Speaker & Coach

Let's work together !

I help busy professionals achieve resilience and creativity

The modern workplace is increasingly stressful. The good news is that the more resilient you are, the better you are able to cope with stresses and  engage in high levels of emotional regulation, self-compassion, and cognitive agility. Resilience is a skill and, like any skill, it can be learned and improved upon with practice.

Let me be your listening partner for transfomational change.

Coaching busy professionals to thrive at work and life:  

  • individual coaching for thriving during change
  • align values with intention and actions
  • enhanced accountability and commitment

Here’s what my coaching clients are saying:

Marga was great at listening and exploring what is most important. I processed my thoughts and ideas which helped me clarify and take positive action. All around great experience and really made a difference in my work and life. Truly enjoyed my coaching with Marga.

Great listener! Marga guided me through great insights about myself and I found a shift in my thinking, which was valuable and transformational for me.

Marga and I did a practice session where she observed me presenting. I was surprised that Marga didn't provide "critique" as I have been so used to with other presentation coaches. She really used the coaching process to help me improve in a way that built confidence. There was no "you should do x" in the conversation. Rather, she had me try out different techniques and I was able to come to my own conclusions based on “doing” and what felt like a good fit for me.


I teach. You relax. It’s awesome.

My presentations empower busy people to:

Align with intention and create space for new insights
Create a mindset of possibility
Cultivate your ability to enjoy a calm and focused presence

I help individuals cultivate calm from the inside out. I draw from many fields to create a  fun experiential program based on research that changes lives. Hire me to be part of your company's next retreat or management training.

My clients include: The Crutchfield Corporation, Brookings Institute, University of Virginia, Federal Executive Institute, Martin Horn, Doody Calls, Darden School of Business,  and Henrico Doctors Hospital.
