First Edition Coaching

Prepare for Greatness.

Welcome to First Edition Coaching. As the founder of First Edition it is my mission to provide a coaching experience that is forged in authenticity and trust.

Greatness starts with a goal or a purpose that connects your vision to your voice. When vision and voice are aligned your message resonates with others, opportunities are created and personal success and fulfillment follows. As your professional coach I will honor your voice. I will highlight and call upon your strengths. I will encourage your creativity. …and I will hold you accountable. Are you ready for greatness?

Let’s start today!


Coaching a state of mind.

Greatness is a mind set. It is a habit that is developed through consistency. It requires a sharp focus on what is true rather than on what is feared. Coaching helps you confront doubt through raising awareness, practicing positive self talk, embracing imperfection and accepting your humanity. It opens the mind and allows what is possible to emerge. We don’t stop there however. We step in to this place of possibility and we articulate your goals, we identify your values and we define your life purpose.

Only you know your truth. As your coach, I will support you, help give voice to your truth, set a direction and together we will prepare you for greatness.

There is nothing to find. Create it.

Do you have an interest or a longing to do more? Are you wanting to contribute in a different and more impactful way? Are you seeking change in your life, your job, your health, or in your relationships? Perhaps you have an idea or a feeling that simply will not be quieted. Together we will honor your vision so that you can express, design and manifest it. As your professional coach I will serve as a guide, asking powerful questions to help you shape your life.

“Life is not about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” – James Bernard Shaw

Individual Coaching

Invite Greatness. Align with your authentic self.

The pandemic forever changed human behavior, most notably it challenged our ability to create honest and authentic connections by keeping us apart. It’s time to reconnect. Understanding what is truly important to you as a human, a leader, a parent or a partner has never been more valuable. Identifying what is true for you and what your authentic self wants to do and say is the key to recreating connections and relationships that thrive. As your coach I will help you align before you take action.

Let’s prepare for greatness!
