An executive coach and people expert, Michelle inspires organizations and individuals to build real relationships and get real results. Having worked with organizations large and small, she’s identified the common struggle… it’s people challenges. When asked by her young son what she does, she simply replied, “I help people work better together.”

Michelle began her journey to training and speaking when she became disheartened by the lack of leadership and communication she experienced in corporate America. She is a recovering CPA who spent over a decade in finance with positions in audit, M&A, financial consulting, VC, and hedge fund investing.

Michelle’s shift began when she wanted to teach hedge fund advisers how to convince her to invest. Michelle realized she was a teacher at heart. It was this change that led her to found Executive Essentials a training company that provides customized communications and leadership programs for Fortune 500, non-profit, university and government clients all over the world.
