate my way to knowing and understanding my true self. Because of Heather I began unapologetically living my best life. Heather not only listens, validates your feelings but she is hands down your BIGGEST cheerleader as you begin to understand and apply the insight you’ve learned about yourself personally and professionally. -Ray Weatherholt, Veteran and mom of 5

"It makes me feel more confident & in control"

Since working with you and taking look into my Birkman Assessment results, I have felt so much peace in my life. I am walking in my strengths in my business, but I am also able to use my strengths in my parenting & my marriage. It makes me feel more confident & in control. It has also given me the self-awareness to see how I show up when my needs are not met so I can ask fo the things I need. Absolutely worth every penny. -Becca Gonzalez, Money & Debt Coach, Becca Gonzalez Co.

"The benefits of coaching so far have been a much deeper knowledge of who I am"

I started coaching because I desired accountability as I pursued becoming the woman I was created to be!

I chose Heather for many reasons! I have known her for years and admired how she carries herself as a Christian, a wife and mother, a professional, and also as a friend. Earlier this year, we met to catch up on life. I was facing some big decisions on both a personal and professional level. Throughout our conversation, I found myself answering with the phrase “I don’t know” when Heather would ask me the questions: “What gives you life?” “Where do you see yourself in 5 years?” and “How confident are you?” I knew I desired to know the answers to these questions and could see that after many years of serving in the role of a missionary I had lost touch with a bit of myself. I called Heather to see if she could walk with me as I made some important decisions in my personal and professional career.

The benefits of coaching so far have been a much deeper knowledge of who I am! It has been a gift to name the causes and activities that bring joy to my life, to be comfortable acknowledging the relationships and environments that allow me to perform at my best, and find the areas of my life I desire to improve. I have a new confidence and wish that everyone would take the time to truly get to know the way God created them and how He is inviting them personally to care for His kingdom. If you desire to be more driven, focused, healthy, optimistic and confident, then I would encourage you to give coaching a try! It has been a great gift to my life. -Karianne Bolduc, Youth Ministry Director

Working with Heather has been KEY to my success! She listens (doesn’t judge), empathizes, encourages, builds me up, provokes new thoughts, asks the hard questions and helps lead me to find God’s will in every area of my life.

"Heather is an amazing leader."

Heather is an amazing leader. I attended a women’s night out speaking engagement and her delivery in sharing her message is gently yet set with conviction and truth. Being a part of several groups with Heather, has helped me to put into practice all that God has laid out for me. I have become stronger in my faith and have been able to implement these teachings into my daily life. Heather has a way of leaving other women “coming back for more” to build their faith and be the best woman God has planned for them. -Nikki Varney, Speech and Language Therapist
