Hi, I’m Miriam

With 15 years in the Tech Industry, law degrees in 2 countries, a Masters in Communication and Neurolinguistics, I understand the Science of Leadership and how to crack the unique code of your success.

My Story

I have always been fascinated by how people behaved so differently from one another.

I’m an American citizen, born in Brazil in a Portuguese family (what? yeah, I know…) I somehow understood from a very young age that people had different personalities and if I wanted to be successful in my interactions with them I would have to adjust my communication to the different personality types in order to achieve my goals.

That innate skill turned into a passion and my life purpose.

I am a lawyer, mediator, linguist, writer, and certified NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), emotional intelligence and Enneagram practitioner and coach (what can I say? this girl loves to learn!) helping people be successful in their communication and interaction with others.

15 years of experience leading teams in the fast-paced tech industry have taught me that understanding, respect and flexibility (and great communication skills) are some of the essential skills necessary to be successful at work and life.

I help you understand how your unique communication style and thought patterns impact your life and your interaction with others. We can change the habits and mindset that no longer serve you so that you can communicate more confidently and effectively, move the conversation forward, become more influential and inspiring, and create a ripple effect to co-create change.

C-level executives, entrepreneurs, leaders, managers, educators, moms returning to the workforce have all benefitted from my unique guidance.


I combine neuroscience, communication skills, coaching principles and intuition to help my clients shift and reframe their mindset, handle difficult situations, improve their relationships and reach their goals.

Why Work With Me

We are all wired differently, your coaching should be as unique as you are

I am passionate about helping people feel confident and empowered in their abilities to lead and live life, and most importantly, to cultivate relationships that are meaningful.

If doing the same thing over and over is not getting you anywhere anymore, it’s time to change.

I help you understand how your unique communication style and thinking patterns impact your life and your interaction with others and change the habits and mindset that no longer serve you so that you can achieve your full potential, reach your goals and create change.
