Hi, I'm Jill. I'm passionate about helping you find the freedom to live a life you love! As a certified coach with the International Coach Federation (ICF), I help clients advance to greater levels in their career, relationships or life. I most often work with entrepreneurs, leaders or organizations who need to develop personal skills or strategy to lead teams, meet their goals and take their business or to the next level. I also work with people who want to discover their strengths and work on personal development.
I've also developed and trademarked Freedom Coaching®. My first book, The Freedom Coach Model®, contains over 20 self guided coaching tools and went to #1 on the Amazon bestseller list.

Grow with Strengths - Growing People Growing Companies As an HR professional of a rapidly growing company in 2010, I fell in love with the philosophy of Strengths. I decided to lead the efforts in building a Strengths-based organization and never looked back. I was surprised at some of the things I saw early on in the process. Very quickly, people built strong relationships at work where they gave each other the benefit of the doubt. Over time, they challenged and supported each other more. We wove Strengths into the onboarding, performance systems, and everyday conversations and meetings - people and teams grew stronger, listened more effectively, and asked for help more. We built a culture that was so strong and obvious, both internally and externally. It helped our recruiting and retention. Managers became Coaches for their teams and gave feedback in real time.
What I believe to be true: When we pause to give each other the benefit of the doubt, we open up the opportunity to connect, understand and find the true value in ourselves and others.
I take the time to get to know each individual on the team - and we all dive in together. My style is energetic and thoughtful. I believe that we learn through practice and we have a lot of fun while we’re learning. I’ve been fortunate to do work that I’ve really loved for over 30 years in HR, talent development, coaching, employee engagement, and wellness.
Here's what I do well - please let me know if I can help you and your business. 1. Develop managers into great coaches that win. 2. Build a nimble organization poised for growth and change. 3. Build the culture you want to get the results you want. 4. Keep the great talent that you worked so hard to acquire.
Here's what people are saying about working with me as a coach or facilitator:
Cindy and I worked together from 2013-2017. In that time she exposed me to the wonderful world of StrengthsFinders. It was part of our on-boarding to take the assessment and learn about our strengths. As I learned more about the strengths I have, Cindy was there to help guide me and my team through team building workshops to see how these strengths worked together across the team. Cindy is very knowledgeable in StrengthsFinders and the work we did in her workshop changed the course of our team dynamic for the better. We were able to communicate more kindly to one another and utilize our strengths appropriately in the tasks and projects we were assigned. Cindy's work is beneficial to any team whether they are in rough waters or not. They will come out better than before with Cindy leading the boat.

It's Monday morning and instead of being excited for the week, or even excited to get out of bed, you're wishing it was still the weekend. I too have struggled with this feeling but it doesn't have to be that way. I understand what it is like to be in a job you dread...I've been in that exact position! You may think..."the problem is my manager", but sometimes it can be the way we're approaching our job responsibilities.
Allow me to coach you through your CliftonStrengths assessment results and help create a path on how to achieve your goals, whether that is becoming more engaged in your current role or starting to look for positions that align better with your talents. As a coach with Developer in their Top 5, I can see the potential in others and get excited when they overcome challenges. I would love the opportunity to not only be your coach but also your cheerleader!
I have coached and mentored individuals and teams for over 25 years. I'm passionate about helping individuals develop their personal goals and working together to develop strategies for you to achieve those goals. With over 25 years of management experience I strive to help individuals become trusted and empowered leaders of others. Being a manager or team leader makes such a dramatic impact on individual contributors. You have the power to make people's jobs enjoyable or miserable. I love to work with new and seasoned managers helping them to develop positive and successful teams. I offer multiple workshops from Leadership Development to Sales Development all based on Clifton Strengths. My workshops are customized for each organization based on their employee development needs. As a Certified Project Management Professional, I work with project managers to develop and strengthen their teams using Clifton Strengths. Successful projects are based on strong teams and Clifton Strengths is a perfect foundation for new and existing teams to appreciate team members individual strengths and to build and become successful teams. For individual coaching, we start with a 50 minute complementary introduction session after you have completed the Clifton Strengths assessment. We talk about ways we can work together to help you understand and develop your unique talents. For individuals trying to find the right career or individuals who are transitioning from a career to a purposeful retirement, I can help using Clifton Strengths to discover your next direction in life. I offer special programs for non-profit organizations providing workshops for your staff, volunteer board or key volunteers. I offer in person and virtual coaching programs and workshops.

