She has a strong desire to help people arrive at the place they define as success in both personal and professional life. Her goal is to invest the experience and talents she has gathered through years of learning, oftentimes the hard way, into people whom she hopes will become greater than she can ever dream to be.
She has a deep background in organizational management with a proven track record of people development. In 2011, when she discovered Agile, the mindset behind the values and principles so deeply resonated with her that her entire career path shifted. She first served as a Scrum Master and became so passionate about helping people learn and grow as Agile practitioners that she was compelled to start training and coaching.
Cherie has since worked as a consultant, assisting several Fortune 500 clients with large Agile transformations. She trains agilists and maintains several mentoring relationships with Scrum Masters and coaches who are passionate about continuous growth. Contributions to the Agile community at large include presenting regularly at conferences and blogging about Agile coaching topics.

When not coaching Agile organizations, Cherie can be found working as an executive coach with The Coaching Fellowship, a nonprofit organization that works with rising young female leaders all over the world at crucial points in their careers to help them manifest the change they want to be, and see, in the world.
Cherie's life mission that drives every interaction with every individual she encounters is simply this: to leave you better than I found you with each encounter.

When an Agile coach leaves an organization, the changes developed during their tenure should not roll backward. Compliance is somewhat easy to install and takes hold rather quickly. The challenge with that approach is that when the forcing mechanism (Agile coach) is removed, much of the compliance rolls back to the original position. Sustainable change requires a different strategy. This book introduces the concept of utilizing an Invitational Approach to Enterprise Agile Coaching which can be a crucial catalyst for integrating sustainable change by putting the client in the seat of responsibility.
