Regional General Manager
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Cindy for a few years. During that time, she demonstrated an unparalleled level of authentic care for the employees. Not only does she strive to continually advance her knowledge and skill set as a mentor, coach, and HR professional, but she also takes a deep interest in helping others advance their careers as well.
On a more personal level, Cindy coached me in both the strategic and tactical aspects of leading a team. Her perspective has helped me create and lead a highly collaborative and successful team. I highly recommend Cindy as an HR professional and personal coach.

Cindy's passion for people and improving our soft skills are critical and translate to any industry. Her approach and demeanor are perfect.
I have known Cindy since ~2014, when Cindy in an HR role was voluntarily and frequently sending mine supervision helpful leadership tips, which added to the bottom line. Recently, I have sent Cindy two "mentees", even though the coaching is confidential, the feedback from the mentees is always positive!
When I first started working with Cindy, I wanted to improve my
communication skills with my employees and fine-tune my decision-making. Over the course of a few months, I started to see myself and my work environment differently and was able to identify methods to improve my performance.
I learned new ways to manage employees and to understand my reactions to circumstances. These are things that will stick with me forever.
Cindy was easy to work with and focused on my goals. I recommend coaching with Cindy and look forward to working with her again in the future.

As I aspire to become a global business leader post my education, I wanted someone with whom I can discuss in detail different people related circumstances I have faced in my 5-year career so far, how I managed them and what I could have done better.
Cindy has a sound understanding of different personality types and leadership principles and helped me explore my own.
Further, she has been able to guide me around how to leverage
my own style to gel with different personalities and leadership types.

be the best version of themselves.
Cindy coached me during a pivotal moment in my career. I was not confident with speaking up to my management team and needed to learn a way to do this and be “ok” with it.
