Hi, I'm Raven.

I believe that people lead best when they do so from the core of who ​they are. Most clients arrive at my work with a deep sense of who ​they want to be, but they haven't had time and space to fulfill that ​vision. My approach facilitates the growth of self-awareness and ​encourages clients to take bold, courageous steps to foster diversity ​and inclusivity while building strong, effective teams.

Over the past 10 years, I have helped senior leaders and ​​entrepreneurs to develop leadership strategies that are both ​tailored ​to their unique strengths and responsive to the needs of ​an ever-​evolving, diverse workforce. Leadership coaching is an incredible gift ​to give oneself, and I am humbled to be a part of the journey.

Get ahead of the curve


Benefit from 15+ years' experience:

With deep experience in Operations, Human Resources, and Strategic Planning - my leadership journey has been a unique ​experience of leading from behind while forging a path ahead. I've consistently worked with organizations navigating moments of ​major change to decades-old systems. That path afforded me a unique experience in balancing power/authority in complex ​environments while honoring my people-focused values and beliefs.

Leading High Visibility, ​Cross Functional Teams

I've partnered with executives at ​Fortune 500 companies and ​managed key programs/partnerships ​in the dynamic Tech industry. I know ​what it takes to lead through ​uncertainty, juggle competing ​priorities and hit aggressive targets - ​even in the midst of chaos.

Navigating Complex HR+ ​DEI Conversations

I am well-versed in leadership strategies ​and understand the importance of ​recognizing and appreciating diversity in ​the workplace. As your coach, I will ​provide leadership guidance and crisis ​management to help you create a more ​effective workplace culture and ensure ​the longevity of your teams.

Leaders who work with me say...

I hired Raven to help me strategize on my budding ​nonprofit and get clearer direction about the program ​and execution of my work. She was so good, in fact, ​that months later I invited her to work directly with ​my nonprofit. Raven is an an imaginative leader ​whose expertise in strategic planning, goal setting, ​and practical execution was a key component of my ​organization's programmatic work.

- Nonprofit Founder, CEO

Raven got me through a pretty rough patch I was ​having with work and life. With her help, I was able to ​move through blocks I was encountering. The biggest sh​ift for me sounds so simple: she introduced me to, ​and got me actually USING some very helpful tools ​to keep me co​n​sistent.

"At first, I felt challenged by Raven's direct approach. ​Her questions made me think hard about what I'm ​willing to do to be the person I say I am. No one has ​ever done that for me before. It was amazing how she ​could see through my excuses and help me take risks at ​work that felt so challenging I had started to think they ​were impossible. This wasn't just about becoming a ​better leader - it's about becoming a better man."

- Nonprofit Executive Director

"Getting this unique insight from a Black woman has ​been invaluable in helping me understand how ​microaggressions have an impact. Now, I better ​understand now, how to treat my staff with respect, ​empathy and support. I've got more work to do, and ​I'm glad to have this support."

Frequently Asked Questions

Ho​w is Coaching different from Coaching?

Our most impactful client relationships have been with folks who are ​now, or have worked with a therapist. The main difference is that ​therapy tends to focus on past and deeply rooted causes of current ​behavior. Coaching focuses on your present reality, core values and ​beliefs to form solution-oriented plans of action. We may discuss ​emotions as a practice of embodiment, not to process deep woun​ds. We may explore the WHY behind your actions, but only long enough to ​discern​ the next effective step.

Wh​at results can I expect?

Your results rely entirely on the degree to which you engage and implement ​what you've learned. You may develop greater clarity on how to navi​gate difficult conversations, take an unbiased approach in decision mak​ing, and create a culture that encourages and supports growth. As​ you become more emotionally intelligent, your team will naturally follow s​uit, leading to greater team unity and collaboration. You'll also be be​tter equipped to handle conflicts, manage stress, and achieve the des​ired outcomes for both you and the organizat​ion.

Wh​at does this cost?

The Way Thru: Leadership Coaching is a premium service offered ​exclusively to senior leaders and those aspiring. As such, pricing starts ​at $400 per hour. Many clients seek support through their empl​oyer's pe​rsonal development stipends and discretionary funds.

What makes this service different than other executive coaches?

As a Black woman, I've successfully "managed up" for 20 years, in a ​wide variety of professional environments. After being told by Senior ​Leaders that our time together totally transformed their approach, I've ​decided to lend this skillset to others who truly want to learn what it ​takes to thrive as a leader in today's diverse workforce. Leaders trust ​the unique perspective and report feeling accurately seen and heard for ​the first time in their careers.

What does Emotional Intelligence have to do with Leadership?

Emotional intelligence is an essential component of effective leadership. ​Emotionally intelligent leaders are able to read the mood of their team ​and understand how to manage conflict, communicate effectively, and ​create an inclusive work environment. Emotional intelligence is key for ​successful leaders in today's workplace.

How can Executive Coaching help me?

Executive coaching will help you to become a stronger, more effective ​leader. You'll learn to communicate effectively with a diverse workforce, ​act in integrity with your most important values, and lead from a place of ​empathy and understanding. As those shifts happen for you, it'll also ​translate to business results for your firm. Turnover will decrease, ​productivity will increase, and team morale will improve.
