I’m an executive coach and accomplished business consultant who brings experience as a two-time start-up Chief Operating Officer, small business and entrepreneurial expert, and coach to my work. I support high-performance individuals and businesses to help them overcome the challenges that come with transitions or periods of feeling stuck to achieve growth and engagement with a more fulfilling future. I’ve been described as an emotionally intelligent leader and authentic, thoughtful motivator, she is passionate about helping others to ‘rise again’ in fierce pursuit of their goals.
During my time as COO, I worked with CEOs to develop and execute corporate strategies for each phase of growth from start-up to operational maturity. I developed and institutionalized all of the necessary tools and resources to foster scalability, quality delivery, and a thriving culture. Leading with a passion for employee engagement, I cultivated custom, employee-centric performance management systems.
Before serving in an executive capacity, I supported many high-profile government clients as a Big-5 management consultant. From business process improvement efforts to complete organizational redesigns, I facilitated the communications and analysis required for effective change management.
It’s nice to meet you.
I am a wife, mother, and daughter who is a master when it comes down to compartmentalization and chronic over-achievement. Life has taught me about being broken and the importance of dusting yourself off and rising out of the dark holes caused by stress, doubt, loss, and inadequacy when personal crises and transitions occur. I have learned that vulnerability and self-belief can be powerful tools in re-engaging with life and empowering a confident, motivated you to emerge.
“When considering Brandi’s coaching style, words like inspiring, empowering, and motivating come to mind. To be honest, though, these words have begun to lose their meaning from overuse and in contexts (like personal and business consulting) where they’re nothing more than the name of the game. What makes Brandi stand apart from—and above—the rest is unquestionably her spirited commitment to your goals/hopes/aspirations. It’s this intrinsic quality of hers that she brings to every task, every action plan, every relationship.”
"Brandi has not only helped me navigate the most challenging times of this firm’s evolution and growth but has done so with grace, professionalism, and selflessness."
“I could use an endless series of adjectives to describe Brandi as a business leader and coach, but here are a few: approachable, encouraging, empowering, honest and open, knowledgeable and confident.”
My services include one-on-one coaching, executive coaching, and business consulting.
