Leadership Coach. Strategic Consultant.

My Story


Co-Creative Professional Coach

I am an experienced, professionally certified leadership coach and a strategic consultant committed to helping leaders connect with the deep purpose of their work and lives. Working and living in our purpose creates passion, joy and innovation for the greater good in the world.


I am committed to working co-creatively with leaders who wish to play an active role as authors of their own narratives. Whether it's breaking new ground, moving in new directions or navigating transitions and shifts, you are the leading character in your story.


My coaching can equip you with the strategies and tools you need to be effective and successful in achieving your goals. 

My Background

As an award-winning communication strategist, former public relations and marketing executive and journalist, I understand the power of words and stories in shaping and changing perception and thus our reality.

As a spiritual director and teacher, I have a deep appreciation for the role of words and stories in influencing our health and well-being. Storytelling and writing opened the doors to my successful career in communications and my pathway to healing from
trauma and lass. To learn more about my spiritual journey, and storytelling ministry visit me at  DIVINEPORT. 

In addition to professional coach certification and leadership experience spanning 30 years across mass media, philanthropy and public policy, higher education, small business and faith-based initiatives, I am a graduate of the Yale Clergy Scholar Program. Also, a graduate of Hartford Seminary's Women's Leadership Institute and Program in Spirituality. I have a BSW (bachelor's in social work) from the University of Wisconsin. The foundation of my life and professional credentials was laid growing up in a close-knit, nomadic military family that lived in different regions of the United States and abroad.

I turned to Davenport Coaching Solutions for help with prioritizing and managing work and family demands. Janet demonstrated a keen ability to listen deeply and to pose thought-provoking questions. We worked together on a plan of action that continued to help me after our sessions ended.

Janet is authentic and passionate. She understands the corporate culture and the various dynamics and personalities that are common in most workplaces.  As a result, she brings an honest, holistic approach to her executive coaching style. She gives you the space to ask yourself those tough, courageous questions about who you are and what you are hoping for. She meets you where you are and guides you through any tough situation.  Janet has equipped me with the tools needed so that I can face challenges more confidently.
