What Clients Have Said


"Fresh, new and different.

Exciting and cutting-edge."


About Me

I'm a leadership coach and trainer with years of experience in leadership, and scientific training in physiology and nutrition. I'm an authorspeaker, partner at Tipping Point Strategists, and professor at the George Washington University School of Medicine department of Clinical Research and Leadership.

I'm not an armchair theorist—I've been in leadership roles around the world. I’ve held leadership positions for private companies and the Department of Defense, and have been a serial entrepreneur and VC-funded start-up founder.

I like to do things differently from the norm—and succeed.  I can help you do it, too.

Along with experience and advanced degrees in business (MBA, Johns Hopkins), I have a science background and education in nutrition and physiology (BA, MA, University of Maryland College Park),

I’ve lived and worked internationally: Los Angeles, Seoul, South Korea; New York City; Washington, DC; Honolulu, Hawaii; and Silicon Valley. You don't have to do it alone. You can have a experienced and caring coach at your side (and peers to provide additional support and mentorship) during the difficult times so you can create the career and life of your dreams. 


"After working with Luci, I eat better, I sleep better, I make better decisions, I make more money, I'm on top of my game, and I'm a better leader overall. I've tripled my income from last year, and it's only April."

I work with clients around the world.

I've been working with clients and students online since 2011, and in person before then. I've worked with international communities since I started my career. I understand the subtle differences in cultures and generations; and within those categories everyone is different. Your differences don't have to be difficulties, in fact you can make them one of your strengths. 

If you'd like to discuss how I can help you with your leadership, create the change you want to see in the world, inspire your teams to greatness and lead a career and a life you love, connect with me here.

I will help you to:


Optimize your energy and the energy of others.

The best leaders create their own success through learning and skills practice. They motivate and inspire themselves and others on a regular basis. You can too.


Always serve from a full cup. 

You can get what you need while giving others what they need to succeed. It's not a question of "either-or," both are absolutely necessary for success as a leader. 


Create exceptional stamina.

The right personal habits will make you younger and stronger—from your skin to your brain, right down to your DNA. This gives you an incredible edge. Read more details about it in my book: Eat to Lead

Having known Luci for 3 years has been a real joy.

In one of our once-per-week goal setting meetings she got me thinking and using my brain in a different way.

The next thing I did was make a phone call that changed my life. And I was 59 at the time.

As a freelance artist, I now travel with an entertainment company for 6 months. I live life for these exciting moments. I get work opportunities that the average person would miss out on, and they lead me to uniquely beneficial financial situations.

"Luci delivered more than expected, and my expectations were high. When we met for our first session, she engaged quickly and parsed through lots of new and disorganized information to identify and hone in on a critical thread to make quick progress and impact— she cut through a LOT of noise to make our time together beneficial to me; that was impressive."
