“I really enjoyed working with Maria over the last 6 months. I was at a crossroads in my career and she was there to explore my options and guide me through my job search process. Figuring out what the next step in my career was emotionally draining, especially during the pandemic, but Maria was there to help ground me and me keep things in perspective. She asked me a lot of insightful questions that made me really think about what I wanted out of life. Our 1-1 coaching sessions really helped me keep my anxiety in check, especially during the interview process. I’m happy to say that with the help of Maria, I was able to secure a new role at a new company! Thanks Maria! ”

I had found myself at a plateau with my life and career and I needed to find a direction I was passionate about again. Maria helped me uncover some core beliefs that had been holding me back, helping me find my
flow of motivation and presence. Now I have committed to larger, more aligned and ambitious goals that I never would have considered tackling before working with her.

If you want to increase your ability as a leader to engage, align, inspire and people to act, then look no further.
Leaders who lack executive presence usually do not progress in their careers, despite having the necessary experience and qualifications. Gaining executive presence can often be the missing link between merit and success!
Whether you’re a new or seasoned leader, it’s essential to have a refined set of skills in order to establish executive presence, have more influence and seek higher impact at a personal and professional level.
Together we’ll work on helping you to lead others by cultivating your awareness, expanding your curiosity, shaping your communication, holding yourself accountable, sharing your ideas to inspire action, striving for greatness through valuing differences, integrity through aligning thoughts and enhancing the possibility mindset to showcase the essence of your leadership brand.
I also specifically help women in tech who are looking to reach their full leadership potential through refining their executive presence to match their qualifications, knowledge and performance. My past projects have included the 'Women in Tech' program with LinkedIn, developed to educate, equip and empower women with the necessary skills and confidence to rise to the top ranks of leadership, along with other projects including "High Performing Leaders" with Twitch, "Reddit's Key Talent Program" with Reddit and others organizations such as HubSpot and G-Hub just to mention a few.
As a leader, it’s the projection of credibility, assertiveness, care and confidence that makes us stand out. Let's uncover the blind spots in your soft skills that will get you to the next level you're looking for in your organization.

“I had the lovely privilege of working with Maria as a career coach over the past three months. She has been a shining light. Maria gave me a fresh perspective on my work-life balance and helped guide me to find ways to focus on my career path, think outside the box, and work towards my goals. She is attentive, helpful, and kind. I would suggest her to anyone looking to unlock their potential. ”
"I came into career coaching without much knowledge of what it was but left after 6 sessions feeling like I had grown enormously in my professional AND personal life. Maria was able to identify my blind spots. She encouraged me to lean into what I already had going, and tend to my areas of growth. I appreciate Maria's infectious positive energy, patience, and motivation. I feel so lucky and I'm definitely the better for it"
