What Clients Say

“I would highly recommend Lynn”

“I chose Lynn based on her expertise in healthcare and her understanding of the unique challenges of academic medicine. Lynn has provided great advice and many resources for my personal and career development. I would highly recommend Lynn as a coach for any professional looking to grow in their profession.”
Eileen Bulger, MD, Professor of Surgery, Chief of Trauma,UW Medicine: Harborview Medical Center

“Direction Changing and Life-Changing”

“Lynn challenged me to find my “stride” as a leader in a new role with a steep learning curve during the first 6 months. Her coaching was insightful and brought new awareness about my strengths, gifts and challenges. It helped me get launched in the new role in a way that I could not have done otherwise. She is wise, patient, insightful and gracious. This truly was direction changing for me, and life-changing.”
M.K., Director, National Nonprofit Organization

“I Trust Her”

“I trust her… she’s creative. We partner. Lynn has taught me that the biggest thing I needed to do to improve my effectiveness was to take time for reflection and turn reflexive habits into intentional action. This has created a significant advantage for me in leading my organization, and also contributes to my resilience in a very demanding and constantly changing setting. Lynn challenged me to adopt changes that have fundamentally changed me.  This coaching has allowed me to keep front and center my reason for this work:  to focus on leaving a legacy.”
J.D., Vice President of Medical Affairs, Hospital and Healthcare System, WA


“Lynn has shown a great ability to establish a communication environment that allows me as a client to truly express what’s on my mind. She has supported me, to heighten my awareness on a variety of issues, and to develop a plan to put into action. Her flexibility and client focus are a trademark. This has had an impact on both my personal and professional life.”
Miguel Santillan, Supply Chain and Ops Director, Driscoll’s Strawberry Associates – Mexico Region


“A fellow colleague encouraged me to engage an executive coach and suggested Lynn. I had recently been appointed as an interim executive, and it was my first time leading in such a role. Over the course of six months, Lynn has helped me navigate the transition from manager to leader. Lynn has not only been a great sounding board, but has provided a wealth of ideas and approaches that I would not have come up with on my own. Lynn offers suggestions, not prescriptions or solutions, and really partners with her clients to help us develop as leaders.”
S.M. Director of Finance and Administration, Seattle

“I highly recommend”

“Lynn helped me navigate through an onslaught of personal and professional commitments – and a few ego hazards – so that I could focus more singularly and clearly on completing a book project.  Her practical tools and gentle style helped me recognize obstacles that were preventing me from moving forward, without a hint of judgement.  In addition to Lynn’s professional advice, I felt a personal commitment to me and the success of my project.  I highly recommend her style to help others get unstuck.”

Lonnie Lusardo, Principal Consultant, The Diversity Collaborative
