Over the last 17 years, I've become a trusted confidant and coach to executives, founders and board leaders.
My clients are leading high-stakes work in places like The Pentagon, VISA and in the Tesla board room.
My journey to success has been unconventional.
Along the way I've been a cofounder in Silicon Valley, built and scaled several businesses and served on UN initiatives. My work has been featured expert in several top books on management and I've been a guest lecturer at dozens of universities and MBA programs including Stanford University, Harvard and ESADE in Barcelona.
I spent time (and learned how to knit) with women imprisoned in Peru, prepared dinner aside Kofi Anan in Switzerland, and lived internationally in LatAm and EMEA for 7 years.
My career and my coaching approach crosses sectors, cultures and global markets.
I cannot thank her enough for the gifts that she brings to every interaction!”

“Why would I need a coach? I’m seen as a leader in my industry and I’ve already made it.
I’ve always been a top performer and I’ve had many great success. After a conversation with Vanessa, I decided to give it a go. What’s happened during our time together has completely changed how I think of myself as a leader.”

“I’m so glad I started this journey with Vanessa when I did, but I have to admit,
I wonder what my life would have been if I did this for myself 15 years ago.”
