Rosalie is a Leadership and Executive Coach
Born and raised in Georgia, my journey began amid strict rules and traditional gender roles. With courage, time and spiritual growth, I challenged those restrictions. After attending Georgia Southern University, working as a legal administrator, paralegal and manager along the way, I landed in a large Atlanta law firm, eventually joining the executive staff, and becoming the first Diversity & Inclusion Manager. I was honored to receive Diversity Leadership Award from Alston & Bird, in 2009. My intense passion for inclusiveness and to help individuals and organizations reach their greatest potential fuels my work.
From 1994 to 1996, amidst motherhood, in a foreshadowing of my own speaking career, I started a children’s theater company, producing 14 plays, complete with script-writing, acting-coaching and coordination.
In 2009, I became a Cornell University ILR Certified Diversity Professional Advanced Practitioner (CCDP/AP) from Cornell’s Institute for Labor & Relations, the first of its kind in the country. Then in 2001, blending a fierce instinct for personal empowerment with my passion for empowering others, I began coaching and in 2010, upon moving to Denver, CO, I began consulting and speaking. I now bring 37 years of corporate and law firm experience as well as leadership development, team-building and talent management to the table and the literal stage, helping professionals and organizations understand that fear is the only thing between you and success–and the choice is yours.
I have been published numerous times; am a Professional Certified Coach; have multiple certifications in assessment tools and have served on various board across the country. Very close to my heart is the Colorado Women’s Bar Association and Top Lawyer Coaches, where I’m committed to empowering female thought leaders and strengthening the inclusivity of the legal industry. In 2016, I published my book, Conscious Leadership in the Workplace, and in 2017, I spoke at TEDxCrestmoor Park Women (now TEDxcherrycreek), and I was invited to join the Forbes Coaches Council.
I’m endlessly curious about the intersection of cognitive behavior and neuroscience as it relates to a human being’s path to success. I believe that meditation is the best way to start the day and have been practicing since 2007. Family, close friends, skiing, cycling and red wine are a few of my favorite things.
