I'm Dav


Who I am

I am an apprentice of the land, mother, intuitive leader, & community builder; all seeds planted by my Boricua, Mujer, and Queer ancestors. These seedlings, along with my career experiences as a Dialogue Facilitator, Educator, Executive Director, Mentor and Supervisor in the field of higher education, have prepared me to serve as a guide to those seeking human-centered individual & systemic change.

My Approach to Coaching

As a Coach, I work with you to strengthen your leadership efficacy & capacity, by helping you gain insight into your values, exploring ways to ground you in your values & sense of purpose, and by strengthening your commitment to your goals and intentions. My strengths as a Coach are curiosity, inquiry, relatability, and strategy. I am not fixing you, nor am I telling you what to do. My role is to build your ability to lead, direct, and honor your intuition & values.

My Approach to Consulting

Like ecosystems in the natural world, organizations are diverse, have the ability to adapt, repair, and evolve. My time with a client begins by conducting an ecological analysis to observe how your organization is being tended to and how it is operating. Through this, we determine what aspects of your organization’s functioning could benefit from expansion or redesign. I will support you through capacity building activities such as conflict navigation, strategic planning, & retreat facilitation. In my experience as an executive leader, these practices foster a more sustainable and healthy work environment. We will continue to collaborate using mission-focused goal setting and ongoing assessment on our progress.
