“Time invested in Renée’s coaching program allowed me to listen deeply, understand myself/others with compassion, and live with intent. I have become stronger and more sustainable in my capabilities and capacities at work and at home. The transition period into a new job and living abroad could not have been a better time to engage Renée. The six-month coaching program began with a set of thought provoking questions to gain clarity about my life and expectations. Her program doesn’t end with self-awareness but it continues on as a form of active learning that transfers awareness to behavior change. Not only do I know better, but I actually live better.” 


Renée is an executive and life coach, organizational development consultant, leadership development expert, workshop leader and writer who has been transforming organizations, teams and the careers of talented and ambitious professionals, entrepreneurs, changemakers and executives for over 20 years.

Renée has built organizational and people capability in over 40 countries in the biotech, pharmaceutical, health care, technology, internet, and service industries, an exciting career that included her own five-year executive expatriate assignment in Switzerland.

Leveraging research and methodologies in leadership, neuroscience, mindfulness and human dynamics, Renée provides useable and repeatable frameworks and practices that inspire clients to engage more authentically, compassionately and consciously—even in the midst of conflict and challenge.

Today Renée runs her own global coaching and consulting practice out of California, with an important focus on women and leadership. She believes that the new era of women’s leadership calls us to step more fully into our role as changemakers, requiring greater attention to self-care and our true aspirations. Only then can women achieve the freedom, discernment and choiceful balance needed to do their best work.

Renée sees her clients as growing human beings who have an important life purpose. Every time they make a commitment to become more aware, to honor our potential, and to follow through on their commitments to self and others, they open possibilities for the world to support us far beyond how they even imagined.

She creates space for them to listen to themselves more deeply. At some level, they already know what is right for them. Renée helps them to listen to themselves with more curiosity, truthfulness and trust to either sit with or act upon what they discover or becomes more clear.

Self-observation and self-reflection are two fundamental practices her clients learn to master. They are foundational to their coaching program and key to a life of continuous growth and development.
