About Us

Our Mission

Getting teams right

We started CoachCruiting in 2015 with that simple idea. We saw business owners suffering, struggling under the weight of multiple roles, stuck in the feeling that they couldn’t delegate. And we saw employees floundering, unable to vault themselves from expert to leader, or trapped in conflict and misunderstandings with teammates.

But we knew there was a better way...

Our Mission Imge.png
Our goal is to help your business thrive by achieving optimal performance and job satisfaction. 

That’s why we take the time to understand your unique business. Our approach is relational, not transactional, because your team is one of a kind.

The Founder

"I first discovered my coaching strengths when I started receiving requests from personal and professional associates to “pick my brain.”  In 2007, my first coaching relationship was born, with a full-fledged business following in 2015. Since then, I have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of business owners, corporate executives, non-profits, teams and emerging leaders. CoachCruiting is the sweet spot between my two passions: coaching and empowering fellow leaders.”
