I founded Gaining Insights, Inc. because I wanted to assist individuals and organizations during difficult transitions, and help them to make it to the other side toward reinvention, and real change. 


After leaving Lucasfilm Ltd. as a senior executive in 2002,  I set out to work with my clients in an impactful and genuine way. 


I hold extensive experience in leadership training, professional coaching, group and workshop facilitation, program development, as well as public speaking. 

I received certifications in Integral Coaching from the BloomWork organization, as well as from Hospice by the Bay, helping people find peace in the face of transition.

In 2018, under my pen name, Georgia James I wrote a women's fiction novel with my writing partner, Deborah Parrish, called Home Sweet Sonoma.
