About Gillian

My expertise in core energy coaching allows me to accelerate your transformation from overwhelm to focused, creative thinking - from merely surviving to thriving.  I accomplish this through a structured approach that first, takes you through an examination of your current state. Then, together, we design your plan for achieving your desired, future state. We organize your transformation so that you know you are working on the right thing at the right time in the most optimal sequence that assures success for you.

I have more than 20 years of human resources background in a variety of settings with the last 13 years working in not-for-profit healthcare. I am proud to have been associated with SCL Healthcare System (SCLHS - formerly Exempla Healthcare) based in Denver, Colorado and Seton Healthcare Family in Austin, Texas. In addition to a deep, practical knowledge of HR issues in healthcare, I have a Masters Degree in Human Resource Development Leadership from the University of Texas at Austin.

My coach training has been granted through one of the top accredited coaching programs in the country, Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). 

In addition to my certified professional coaching certification (CPC), I am also a certified HeartMath coach/mentor and certified HeartMath trainer.  I hold the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) designation awarded by the International Coaching Federation



My Burning Platform....You!

Why healthcare and why nursing leadership? I focus on nursing leadership because I know you are the key leverage point for improving the life of the nurse at the bedside. This ultimately benefits the patient. When your staff nurses are feeling empowered and supported, they provide the best possible care for the patient. And, they are more connected to their purpose. This improves employee engagement and retention.
