Certified John Maxwell Coach, Trainer, Speaker
My name is Michelle DeStefano, and I am a Registered Nurse with over 30 plus years in progressive leadership roles. I am an executive, business development coach, and consultant with a positive track record in leading individuals and teams to actualize their true potential. Despite my many professional achievements and positive performance appraisals, and large annual bonuses for a job well done, I encountered career challenges and setbacks.
Specifically, I have been passed over for promotion even when promised organizational mobility; I have been in positions where I was devalued. I was even threatened about my longevity in a position despite excellent performance appraisals and annual bonuses showing I exceeded organizational performance: Totally blind-sided! Been there done that and…. I live to tell and stand the test of time.
You are a powerful woman wearing multiple hats (mother, daughter, wife, sister, soulmate, and professional). It’s a hectic world we live in, right? You thrive on making it all work, right?
Perhaps you have defined success as the number of initials after your name, the title/position you hold at work, degrees you have earned, and yes, all those awards framed in your office. Even with all the outward visible signs of success, you may still feel trapped in your career, not finding the satisfaction you should.
Have you been passed over for promotions by someone less skilled?
Have you been staying in organizations/departments that have not truly valued your expertise?
Have you ever been told in high-level executive positions that “We are now moving in a different direction” (AKA Gone Girl even though your performance appraisals were excellent and were rewarded with substantial bonuses a testimony to a job well done)?
Then you have come to the Right Place!
I am about to share with you how you can get from feeling crippled and stifled in your current career path due to lack of clarity, purpose, setbacks, and challenges to getting excited about waking up on Monday mornings with a clear sense of purpose and vision because you have found your calling and you are in charge of blazing your path and showing the world who you really are.
Working with Michelle has been life-changing. After taking a step back from my career to start a family, she helped me redefine myself as I begin to start my own healthcare consulting business. She guides our sessions in a productive and meaningful way. She listens without judgment, offering candid and meaningful feedback that has helped me focus my efforts as I start this new chapter. She has helped me identify my strengths and my passion, while inspiring and encouraging me along the way. All of this has given me the confidence to launch a business that I am passionate about, which is something I never thought I could do. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Michelle. She has honestly and truly helped me “soar”!

The Women in Transition webinar series was a perfect compliment to my individual coaching sessions with Michelle. The women in my group were all wonderful, and I never felt judged. The topics were on point and our discussions always led to even deeper conversation. I highly recommend.
I worked closely with Michelle for over two years ... She is laser-focused on getting results and meeting expectations, and consistently delivers relevant content and advice to help programs achieve their goals. She is a valued member of our team, and her contributions to our hospital partners has helped improve patient access, organizational alignment, and profitability. She is also a supportive teammate and fun to work with - I would welcome the opportunity to collaborate with Michelle in the future.
