​IGNITE

YOU

You are driven and you've always worked hard for your many accomplishments in both your personal and professional life.

You're at a place in your career that LOOKS great to those around you, and it's where you've always wanted to be yet despite all that, something doesn't FEEL right - it's like there's something missing you can't quite pin​.

Weekends are a double-edged sword because as they come to an end, you notice a pit in your stomach and a feeling of dread at the idea of another week "playing the game".

You don't know how much longer you can play the game, and you're secretly afraid of what it would mean to give up everything you've worked for.

​ME

Most people know me as a former Director of Recruiting for N. America at an $18B corporation. In a company of 17,000 employees, we were hiring 2,500 people a year.

I’ve been a high-performer my whole life, and I’ve always aimed two levels higher than everyone thought I should be able to play. ​

The dark secret I carry is that as a child, I always wanted to get it right. So, part of my success is driven by a deep fear that I won’t get it right. 

I’m known for incredible compassion, and I see the spark inside of people and draw out something really magical from them.

I’ve learned that when you define how success feels and own your power from a place of wholeness, your outer world and each relationship in it is transformed. 

I surround myself by and learn from some of the best coaches on the planet. I've invested in coaching for myself and have been "doing the work" since 2014. I am a member of 4PC, Rich Litvin's private community of extraordinary coaches.

If you are a leader who wants to reimagine what's possible for your life because you feel trapped on the hamster wheel of your success, then you and I should have a conversation.

If you’re someone who’s always shot for two levels above where everyone else says you should play, then you and I should have a conversation.

If you're someone who is ambitious and  knows in your heart there has to be a better way to go about being in the world, one where your inner experience is as fulfilling as your outer world, then you and I should have a conversation because when people spend time with me, they make the impossible possible and their lives change forever.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY ABOUT WORKING WITH ME

Jahi

Director at College Track

Luisa facilitated a thought-provoking seminar on “How Metrics and Measurements Change HR’s Relationship with the Business.”  I was so intrigued by her outlook and approach to business that I pursued her expertise as a mentor, and then later as a coach.

It was immediately apparent that Luisa exemplified the passion, intention, intuition and skill for coaching that I needed in order to turn an important page in my professional career.   Luisa challenged me to believe in myself, dream big and do something about it.

Because of our work together I am more equipped to achieve my potential with joy and courage... especially in the face of adversity.  I sing Luisa’s praise from the highest of mountaintops! 

Hong

Lead Educational Counselor

In a few short months of working with Luisa, I have seen myself change from an unsure individual to someone who is fully confident in who she is.


I am currently in a transition phase in my life and Luisa has helped and challenged me to create the life I envision, and deserve for myself. She has helped shift my mentality from "starting over" to "evolving".


She operates with incredible thoughtfulness, is an intelligent thought partner, and has a zest like no other! I am so grateful for Luisa and even more grateful that she is able to share her talents with others. I highly recommend working with her!

Kevin

Director, Strategic Alliances at GuidePoint Security

I worked for a company for several decades and I knew I needed to make a change.  I needed help defining my true passion and motivation, and applying that to my job search.  


Through some intense coaching sessions and being pushed to believe beyond my current limitations, I was able to create a blueprint of what I wanted in my next opportunity, and for my life.


While it was uncomfortable at times to be pushed to create my life a year from the day we spoke and all that I would achieve, once I embraced the work and had a clearer picture of who I was, that created the energetic space for an opportunity with an amazing company!

Abby

Clerk of Court

I started working with Luisa after many failed starts and stops on my own journey to find a new career. I quickly realized that my journey with Luisa was going to both bring me more personal growth than I had experienced in the last several years, while also opening my eyes to what a journey in seeking a new career path would look like.


To grow confident and stronger in the direction of your dreams and to be at peace when you get there, you must first start with the foundation or all the work you do will be built on something that could crack or break at any moment. Luisa was the key in rebuilding my foundation; in helping me discover what drives me, my strengths and weaknesses. My work with Luisa was emotional, draining, frustrating, invigorating, exciting and the best gift I have given myself in a very long time.


If you are seeking a genuine journey and to be a better version of yourself, this is where you start.  I am very grateful for my time with Luisa and look forward to all the ways our paths will cross again in the future.
