Shea integrates her training in somatic education and mindfulness practices with her passion for data and science into her coaching philosophy, bringing to her clients the tools and techniques from the latest research in neuroscience and the best of the wisdom traditions as it relates to sustainable leadership and team development. Always learning and refining, Shea has cultivated a holistic, interdisciplinary and customized approach to her practice to support clients create clarity, purpose and results.
Shea lives in the Greater Boston Area with her husband and two daughters, their dog and chickens. She is restored by nature, reading, meditation and her husband’s cooking, and finds her greatest joy in watching her children grow up.
