Be that Leader you aspire to be, secure that Role you want, start that Adventure you dreamed of....
...and Live a Life You Love
At Saorsa, we truly understand You and Your business needs, providing the personalized coaching & leadership programs You require to achieve success.
For 20+ yrs, I've led, managed, mentored & coached many individuals and teams - Having held positions of Vice President, Managing Director, Senior Director, Director, working in the global marketplace, my philosophies are grounded in authenticity, emotional intelligence and integrity. For 10yrs, I worked my way up the career ladder, alongside my clinical colleagues, caring for patients in both public and private healthcare sectors, followed by 15 yrs in Clinical Research Organizations, Medical Device manufacturer and most recently, an Academic Research Organization within Duke School of Medicine's, Duke Clinical Research Institute.
I've had the privilege of shaping phenomenally talented individuals and teams to realize their best and most motivated selves. From politics, to power-plays, backstabbing and burnout.....I've seen and lived it all, and come out the other side stronger, wiser and more dedicated to helping others.
When considering a coach for Yourself or Your Organization, practical experience and skill-set in leadership...I've been there, done that and got the T-shirt, multiple times!
Saorsa - Scottish gaelic meaning Freedom, in recognition of my beautiful birthplace, Scotland.
Freedom is one of my core values

Healthcare/Research Professionals Coaching
Investment in healthcare professional wellness has never been more important. Burnout rates for medical and research staff are on the rise—at a time when we most need strong, resilient, motivated leaders and staff.
Drawing on more than two decades in healthcare management, Saorsa is uniquely qualified to address the distinctive challenges facing healthcare professionals. I’ve been there—in senior leadership positions in clinical, business and academic environments. So I understand and empathize with the stress,expectations and balancing act between career and family.
Over my long career in this field, I have developed an ability to create connections and followership, to motivate and empower both individuals and teams. To encourage people to stretch themselves and achieve well beyond what they thought possible.
I would like to share that experience with you—to help you and the people with whom you work, create a culture of confidence, pride and self-worth that is sorely lacking in today’s high-stress healthcare environment.
Saorsa is committed to developing leadership that is authentic, agile, and accountable. Today’s changing organizational culture demands that leaders be adaptable, flexible and nimble. At the same time, they must have the ability to inspire and engage with a wide range of personalities, capabilities and challenges.
Saorsa Leadership Development focuses on key areas such as:
• Emotional, social and cultural intelligence
• Being a woman in leadership
• Motivation and engagement
• Leading with vision and purpose
• Building effective teams
• Mentoring and developing internal talent
• Succession planning
• Creating a leadership practices inventory
Catalyzing Extraordinary Change
With many years experience in participating on and building, developing and leading both operational and executive teams, Saorsa is ideally suited to provide your organization with the unique coaching process, that is Team Coaching.
Unlike individual coaching where there is only one key relationship to manage - that of the coach and the client, in team coaching, there are 3 key relationships to manage - Individuals, Team, Organization.
It is critical that a team coach has a wide range of skills and perspectives, is of high emotional intelligence and is confident in working within complex organizational and team dynamics.

With Saorsa Life Coaching, you have the time and space to put your normal routine on hold. To tune out the buzz of your world and explore the questions that matter—really matter:
• What makes me happy?
• What am I really good at?
• What is calling me?
• Where is my heart pulling me?
• Who am I—really?
• What choices do I have?
• What inspires me?
These are important questions if you want to live a life of fulfillment, joy and contentment. At Saorsa, you can break away from the roles you play every day—employee, parent, colleague, friend, volunteer, homeowner, caregiver—and invest time and energy in yourself. Your inspiration. Your dreams. The life you want to live.
It is possible. You can change. You can love your world. At Saorsa, you’ll find the support and encouragement to make it happen.
