About Me

I am an experienced executive coach and organizational behavior professional.

I specialize in individual and team performance improvement, executive presence, effective business communication, leadership development, emotional intelligence, and intercultural fluency.

After achieving a Master’s degree in Science of Communication for Business and Organizations from the University of Rome “La Sapienza,” I worked in the corporate world for more than 20 years as a management consultant. I supported several leaders at European and US-based companies, managing strategic initiatives for operational effectiveness and organizational changes.

I am an ICF-certified Executive Coach (EEC – Milan, Italy), Emotional Intelligence Leadership Coach and Assessor (Six Seconds North America), and Neuro-Linguistic Master Practitioner (NLP University – California, USA).

Since 2015 I have coached clients in various occupations and organizational levels, including high potential employees, entrepreneurs, and Executives. Through my coaching and training programs, I help them get clarity on who they are and what they want out of their life and career, enhance their abilities to connect, communicate and inspire others, discover and make the best use of their talents, and improve their wellbeing.

I am originally Italian, and I live in New York City. I am an art enthusiast, a cellist, and a lover of the sea.

About Cometa Coaching

Cometa Coaching provides executive coaching and leadership development services.
The word “meta” comes from a Greek prefix and preposition, which means “after” or “beyond.” When combined with other words in English, meta often signifies “change” or “alteration.” In Italian, meta also means “goal” or “destination.” So, the word “Co-meta” stands for my purpose to support driven professionals and dynamic organizations in their transformational journeys.

I always operate from a position of integrity and care about living my values, which are the backbone of my business:


I don’t have a one-size-fits-all coaching approach. I believe that everyone has a rich inner landscape that, when harnessed and surfaced, can change the world in remarkable ways.


My purpose is to cherish the beauty and uniqueness I find within myself and others. I am committed to pursuing it in any interaction with clients, business partners, and our communities.


My corporate background and multifaceted methodology combining Emotional Intelligence (EQ), Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), and the Ontological Coaching Model make me able to use various tools to deliver impactful transformations that create ripple effects of positive change.


I believe that true coaches, like true leaders, are generous by nature. For me, generosity means taking care of others in authentic ways and focusing on their needs and wellbeing.


Building trust is foundational to successful transformations because it helps me create deep and meaningful relationships with my clients and amplify the impact of our work together.


I don’t overpromise or lead people when I can’t help them. I care about providing honest feedback to make my clients see things differently and find clarity on their best next step.

Cultural Integration in the Workplace

I developed my career path between Italy and the US and familiarized myself with the differences between the two work cultures. I created an intercultural coaching approach to enhance the relationship and communication skills necessary for successful career growth in these Countries.
