About Graziella

Hi! I'm Graziella, an executive and leadership development coach. I empower leaders to uncover unconscious patterns in their beliefs, behaviors and language to increase their impact by establishing new ways of being that bring self-awareness, emotional intelligence, confidence and better relationships.

My Story

I have spent over 15 years working as a corporate alumni leader in three top global law firms. During that time, I coached associates and alumni around professional development and career transition, developed multi-year alumni strategies, identified and executed alumni focused activities that supported business development and recruiting objectives. I also helped design and launch an award-winning internal Coaching Office while serving as a Coaching Office Steering Committee member, mentor and coach.

Prior to that, I spent a few years working at the United Nations, at not-for-profits, UN agencies and the UN Secretariat.

I hold an M.A. in International Peace and Conflict Resolution from American University’s School of International Service, a B.A. in International Relations from Tufts University and a certificate in Women’s Entrepreneurship from Cornell University. I completed my coaching certification at the Institute for Professional Excellence in coaching (iPEC) and currently hold an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential from the International Coaching Federation (ICF).

I was born in Brazil and raised in NYC, having also lived in Boston and Washington, DC. This international upbringing has given me a great appreciation for exploring different countries and cultures any chance I get. I love music (especially live!), from classic rock and 90s pop to opera and classical and am always up for going to show or concert.

I look forward to meeting you and learning more about you, where you want to go and how we'll get there together!
