Welcome! How can I help you?

Hello! This is my first blog for my new business – Athena Coaching & Consulting. Welcome! I thought I would start out with a little introduction and a request for feedback.

First, a little about me. I am mom to two teenagers, Libby (16) and Callahan (15) and wife to one husband (Ben). Together we enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, traveling and playing games. Originally from Iowa, we have lived in Colorado for about 2 years. We’re still getting used to some of the crazy weather, but very much enjoying the low humidity and wonderful outdoor opportunities.

My career has involved over 30 years of nonprofit business leadership, business and wellness coaching, and community activism. An area that I excel in is connecting the business vision or mission with daily operations. So now I help leaders grow their business and find more time to focus on what’s important to them. I do this by helping them to calm the chaos by aligning every single person, process, and practice with the vision of their business or mission of their organization.

The challenges of leading a business can become overwhelming. Asking the question “are you running your business, or is your business running you” often resonates with leaders who feel like they don’t have the time to focus on the things that will grow the business or even enough time for their personal lives. By aligning all of the functions of the business in the same direction toward a common goal, leaders can make better decisions, delegate appropriately, and find the time they need to feel successful.

So that’s me, and why I have decided to start this business. Next I would like your feedback on what you would like to learn about. There are many things that go into aligning your vision with your operations. What are your most pressing questions? Some of the ideas I have for articles include:

  • accountability systems

  • strategic planning

  • work-life balance

  • organizational structure

  • culture

  • shiny bunnies

  • and much more

I’d love to hear your thoughts on what information would be helpful to you as you align your business with your vision. To share your ideas go to: and enter your questions in the “additional information” box. Let me know how I can help you to calm the chaos.
