Featured recommendation:


“I would highly recommend Maria’s class to all professionals, not just those who are currently seeking employment. I always knew that LinkedIn is a vastly underused tool, but I had never thought about how powerful it could be before I took her class, and now I feel very empowered in my job search. The checklist and takeaways that Maria provided make so much sense, but I would have never thought of them on my own. It’s clear with her years of experience she’s really gotten to the meat of the best things we can do to help ourselves and use LinkedIn to its full potential.”- Amelia Colvig, Communications Specialist

The participants of meetings I facilitate say (source: comments on Facilitator Evaluation forms):

  • “I think this was probably the best retrospective I’ve attended… ever.”
  • “Maria was awesome and a pleasure to work with. I appreciated her objectivity and the opportunity for the program team to talk about difficult topics as a group.”
  • “Maria was well prepared, e.g. the “Agile Toolbox” and she used many effective learning techniques to keep us engaged from the start.”
  • “I thoroughly enjoyed the open dialog. I felt Maria did an excellent job of keeping the pace of the meeting and addressing important topics.”

My executive and business coaching clients say:


“What can I say! In just one hour and via Skype I had a brilliant coaching session with Maria. She got me right back into the driving seat for LinkedIn with suggestions and ideas specifically targeted to my business needs. I’m now driving LinkedIn myself – in top gear but driving safely. I know I will reap the benefits of this coaching session many times over. Thank you Maria, you are a gem.” – Rhonda Tranks, Certified Professional Facilitator


“Maria is highly committed, charismatic and exceptionally sharp. Best of all, she is very kind and brings out the best in everyone. I had the pleasure of getting coached be Maria, both professional coaching and coaching in Agile methodology. Her capacity to provide advice and be a sounding board for my specific circumstances was exceptional. It is a pleasure to recommend her in the highest of terms.” – Anjon Roy, Product Manager


“Maria is an extraordinary Coach who has the ability to clearly see the value in a person and then encourage and gently advise them on how to showcase their talents. As a result of her encouragement and advice, I started writing articles again based on my experience and knowledge. To my surprise, the articles were not only well received but have gone a long way in making me stand out from my peers in the eyes of recruiters and potential employers and most recently catapulted my career to the next level. She is one of the most insightful individuals I know and I am so lucky to have her as colleague and friend.” – Jim Sywilok, Agile Transformation Coach
