Consultant, Coach, Writer, Horsewoman
Virginia’s background as a therapist, college professor, and writer, as well as her work with ex-racehorses and certification as a Equine-Assisted practitioner have given her a deep understanding of how humans interact with each other and their environment. She understands that effective interaction is based on clients’ self-efficacy and ability to show up authentically.
This resulted in her coaching, consulting, and speaking engagement work.
Her primary focus today is using a combination of somatic and traditional coaching to help leaders, especially women, connect with their authentic selves and develop their ability to lead from that place.
And, incidentally, she loves to take pictures!
