As a coach, I am passionate about helping people find their focus; that passion, calling, dream or vision that they’ve yet to accomplish or see realized. I will help them assess where they are, where they want to go and how to get there.

Some people have called me a “potential junkie.” It’s true! I see potential everywhere. I’m obsessed with helping people find their focus and turn their dreams and desires into a tangible vision with measurable goals. With the gift of faith, I love coming alongside people to help them clarify and live into their personal calling. I won’t do the work for you but I’ll be standing on the sidelines cheering for you at the top of my lungs (metaphorically or literally)!

I am also a Leader Breakthru approved coach and—utilizing Leader Breakthru resources—I coach leaders through each of these developmental experiences:
TRAC: Helping Christ-followers clarify where they are in their development
TRANSITION: Helping you survive and get all you can out of your in-between moment
CALLING: Clarifying life direction and the values that guide you
CONTRIBUTION: Discovering your unique influence
CONVERGENCE: Helping you to run the race so as to finish well

As one who has served in vocational ministry for more than 20 years I am keenly aware of the need for leaders to be deeply rooted and transformed from the inside out. I love helping leaders strengthen their leadership through holistic formation and spiritual growth for every season of life not as a side project but as a tangible means to enable them to flourish.

Trained through Coach Net and the GROW coaching models, I have coached pastors, church planters, ministry leaders, moms, entrepreneurs and others to realize their goals.

I currently serve as the pastor of Goodland Church in Santa Barbara, CA. I am ordained in the ECO Presbyterian denomination and hold two Masters degrees (MDiv and ThM) from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. I am also a certified fitness instructor and coach and avid runner and hiker.
