Fresh, new and different.
Exciting and cutting-edge.
"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."

"When I work with clients this is what they have to have handled before they can get to the next level."
LPC, Psychotherapist and Leadership Coach
"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."
Founder | Acoustic Orange
I'm a leadership coach and strategist for many inspiring and aspiring individuals. I lead Tipping Point Strategists business consulting company. I'm an instructor at George Washington University School of Medicine department of Clinical Research and Leadership.
Along with experience and advanced degrees in business (MBA, Johns Hopkins), nutrition and physiology (MA, University of Maryland College Park), I’ve had leadership positions for private companies and the Department of Defense, and have been a serial entrepreneur and VC-funded start-up founder. I'm not an armchair theorist—I've been there.
I dare to do things differently—and succeed. I've succeeded at keeping my high standards, values, health, integrity, authenticity, empathy and kindness in departments and organizations I've led while at the same time created thriving businesses and teams. Now I help others do the same, and I can help you do it, too.
I’ve lived and worked internationally: Los Angeles, Seoul, South Korea; New York City; Washington, DC; Honolulu, Hawaii; and Silicon Valley. I can share from experience that businesses and leaders have the same challenges everywhere. You're not alone and you're not the first to have them. You can have a caring coach and smart strategist at your side during the difficult times so you can create the company and the life that fits your dreams. I will be that for you.
I work with clients around the world.
I've been working with clients and students online since 2011, in person before then, and I've been working with international communities since I started my career. I understand the subtle differences in cultures, people's needs and difficulties at work, and how we can work across all kinds of traditions, histories and boundaries with skill.
If you'd like to discuss how I can help your leadership, your teams, and your business to become healthier, more profitable more sustainable, and less stressful, connect with me here.

How I Work with Organizations
You need to be the best version of yourself to succeed in your leadership roles.
Through 20 years of experience in the fields of leadership and health, these are the three most important things I’ve learned:
Leaders excel at harnessing their own energy as well as the energy of others.
The best leaders aren’t born into the role, they’re made through purposeful learning and skills practice. They know how to create high-quality, motivated teams so everyone wins. I can help you with that.
You’ve got to listen to and respect yourself as well as others.
“We can’t serve from an empty vessel.” We can learn, and with practice become good at, giving ourselves what we need and giving others what they need. It's not a question of "either-or," both are absolutely necessary for long-term success. I've experienced it, and so have my clients.
Exceptional health is the only way to maintain the stamina necessary for leadership.
The right health habits will help you outperform your competition, and make you younger and stronger—from your skin to your brain, right down to your DNA. Read more details on that in my book: Eat to Lead.
