Hi, I’m Stefani.

Thanks for stopping by!

Here at Leading Higher, I partner with people who want to:

  • rise to their full potential,
  • elevate to excellence in their personal and professional lives, and
  • live and lead at the highest level.

I help leaders leverage their influence so they can have an increasingly greater impact on others.

I bring clarity, direction, and perspective. You get better at what you do.

I can provide the education and tools to help you thrive. Together, we fight overwhelm. I share all the best strategies in cognitive science, behavior modification, and positive psychology that you wouldn’t find on your own. By connecting with me, you come away with manageable and sustainable action plans for your personal and professional life. Specifically, my clients see significant and measurable increases in emotional intelligence, productivity, communication, relationships, executive presence, and personal well-being.

My Background

My unique background as an educator, consultant, and coach will help you turn your personal potential into peak performance. I have expertise in a variety of leadership models and assessment tools. My formal education is in the behavioral sciences, receiving my Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from Purdue University in 1996. I have been teaching graduate courses at West Chester University in Pennsylvania for 30 years.

I am an active leadership consultant who has engaged with over 100 clients from more than 30 companies, including Independence Blue Cross, State Farm Insurance, Lincoln Financial, CIGNA, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and Drexel University.

I specialize in positive leadership strategies, strengths-based leadership, and transformational leadership models. I am a certified executive coach, accredited by the International Coaching Federation. I am a member of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the Society for Industrial/Organizational Psychology (SIOP).

Let Your Life Speak

My husband and I attend a non-denominational church in Downingtown, PA. I serve as a faculty advisor to Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ) and support numerous other missions around the world. My husband and I have been married for more than 30 years. Outside of work, I can be found:

  • sitting on the beach waiting to see dolphins
  • attending a Phillies baseball game, even when they are losing, because the food is so good
  • pampering Piper (my chocolate-dapple miniature dachshund)
