She supports emerging and senior leaders find their voice, navigate power dynamics, and share their gifts. She also empowers organizations to create inclusive, engaged and results oriented cultures by training internal managers as coaches.
Rebecca got her first taste at building consensus and diversity training in the late 80s as summer camp counselor at the social and environmental justice summer camp, Hidden Villa. Her work continues to draw on the passion for change she felt come alive in herself there as a youth. Today – Rebecca brings deep experience working across diverse cultures, class, educational levels, and professional rank. Her clients span the Global Health Fellows Program of USAID to grassroots community based organizations in Oakland.
In addition to her serving as a trainer with Compasspoint, Rebecca also teaches at Leadership that Works, an accredited coach training program, where she offers coach training and mentoring in Spanish and English.
Rebecca actively engages in her own personal and professional development, one of the results - embracing her inner artist and yearning to write. She authors a blog called “Transitions” and was recently was published in the Stanford Social Innovation Review.
