What is Creative Coaching?

Head. Heart. Guts.

Your inner genius includes all three—are you tapping into them?

What’s the dream you’ve never said out loud? Where would you be without any limits? How would your career shift if you made a transition into a space that you truly loved? Do you feel ready for the next step, but aren’t sure what it looks like? Are you brave? Hungry for more? Are you called by possibility and adventure? If so, you might be ready for creative coaching.

We all have innate power and potential, but not everyone possesses the tools to unlock what’s already there. Together we’ll tap into that space, digging deep into your unique talents, and explore how to best utilize them in the workplace and at home. Unlocking your inner genius comes with creative power, mental fortitude, and a commitment to fearless living—together we’ll get there.



Creative Coaching

Coaching is the process of finding your inner genius through honest inquiry and exploration. It allows you understand and then step into what brings you alive, both personally and professionally. It leads you to discover and define your life’s purpose by tapping into your head, heart and gut in an authentic and meaningful way. Together we’ll unlock your greatest possibility and identify short and long-term goals to achieve your vision of a life that’s bold and fulfilled.



Live a fearless life and choose a path that leads to a meaning, purpose and dimension. Use your inner genius and innate gifts to achieve your wildest personal goals and professional dreams.  By truly checking in with yourself and envisioning your life as you want it to be—without barriers, restrictions or limitations—I provide the spark that helps you make big, bold transitions in your life.


Identify what you’re good at, what you like to do, what the world needs, and how to carve out a place for yourself that considers all three. Explore your leadership capabilities and understand what really drives you. We take a “whole leadership” approach that considers your cognitive abilities, your heart, and your gut instinct to enhance your effectiveness as a leader and your confidence so that you are showing up for yourself, and for others, and actively shaping a successful career that you love.

Working with Gina has been absolutely amazing and she was instrumental in helping me move through a difficult life transition by asking incisive questions and being a wonderfully objective support person.  She masterfully employs the skill of visualization to help create a description of the future that one can experience.  From career to relationships and wellness coaching she has been an invaluable resource.  She is professional, intelligent and warmly encouraging.  She is excellent at helping to define values and overcome obstacles, explore possibilities and challenging one to grow.

My Story

For a couple of decades I was living the dream in San Francisco. I worked as a marketing executive managing large teams and multi-million dollar budgets for global companies, most recently in the financial services technology industry. I was fulfilled for years, until one day I wasn’t. I became curious about the impact of my career. What legacy would I leave behind?

It was during a sabbatical in early 2013 that I had an epiphany. I realized that the most exciting and fulfilling part of my career was empowering people on my teams to thrive. I was passionate about their success and living balanced and fulfilled lives. This realization, and the process of unlocking my own inner genius, took me down an evolved and gratifying path as a Transformational Leadership Coach.

As a coach, I work with professionally-minded go-getters and soulful adventure seekers who desire a career and life that’s filled with meaning. They are executives, leaders, and curious humans looking for change in their lives. It is my life’s purpose to help them find it.

I am forever inspired by nature, fresh air, and the movement of water. Because of this, I balance time between Lake Tahoe and San Francisco, California. I practice yoga on the mat, surf the waves wherever I can find a good break, and ski winters in Tahoe. It is my greatest passion to help others transform their lives, just as I transformed mine.
