SETH Q.

Founder of Waterhouse

"Mandy coached me for a 3 month period during a very high pressure time in my life, and the results were fantastic. Her grounded presence combined with compassionate leadership style allowed me to trust her and really change.  I grew tremendously from the experience of working with her and attribute much of the success of my largest production events with the coaching she gave me. Having Mandy as a coach is like having a rockstar friend, who deeply listens and supports and elevates you to achieve more. "

Product Lead at Tap

“Mandy inspired me and in times where I doubted myself and wondered if I should just “tough it out” I was guided to what really served my life and career. I left a company where I was under valued and burning out. I got a new job that I am extremely excited about and used some of the techniques Mandy taught me to set myself up for success.”


N.D.

Director at Airbnb

"Great facilitator and support for team leaders! Mandy helped our creative team to plan a wonderful offsite, with a focus on our team-building portion. She invested time to get to know our team and generated a custom schedule for our goals. The experiences she recommended were fun and unique; the opening exercises she facilitated set a great stage for our work. Mandy brings a great balance of planning and creativity. We can't wait to work with her again!"

ANNIE E.

Cofounder at Spaulding Marine Store

“Coaching with Mandy has made me feel so empowered towards creating an intentional and amazing life. She has a thoughtful, thorough, and individualized approach to setting and achieving goals, and after every session with her I feel motivated and tapped into my inner purpose! I started working with Mandy during a transitional period in my career and life filled with much uncertainty and she has helped me craft a plan and find resources for the next steps. Between private sessions together and Mandy's incredible group workshops, it has been such a great process. She is remarkably gifted at helping others change their own lives!”


EMILY K.

Director of Funding at Law Finance Group

“Mandy has a very logical, level-headed approach to helping you become the happiest person you know, to not only achieve your life and relationship goals, but to help you analyze and define what they are in the first place.

She is positively brilliant, and incredibly knowledgeable; I appreciate how she incorporates the teachings of various renowned professionals, adding in her own layer of insight. And I truly value how her coaching is one that provides you with the life tools to address your challenges (whether they be more so practical or emotional) not only now, but more importantly, in the future. Mandy has helped me on every level of my life, and I too can restate other reviews that she has truly changed my life.”

ROSLYN C.

UX Designer

“Coaching with Mandy has been amazing and I would highly recommend her, especially to other women. I was connected to Mandy by a mutual friend, and from our first call I really resonated with her as she had previously gone through some of the challenges I was experiencing now (working a stressful job, trying to figure out career and balance), and come out the other side with a newer positive outlook on life. Mandy has been an absolute advocate for me, and that in itself has been invaluable. She is a wealth of knowledge of different techniques and strategies. Overall she has helped me understand what I want, and create focused strategies in order to achieve that. All the while she has been mindful that I'm easily overwhelmed if I have to change too much too quickly. I've seen incredible progress since working with her, and our coaching sessions have brought me accountability, knowledge, positivity and hope. Thank you Mandy!”

LESLIE F.

CEO & Founder of Venom

“Mandy's sense of drive and focus will be apparent the moment you meet her. As a person, she is warm, patient, and an excellent listener, but all of these natural gifts are amplified even more when she is given a professional platform for performance coaching (be it for an audience of 1 or 100). She has a keen sense of how to mold and customize learning materials and curriculum to her unique array of clientele. Mandy is organized, but flexible with her content and allocated session time - this ability to adapt to the needs of individual clients is also what makes her so efficient. And while she is probably capable of improving the performance of any subset of living things, from a school of fish to a Fortune 500 company, she has a special knack for coaching WOMEN! Companies looking to support their female employee base (or female founders/CEO's themselves) should look no further.”

“Mandy is a wonderful coach. She is adept in many areas (love, money, fitness & nutrition...) and shares her expertise in a way that is both instructional and gentle. She also is great at providing concrete steps and methodology to help you create positive change while also getting to the psychological or emotional root of the problem. She has been a spectacular support for me, helping me achieve a spectrum of personal goals throughout our time together. I highly recommend Mandy as a coach!”

Speaking Coach

“Mandy is such a unique source of deep wisdom! She has a unique skill in creating specialty events and in making everyone feel welcomed and comfortable. I particularly benefitted from Mandy's "procrastination workshop" and am in awe how much Mandy herself gets done in a short amount of time. 
Mandy also helped me with an addiction issue I have (chocolate!) and coached me through reducing that addiction. She is the best! I highly recommend you work with Mandy.”

KATYA P.