My wife Madlin is my Gallup Certified Strengths coaching partner, so you can get access to 2 hearts and minds for the price of 1!
As a Soar Global Strengths Evangelist I help fellow coaches scale their practice with tools and community.
You desire a career that energizes you. You want to do your best every day and be challenged by the work you do. You are either a top performer looking to up your game or someone who isn’t sure what path to take. You may be a manager of top-performing team or one that hasn’t quite gelled. No matter where you fall, I can help you explore what sets you or your team apart.
I am an innovative career coach who can help you discover what makes you different from everyone else. I help you understand what skills you have so you can excel in your current career or confidently make decisions about what your career path should be. I help you understand what skills you (or your team) have so you can excel in your current career or confidently make decisions about what your career path should be.
Together, we focus on what you are doing right, instead of what you are doing wrong. I give you the tools to figure out your natural abilities and recognize when you are using them. I show you how to describe your talents to those you work with and how to consistently apply them toward a goal.
I know what it’s like to be amazing at your job and still feel like you’re not doing the work you love. For more than 20 years, I worked for a high-tech company managing people, projects, websites and events. I built my career year-by-year, taking on new challenges, learning new skills and continually asking my boss what’s next?
Then, a few years ago, during a team building event I was introduced to the Gallup Strengths Methodology. And I discovered my superpowers.
After being certified, I began to mentor those who worked for me in a new way. I probed about what they liked to do - about what sets them on fire. I assigned them to projects that would highlight their strengths and encouraged them to tackle day-to-day assignments in a style that fit them, not the structure that had been developed.
I watched them soar. I watched them move through confusion about what they’d been told they do well to enlightenment about what they innately knew how to do. I saw them grow confident in applying their strengths and realize their own career paths.
Soon, I began to mentor family and friends in the same way. Again, and again, I saw people move from confusion to understanding. I saw light bulb after light bulb turn on. I saw sparks of happiness and energy where before there was complacency. And I loved it!
At the end of 2016, I left my corporate position to start my own career coaching business. I get to use my superpowers of relationship building, influencing and strategic thinking to show people that finding a career they love is possible.
I am so inspired to work with people every day who just want to be better. They want to take their career to the next level or have clarity around decisions regarding their career. I give them the tools I was given, guide them to their a-ha moment and then watch them soar.

In 2010, I attended a workshop on the Gallup Campus as part of the Special Olympics National Youth Activation Summit. Having taken the CliftonStrengths assessment prior to attending, I was already amazed at how accurate it was and how well it described me. During the workshop I had the opportunity to understand even more about the assessment, about the potential impact, and how it could be used for individuals as well as teams.
Being so impressed by my experience there, I purchased a dozen StrengthsFinder 2.0 books and passed them out to my team at Special Olympics North Carolina. All of my staff and interns took the assessment and we started our journey into being a strengths-based team. We began to work together more effectively and not just meet but surpass goals year after year. After seeing the success with my team, the rest of the Special Olympics North Carolina staff took the assessment as well as the statewide Youth Council.
In 2013 I was one of the first 100 students in Gallup's Accelerated Strengths Coaching class and earned my certification as a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach. I've had the pleasure of working with clients of all ages - teens to adults - and all professions - from front line and technical staff to executive teams and boards. In 2018, I was also trained in Employee Engagement using the Q12 assessment and process as well as the Builder Profile 10 for Entrepreneurs.
Moving to Colorado in 2016 I started Pikes Peak Coaching & Consulting to spread the benefits of strengths based teams and coaching to the Pikes Peak Region, Colorado and the rest of the mountain states.

As your coach my desire is to consider ways to build you up in your strengths to the good work you are called to do throughout your community. As Donald Clifton once said, when you discover your talents you begin to discover your calling. When you invest in those talents to become strengths, and begin using those strengths, you fulfill your calling.
My story is unique, involving seminary, international missions, new church plants, with a great mix of the corporate world. As I discovered my own talents through Gallup’s Clifton Strengths, I realized I was empowered to succeed in a variety of work environments. In other words, my calling (from a great Greek word, "kaleo") had to do with the positive application of my strengths instead of a job title.
I am passionate about coaching people to understand how the calling in your life begins with what is right about you; i.e., your natural talents. I have coached both teens and adults in one on one coaching sessions, or in group workshops. Regardless, my strategy begins by interpreting your Clifton Strengths results, diving into coaching sessions to understand how your talents have been influencing your patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving, then carving a plan to aim those talents at your goals for providing a good work in your community. My clients include high school students, church staffs, and chiropractic teams.
