Leaders whose legacy is defined by their relationships, not their accolades
helping you better
serve clients & team
the CEOffice is a leadership and operations firm. Why combine leadership and operations versus focusing on one? Because together they help you better actualize the potential of your team. Leadership coaching supports your relationships. Operations coaching ensures you have the resources to make them successful.
the CEOffice was founded January 2015 in Chicago. Since then I worked with founders of accounting boutiques, floral design firms, indie media companies, interior design firms, marketing agencies, photographers, and more. My most successful partnerships are with leaders who have a heart for people. They commit to making time for relationships and strive for excellence in their work.
leadership & operations coach
I provide leadership and operations coaching for leaders of service-based small businesses with teams.
We meet weekly to identify ways to improve team performance and client interactions. My relationship-focused process requires your courage and consistency to build a company culture that empowers you, your team, and your clients. The courage to have difficult conversations and the consistency necessary for growth.
Why did I go into coaching? In 2014 while attending a conference, I had my AHA moment. A small business owner shared her struggle in finding and keeping talent. Sitting there in the 4th row, I knew I could help. This combination of hearing a need + my leadership experience + passion for helping others excel + knowing people would pay for help became the catalyst to start the CEOffice in 2015.
The disruption to the workforce since 2020 only added fuel to the fire. We need great leaders who care about their team and clients! If you want to better serve your team and clients, you’re in the right place. Let’s lead with excellence!
