Discover how to use your intellect to bring your heart’s desires to life!
You may know you need to make a change in your life and you’re a bit unsure on how to get started. Maybe you’ve tried to change in the past only to fall back into an old habit.

Often times fear of the unknown is holding us back, even when we know a change is needed.

A coach can help you identify what’s already there in your heart and mind…a complete individual assessment will be our guide.

It’s about digging deep and finding out what’s holding you back. Once identified, we will work together to move you in the direction of your goals.

Some reasons to consider coaching:

  • Career transitions
  • Workplace dynamics
  • Relationship dynamics
  • Learn Effective Communication
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Stress Management
  • Work and Life Alignment

Sessions are usually 60 minutes bi-weekly or monthly with 2-3 30 minute phone calls as additional support. Multiple session plans are available.


I love developing individuals and teams, and I also love to dance.  I have learned as much about human dynamics by dancing in a group as I have in my 23 years in hospital based and corporate healthcare.

I have attended countless team building sessions over the years and have grown to truly understand the benefits of an impactful event…teams can continue to draw strength and energy from the experience if it’s just the right blend of discomfort and accomplishment.

Learning choreography can be challenging and for many is far out of their comfort zone:

“Can I actually do this?”
“I’m not sure I’m good enough…”
“What if I mess up?”
“Everyone is watching me!”

These and many other performance anxieties occur in our work and personal lives quite often. Dance team building offers a safe place to notice how we react to these stressors as individuals, and also as teams. No skill is needed – only a willingness to fully participate!

I am fortunate to have the full partnership of Fernando Alers, founder of United Rhythms Dance Studio in Meriden, CT. He is a master choreographer and inspiring mentor who is truly passionate about developing people to realize their full potential.

This activity highly effective with almost any size team, and only moderate physical ability is required. Degree of difficulty and length of the session can be tailored to the needs of your team.

Call me today for additional details.

Teams are highly individual in design.  Aside from some basic core behaviors, I believe that each team’s ability to work cohesively comes from the synergy they create together.  If the team is not at peak performance, there is most likely an underlying dynamic that needs to be addressed.

I’ll get to know your team through interviews, interactions, and observations. We will work together to identify areas of focus that could include:

Building Trust
Team Empowerment
Time Management
Conflict Resolution
Effective Communication
How to Get Unstuck as a Team
Lack of Focus

Time frame for a complete assessment ranges from 2 to 6 weeks.


I’m an RN leader with 23 years of experience across the healthcare continuum and a lifelong student of human dynamics.  For the past 17 years, I have worked for DaVita, a Fortune 400 company that specializes in outpatient dialysis.  I am currently a national level director, managing a team of remote educators and providing coaching to teammates as needed.  I have also overseen the operation of multiple dialysis facilities in CT as well as served on a national innovation team for several years.

Highlights of my experience include:

  • Succession planning
  • Career transitions
  • Training teammates in:
    • Conflict Resolution
    • Managing Peers
    • Delegating and Time Management
  • Effective Communication
  • Crisis intervention
  • Creating individual performance improvement plans
  • Nurse Retention Interventions

In addition to my certifications, I have attended over 250 hours of DaVita professional development offerings with a focus on leadership and building great teams. (DaVita has been recognized for the 10th consecutive year by Training magazine as one of the “Top 125” companies for offering exceptional workforce training and leadership development programs. DaVita is the only national kidney care provider to earn a Top 125 designation.)

I have been dancing as part of an adult hip-hop group for over 4 years at United Rhythms in Meriden, CT. I have also performed in numerous United Rhythms productions. I was motivated to begin dancing when my younger son began dancing at age 4. He has a love and a passion for dance that is infectious and inspiring!

Team Building

“…our team had a blast. The nurses and managers were on their feet dancing the night away. What was best was Fernando’s personal story and how well he connected with the nurses in the room…it was a great experience that I would love others to have.”
