She is a role model first, coaching herself daily beyond her own growth edges as a leader. The outcome for you is a whole new level of impact as a transformational leader and collaborative innovator.

I met Margaret during the pandemic when all we could do was be on zoom calls. I was on so many that we formed a connection. Margaret inspired me when she told me that coaching needed more men as well as more minority coaches. This launched me on a trajectory of study leading to my participation in the Wellcoaches Professional Coaching Program . She also made me feel comfortable with the fact I failed the Board exam the first time. With her encouragement I have since passed both the ICF and Board exam. What I appreciate the most about her is her accessibility. Usually individuals with her schedule and stature are unapproachable. She is just the opposite. I consider Margaret a mentor and most importantly, a friend.
