"Theresa's influence presents itself daily. Her support through challenges always navigated to positive results. She is great at what she does. I have learned to separate emotion from fact, move from subjective to objective and realize that change is inevitable, you simply need a plan and a process. Executive coaching was a cathartic experience with many blue sky moments." —SVP Fortune 500 retail company
