Headshot Monica Dashwood.jpg

I founded Gaining Insights, Inc. because I wanted to assist individuals and organizations make conscious transitions, grow, reinvent and affect 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 during difficult times. 


I hold extensive experience in leadership training, professional coaching, group facilitation, conflict resolution, 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. 

I look forward to working with you.
