I am a trained coach through the Academy for Coaching Excellence and an elected town councilmember in Truckee, CA who supports change makers to contribute to their communities through electoral politics. I see that it takes an incredible amount of courage to become a candidate, and I believe everyone has that courage in them -- it's already present! I support people to demonstrate those qualities on the playing field of a campaign. There are a few core skills that we can all learn and improve -- skills of how to carry oneself in the inevitable moments of doubt and worry. Mastering those skills puts a candidate in the driver-seat of their own campaign, developing the leadership to grow through an election an on to being an effective public servant. I support people to be their best and most authentic selves through this effort.
