“I had the opportunity to be one of Jill’s first coaching clients as she was finishing up her Deep Coaching program. When she told me about the program, I was so intrigued that I asked her if she would coach me. We met virtually each week for 12 weeks.
We talked about what I would like to do if I could do anything and using the Enneagram, talked through strategies aligned with my world view. Jill has a way of listening intently, compassionately, and non judgmentally. She helped me to begin to get out of my head and to explore what was happening in my body and to learn to trust what it had to teach me.
The work that we began has opened a new world of possibilities for me and I’m hoping we can reconnect periodically to deepen the that learning as we both grow and develop. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with her. Based on my experience with her first as a manager at Chevron and then as a coach, I believe she has found her true calling with her Deep Coaching practice.” – Trina W. (Corporate)

She has advanced training and certifications in a wide range of specialized Org Development, HR and behavioral assessment processes and has worked with clients in varied industries, organizations and professional levels.
Jill’s expertise is in counseling psychology, deep coaching and organization design- which gives her a unique approach to the field of coaching and leadership development in any ‘system.’ She successfully tailors and customizes her approach based on the needs of the organization and the client. Her most recent customized work consisted of an org intervention, achieved through a number of cross-functional, geographically dispersed women’s circles. The focus throughout the circles was to create a safe space for women in tech to find their voice, be heard and tell their story through authentic connection. This work promoted a social system which uncovered nuanced patterns of behavior which remain invisible when viewed through traditional lenses. This forum gave women the language and opportunity to explore the impact of this behavior on their lives and in their career, while simultaneously creating a sharper focus on the corporate values and desire to build a learning culture.
Jill’s professional coaching experience ranges from large technical organizations to small start-up/growth companies to academia.
