"It is not the critic who counts; nor the one who points out how the strong person stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the person who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends themself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if they fail, at least fails while daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

~ Summary ~
The people in the arena are my tribe. My job is to help them succeed.
Throughout my career as a business owner, senior executive, ship captain, and Executive Coach, I've experienced first-hand the tremendous pressures, complex issues, and never-ending "growth opportunities" those in the arena face every day.
I know how valuable it is to have someone you can trust to help you, who knows what you're dealing with and going through, and who can support you to achieve your organizational and career goals and become the person you most want to be.
That's who I am and that's what I do.
~ Background ~
My career - and life - has always been about learning, changing, and growing.
After graduating from the State University of New York Maritime College with a bachelor's degree in computer science and a U.S. Merchant Marine license, I became a captain of oil field supply vessels in the Gulf of Mexico, and on a scientific research vessel in Montauk, New York. Following that, my career came ashore and I became a computer scientist developing advanced systems for the U.S. Naval Weapons Center and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory.
Upon receiving a master’s degree from George Washington University, I went into the private sector helping mid-sized businesses in a multitude of industries successfully thrive and grow by designing and developing highly-customized financial, information, and data management systems and processes.
I subsequently became an executive at a start-up government contracting firm where I grew the information systems division into a thriving organization of engineers, managers, and support staff.
From there I moved into management consulting with a highly respected consulting firm. This provided a tremendous opportunity to work with large, Fortune 500 companies to help executives and leaders at all levels manage, grow, and transform their complex operations and organizations.
I also created and managed several small businesses, including a music magazine that blossomed into a publishing company, events management business, and a non-profit community support organization, as well as several health and wellness-oriented businesses.
In 1999, having completed the business coaching program at Corporate Coach U, I founded NuView Coaching, LLC and became an executive coach and organizational improvement consultant.
Over the past 20+ years, I've coached, trained, and supported hundreds of executives, business owners, and leaders at all levels in the private, public, and non-profit sectors. I've worked closely with many of them for years helping them navigate the challenges and opportunities that arise throughout their lives and careers. I've supported their personal and professional growth and development helping them become masterful leaders - and great people - who create and lead world-class organizations.
To make all of that happen, I am always learning, changing, and growing.

~ Coaching Philosophy ~
"Mastery: Great skill and competence in a particular job or activity."
I believe there's a masterful version of ourselves waiting to be recognized and lived. Most people never get the support or opportunities to experience their full potential, yet, given the right opportunities and support, we can all transform from who and how we've been into a new version of ourselves who truly flourishes and thrives.
I also believe in having fun while learning, growing, and making things happen. Laughter and joy provide the attitude and energy needed to surmount huge challenges and sustain long-term effort, patience, and perseverence.
Working with a great Coach gives you an incredible opportunity to see who you really are, and the support to see what you're capable of. When you see yourself and everything in your life in entirely new ways, everything changes for the better.
That's the purpose of NuView Coaching: to help you see yourself, your work, and your life in new ways so you can confidently take the next steps along your career and life path towards being who you are today ... and have some fun along the way.
