Coach, Writer and all around Pragmatic Dreamer

Jean is an innovative, forward-thinking, driven coach and consultant. She is passionate about bringing her clients practical solutions, while still keeping an eye on their big-picture goals. She aims to create a safe space for clients to get curious, get clarity and feel empowered.

Jean is experienced in coaching a variety of individuals in jobs that range from entrepreneur creatives to corporate executives, and with professionals, from recent graduates to experienced PhDs.  She is well-versed in working with expatriates, immigrants and first-generation Americans, women, “minority” populations (as a fellow Latina) and those looking to transition to new industries.

Jean earned her coaching certification from Coaches Training Institute, considered by most to be the gold standard in coaching. She works with clients and companies, helping them to meet goals, by building on her 11+ years of human resources experience in companies of all sizes- both in the public and private sector- with her innate creativity and bias for results.

Jean has lived and worked in South America, Europe, Africa and the U.S. and can coach in English and Spanish.

Jean earned a masters degree in human resources and labor relations from the top-rated program at Michigan State University. She graduated with honors from Florida International University, where she earned a bachelors degree in Psychology.

Jean enjoys reading nonfiction, all things music (especially rock) and learning new things. Her greatest joy is spending time with her small group of family and friends, including her labradoodle, Cooper.
