“I am at my happiest when I help people and teams break down the barriers holding them back from being effective communicators and work with them to realize their full potential and succeed.”
Marie-Claude is a certified executive coach and facilitator with decades of communications experience in healthcare, academia, consumer products, and luxury goods. She approaches communications coaching as an active listener who quickly makes the connections, and wastes no time getting results.
Marie-Claude’s approach to communications coaching focuses on helping leaders do more of what they do well as communicators. She applies the “80/20 rule” to take executives’ skills to the next level – identifying one or two improvements that will yield the biggest results. She works closely with clients to eliminate distractions and help them focus on their communications. Marie-Claude developed her unique approach to coaching from her expertise as an equine-assisted leadership trainer – where executives and their teams do team-building with horses. Native-born French, Marie-Claude conducts trainings in both English and French.
Prior to 3D, Marie-Claude spent 20 years as a communications executive at Nestle Foods, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Revlon. She has given thousands of media interviews and has appeared on several national news programs. She has coached Olympic medalists, a former United States President, and global thought leaders in medicine and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM.) Before that, she began her career as the account executive for Champagnes from France. Marie-Claude holds a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in Communications from the University of Paris. She is a certified executive coach through the Accredited Coaching Training Program (ACTP).
Marie-Claude and her husband live on their horse farm in New York, where they conduct experiential leadership programs with horses. She is the volunteer President of the Equine Experiential Education Association (E3A), and a long-time board member of the Harlem Valley Rail Trail Association (HVRTA). In her spare time, she loves to spend time on her tractor caring for the farm.
