I am continually delighted with the amazing people in our world. What beauty they create, their
capacity for love, their talents, generosity and kindness. I see how important we all are and believe
every person plays a significant role in the world and is here to make a contribution. The contribution they
are here to make, regardless of its nature or size, is essential to the well-being of our world.
"Maureen is a laser cloaked in a velvet glove. She combines keen
insight with an almost zen-like style that makes her a joy to
work with. Her knowledge of how people grow and develop is second
only to her sense of humor and warm personality."
.... Barbara Roche, Executive Director, Regional Education & Business Alliance, Boston, MA
My purpose is to help people remove obstacles to standing in the way of their ability to bring their unique contribution into the world. As a coach I’ve come to realize how people truly have the ability to
achieve what they want. I also see how often we are blind –sided by obstacles of all sorts.
Obstacles! To me they are simply waiting there ready to be revealed and eliminated.
I like to get to the heart of the matter as quickly as possible and
while doing so I believe I do use that "laser with a velvet glove"
method as described in the quote above by Client Barbara Roche.
I always do so with the utmost care and respect. I hold my clients
accountable on their commitments and do push when it's needed.
My intuition is pretty solid and I use it to move clients ahead so
they can reach their goals as soon as possible. I love to share the
happiness my clients feel when they get what they came for! That
happiness they feel is the best!

I began coaching in 1999. Prior to that I had a successful executive career
in Sales and Marketing in the Card Division at American Express based in
headquarters in New York City. I traveled extensively and during one business
trip to England met my future husband Daniel. He also worked for Amex based
in Paris where he was born. We married two years later and I left Manhattan
for Paris where I opened a gift shop specializing in gourmet gift baskets. We
moved to England several years later and there I created a Consulting and
Training business which I transformed to Coaching and Training when I
discovered the amazing results that arise from coaching.
My interests include travelling, my rose garden, fine dining, gourmet cooking,
entertaining, black-tie events, writing, decorating, design, opera, good movies
and reading a really good thriller.
My husband Daniel and I regularly participate in fund raising events for non-profit
organizations. I use my decorating and design skills for event decor and Daniel his
building skills. Daniel is my love and my heart and my best friend. I am grateful to
him every day for loving me and having him to love.
I have a BA in English from Long Island University, Brookville, NY and an M.Dip in
International Trade Law from the American University, Paris. I've lived and worked
in Europe and England and am originally from Garden City, New York and New York,
NY. We currently reside in Connecticut.