Lead Engineer

“I met Mandy at a conference, as we talked, I was so impressed by her extensive coaching knowledge and her clear passion for what she does. I love so many things about Mandy. She is a pro--helping you get from where you are currently to where you want to go. She is an excellent communicator and listens carefully to what you are saying (and not saying). She shares best practices and insights in a way that creates change. She is also a resource library, always sending articles, social events, tools and books.
She has changed my life completely and even helped me to recover after my divorce. Thanks to Mandy's coaching I have become more direct, more confident, more focused, and more successful, in all areas of my life. I feel like a brand new woman! 
You really should work with Mandy.”


CHRISTIAN

CEO of Cyber Security Company

“Mandy really helped get me organized. She also focused on my physical health which I needed at the time. We built systems to decrease my overwhelm, built new strategies for sleep and she lead some workouts for me. I now am more clear and focused then I have been in a long time.” (*prefers to not share a photo)

“I turned to Mandy after seeing great reviews on Yelp, with the goal of finding an external person who would help me create a feeling of accountability with all of my 2019 New Year’s resolutions and dreams. And to say without exaggeration, Mandy is amazing! I hadn’t had experience with coaching before but the way things turned out to be with Mandy are beyond any of my expectations. Although she has a gentle and supportive style, she really takes my goals and dreams seriously and doesn’t let me just easily skip regular tasks that I intended to do (exercise, daily meditation practice, academic writing, book writing, etc.)… And that’s what I asked for :) I’m also amazed by how flexible she is and how she adapts to the client’s style and needs. Mandy truly listens and never tries to push her agenda (maybe it was something I was a little worried about when considering coaching) — instead, she assists me with MY agenda. This experience definitely goes on my list of “my best investments” :)

Branko Glad

President & CEO Telegra, Inc.

“While extensively searching for a Career Coach, I've learned there are two types of coaches: the ones focusing on psychological well being (and building one's self esteem to move forward), and the ones with hands-on approach, focusing on nailing a job (search, resume, interview, utilizing connections, etc.). Mandy turned out to be the right mix of BOTH! 
Mandy is energetic, hands-on, down to earth, make-it-happen go-getter. She eases you into, and guides you through, the entire process. She is extremely easy to talk to, and she finds the right answers for everything. She is also a well of all kind of useful information and connections! If you want to get things done (nail that job), I highly recommend Mandy.”

“I first met Mandy while helping put on a wellness gathering. Mandy was incredible in the way she handled all of the stress and fire-alarms that go off while hosting such a large-scale event. She was the epitome of cool, calm, and collected. She has a way of making everyone feel welcomed and can meet people where they are at in their journey. 

Through Mandy's women's coaching group, Stara Society, I have overcome many personal and professional barriers. Mandy has facilitated each meeting thoughtfully and provides a ton of resources for us to work on and achieve our goals each month. Her vision and execution for the group is in perfect alignment with what women are seeking in today's society. 

Mandy lead a self-care coaching session at a women's health conference I hosted and her session was one of the best ones of the day. Mandy shows up as her brightest self and that light touches people. 

Mandy is a visionary, leader, and passionate about her clients, friends, and the collective at large. I cannot recommend Mandy enough as a coach, speaker, facilitator, and organizer.“

“From the first time I met Mandy I felt like I could allow myself to be completely honest with her. It is not easy for me to be vulnerable to anyone, so that was very important for me. One reason why I chose to go the route of a life coach is that I honestly wanted what she had. She has a bright disposition, confidence, she's mindful and caring...just wonderful character. Mandy is extremely present, which I think is rare in the era of iPhones. I on the other hand was having a very difficult time slowing down, either feeling frantically busy, totally anxious about my future, or slipping into unhealthy reflection of my past. Mandy gave me real tools to work through and deal with my challenges.

I truly feel like a fully engaged person after just more than a year of working with her. I am feeling healthy mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually for the first time in my life. My relationships have never been better and I feel totally great about my career. I cannot thank, or recommend Mandy enough. It has been one of the best decisions in my life.”

“Mandy has a special blend of qualities and skills that make her both lovely to be around and incredibly effective. Well versed in positive psychology, NLP, human design, increased productivity, and organizational tools, she's introduced a few aha moments, that will change my forward perspective.

Imagine the no nonsense friend who loves to include you in her beautiful world but also has the insights and tools to help you grow. Sometimes stoic and evaluative, other times warm and nurturing, she has a balanced feminine / masculine energy that I presume works well with both male and female clients.

I've participated in Mandy's Goddess circle for over a year meeting wonderful friends and gaining some new tools. She's a force to be remembered and we're lucky she's chosen to use her gifts for good.

Mandy likes to be effective and gets her clients to their goal as quickly as possible. She's a good investment for acute professional and growth goals.”

Mandy is a powerful, resourceful and effective coach. I'm always impressed by the variety of methods and tools she brings to career and relationship work. Every time I work with her, I feel like I have an energetic giant helper join me in my work with 100% dedication, skillful questions and deep methods for healing and transformation. Highly recommended!
