ABOUT ME

I have worked in the media for 20 years, in film, television and digital media. I’ve held titles and roles including creative producer, executive producer, manager, leader and more recently as business owner, consultant, mentor and coach. I’ve focused on the big picture strategy and also been responsible for juggling and delivering on the tactical details. I consider myself equally good at both. I’ve been through ups and downs, won awards, lost my job and started new businesses.

 

It’s hard to remember when I wasn't coaching, energized by people’s talents and encouraging exploration and possibility. I trained and became certified through the internationally renowned Coach Training Institute (CTI) where I learned the skills and models to support my natural curiosity and drive for transformation. I am a Master Certified Coach (MCC) of the International Coaching Federation (ICF), and a Certified Neurotransformational Coach (CNTC).

 

When I’m not partnering with my creative clients as as a mentor coach I can be found working with executives on their business presence (http://www.businesspresence.net/), serving on the board of directors at the non-profit BAYCAT, or tending to my garden.

 
 

Testimonials

Marianne's like GPS. She doesn't tell you where you need to go, she helps you find the best way for you to reach your destination.Leslie Leite, Writer & Social Media Strategist

Marianne helped me articulate who I am and what I do today, allowing me to leave behind 20-years-old nomenclature and labels. Her expert process is human and straightforward. She challenged my thinking at the right times, and guided me to where I knew I should be. - Renee Crawshaw, Business Narratives & Content Design

Working with Marianne is the best investment I've ever made. I had built a successful and well respected business on my own, but was struggling to take it to the "next level". Within a few sessions, I was already making positive changes to my business strategy which I had been struggling with for years. With Marianne's help, I've finally gotten to where I've always wanted to be as a business owner, and this is just the beginning. My only regret is that I didn't find her sooner!

- Julian Goldklang, Mid Century Møbler

Marianne's guidance has helped me open doors and put my focus where it needs to be. I'm spending more time 'in flow', and when I'm in this place things happen! - Michelle Aranda, Creative Director
