Create alignment,
and
soar.

 

Guiding time and purpose-driven individuals and teams to deeply-rooted alignment that creates growth and forever-felt ripple effects.

 

STRATEGY. LEADERSHIP. LIFE.

Alignment is key.

One of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves and those around us, is alignment that creates the success we want, while actually enjoying the journey.

 

It happens when an individual, business, or team is clear on their purpose, vision and values and they are living them out day-to-day.  When we feel aligned, we feel a sense of flow and expansiveness — it is a sense of rightness with our world like we are right where we are meant to be and doing the things that make the greatest impact for our growth.

 

It feels like effectiveness.  Alignment makes success and advancing visible, the journey clear, and the experience a lot more life-giving and fun for everyone.

Hi, I’m Dina.

I am an independent coach, consultant and ethnographer by training – strategic thinker, adept connector, with an insatiable curiosity and commitment to learn.

 

I have 16 years of experience spanning consulting, market and behavioral research, facilitation, coaching, brand and innovation work with a variety of clients from one-on-one, small teams and businesses, to Fortune 500 companies like Procter & Gamble, Gap Inc, & Kraft.

 

My coaching approach is integrative and combines behavioral and org science with innovation, branding, and holistic practices.  As a former senior-level Account Director, mama to three, and wife, I understand the juggling and challenges one can face in creating positive momentum within their own team, with their clients, and their own lives.  Today, along with my husband, I own and operate two small businesses.  I hold a Master’s in Organizational Diagnosis & Intervention and behavioral study, am a Certified Five Capitals Business & Leadership Coach, and a Certified Integrative Health and Nutrition Coach.

What I Offer

What They Say

“I had tried so many things, this was different!  I had been struggling with anxiety, overwhelm, inability to stick with things and reach the goals I wanted, professionally and personally. The personal touch and the holistic care and energy have been more beneficial than I can express. You [Dina] are able to gently challenge typical thinking patterns and link them to my goals in a way that enables change. The work we do has enabled me to move forward in a fresh and fabulous way! You [Dina] have given me the fluidity when I have needed it to break from expectations so that I can continue to learn via that fluidity versus feeling like a failure.  Dina has a personal and professional style that immediately put me at ease and opened the door for exploration. Her all-of-you approach has been more beneficial to me than anything I’ve tried in the past. Forever grateful.” 

– Cheryl, Senior Manager, P&G

 

“Dina is an excellent innovation consultant with rich expertise in human insight development and then activating that work into brand and innovation ideas. She has both a strong strategic understanding of how consumer brands work and a deep curiosity for the consumers her brand partners serve. Armed with unique insight tools, personal creativity and a bias to action, Dina would be a great choice to design and lead insight and innovation work for brands who want to discover and act on new tensions and emotional insights. I recommend her without hesitation.”

– Michael Kuremsky, Brand Strategy Consultant & Professor, Former VP Global Brand Leader Skincare/Olay

 

“I invested in hiring Dina as a coach after having my first child and navigating the waters of life both personally and professionally.  I was feeling frazzled, and less confident and I was preparing to return to work full-time.  After receiving coaching and guidance from Dina, I became more grounded, confident, and able to navigate life and all its many facets.  Her approach is comprehensive, realistic and applicable.  She provided a safe space for growth to happen, taught me resources, ideas and practices to make my own and helped me integrate them into life.  Her concepts and teachings around living in alignment to your vision and values have been especially helpful for both myself and my family.  If you’re overwhelmed, facing new challenges, decisions, or emotions – and the weight of all those things, Dina is an incredible guide.  She provides options to work with her and get help that makes sense for you.  I wouldn’t hesitate to reach out to Dina again to work through questions/needs as they arise and receive coaching towards continued growth and alignment.”  –

– Austin Perry, Associate Director, Lab Partnerships

 

“Coaching with Dina was an amazing experience for me! The groundwork put into the program that Dina runs is one that has you evaluate your lifestyle and put thoughtfulness into practice. Putting into words a family’s vision and habits that can be formed to live truer to them was crucial during a vulnerable time like experiencing motherhood for the first time. The program was incredible to say the least. It was my first time working within a group coaching program, that aspect was helpful to feel connected and supported through difficult weeks. Or to be able to offer encouraging words while they are having a tougher week, enables the womanhood community one is promised as they become a mom.  Dina’s coaching is supportive, strategic, mindful & essential. I highly recommend it!!”  

– Alexandra Crumb, Associate Merchandising Manager

 

“I can say without a doubt I grew more in my six months working with Dina than any other time [at company]. She has a talent for seeing her team’s capabilities, challenging them to be better and caring for them along the way. She took my personal development seriously and taught me how to work collaboratively as a team player rather than a solo-preneur. This ultimately grew me as a person, she takes this time with each individual and that is why her teams are great.”

–Lyden Foust, CEO Spatial.ai

 

“I joined Dina’s program 11 months after having my triplets. I was feeling overwhelmed and both mentally and physically exhausted.  She is an amazing coach and her program has been the best thing I have done since becoming a mom. It’s been so good not only for me, but also for my family.  It’s been over two years since coaching with her and my family and I continuously refer back to what I learned and the tools received while working with Dina.”
