Meet Nicole Provonchee
Founder, Executive Coach, Speaker, Working Mother

She helps already successful leaders and high-potential professionals seize opportunities, overcome obstacles and achieve impactful, impressive results. ​

As a former female executive, Nicole can relate to the unique situations women sometimes face as leaders and the challenge of finding just the right balance of work, family, friends and the rest of life.

She is a frequent speaker to groups on a variety of topics ranging from work/life balance to self advocacy to the management skills leaders need to succeed. Nicole combines a wealth of research, real-world experience, humor and pragmatism to ensure attendees leave with tangible information they can implement immediately (and have a bit of fun while learning).
