Maria became an executive coach because she believes we can solve the problems facing our world today by bringing out the best in each one of us, challenging the status quo and by thinking differently about who we are and what we do, one leader, one team and one company at a time. She brings her clients in-depth CliftonStrengths® expertise and as a coach she helps each client turn talent into strength in their role as a leader in business and of others. Maria’s certifications include the CPCC Certification from The Coaches Training Institute and an ACC from ICF The International Coach Federation. The greatest value she brings to her clients is that she will bring out the best in people with a very direct, open and holistic approach.


She balances her ability to be direct, to challenge and push. Maria’s strong desire to make positive sustainable changes in leaders’ thinking, action and emotion, will affect every aspect of his or her life and the live’s of those around them.

Maria quickly helps leaders identify their talent, take ownership of who they are, and aim their strengths toward your coaching goals. Each leader achieves deeper personal fulfillment with exceptional professional performance. Maria also works with leaders who “overdo” their talent, causing challenges for them and those around them. Maria empowers leaders to get even better by partnering with each client to build greater self-awareness and strong change strategies that are still very authentic to each client.
