Whether you’re an entrepreneur, manager of a team, crave a more satisfying career, need to boost your productivity, or want to become a dynamic public speaker, I offer something to support you in achieving your goals.

“Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, set goals and charge after them in an unstoppable manner.” ~ Les Brown

Productivity Consulting

Creating order and balance in today’s fast-paced, over-stuffed society is an ongoing challenge for many people and organizations. Improving productivity can decrease stress, help you find what you need faster, and save time!

As a Certified Professional Organizer, I’ve helped hundreds of corporations, small businesses, entrepreneurs, nonprofit organizations, and individuals garner measurable increases in productivity and gain time to participate more fully in business, career, and life.

Career & Professional Development Coaching

“The journey between who you once were, and who you are now becoming, is where the dance of life really takes place.”
~ Barbara De Angelis

Reinventing yourself in the workplace and in your career is possible. I will show you how to play to your strengths, discover your passions, and own your power and confidence as you plan your next career move.

I have years of experience coaching individuals on career issues, both from my background as an employment lawyer and as a career coach. I’ve had the pleasure of assisting individuals with varied careers, including lawyers, rabbis, professors, higher education administrators, authors, musicians, CEOs, entrepreneurs, and financial services professionals to name a few.

Executive CoACHING

Coaching reaches into corporations and organizations, not just the lives of individuals.

Coaching is a performance improvement tool that can powerfully advance the careers and results of people at all levels of an organization. I help my clients set and reach higher goals, ask more of them than they would have done on their own, and focus them to produce results more quickly.

Coaching uses a process of probing questions to unearth the client’s level of awareness, and provides the client with structure, support, and feedback. The accountability aspect of coaching is powerful, as the coach assists the client with implementing new skills, changes and goals to make sure they really happen.

Executives, managers, supervisors and team leaders often find that they must lead their staff and projects with little or no preparation or support. Coaching is a tool for business success…one that is critical for powerful leadership. Increasingly in the workforce, employers hire coaches for their employees as a form of positive assistance and non-monetary compensation.

These employers recognize the benefit: your productivity increases, and your increased accountability contributes to the overall organization.

Business Coaching

“When setting out on a journey, do not seek advice from someone who has never left home.” ~ Rumi

Drawing upon my background as an attorney, mediator, and trainer of entrepreneurs, I offer business coaching and consulting services to entrepreneurs and small business owners. Serving as a business strategist, I assist clients in making informed business decisions. Think of me as a combination of Chief Operations Officer, Executive Director, and Vice President of Marketing all-in-one!

Through a combination of analysis and intense discussion with you, I’ll explore every aspect of your business. We will create your business from scratch, or if it already exists, we will dissect it and then put it back together again. Your business will be better, stronger and a more authentic version of you.

Public Speaking 

“When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe one of two things will happen: There will be something solid for you to stand upon, or you will be taught how to fly.” ~ Patrick Overton

Want to become a speaker or hone your speaking skills?

Have to give a presentation and need help writing and organizing it, or coaching on how to present it?

I offer speaker coaching and training, as well as speech writing services.


“And one day the girl with the books became the woman writing them.”

Writing can sometimes feel like a very solitary endeavor. As a coach and consultant for writers, I will be your partner along your writer’s journey. Think of me as a writing confidante, business strategist, branding expert, and cheerleader all rolled into one.

After working together, my clients report having increased motivation, clear direction, and feeling like they got their writer mojo back!
