About

Dr. Pickering has helped many people towards their personalized deeper and higher summit – in their work, relationships, personal growth, leadership, effectiveness and performance. 

For many, this is akin to offloading unnecessary items in your pack -items that could be useful to someone else or may have been useful to you on a particular trail section but are no longer helpful or needed for this stage of your climb.

She has been coaching and leading in some capacity for most of her adult life. She has seen and experienced firsthand how a workplace fosters or fails, the toll of burnout, how physical well-being yields confidence, and how leaders grow or repel committed followers.

Her careers in education and the fitness industry complement her whole-person approach to helping others discover and move forward on their journeys to better health and well-being.

Dr. Pickering has coached men and women to complete their first triathlon, physicians to beat burnout, and ministry leaders to navigate their own stress and that of their team.

She has coached and counseled general laborers, at-home moms and dads, physicians, parents, pastors, teachers, lawyers, accountants, nurses, college students, managers, soldiers, artists, and athletes.

She has worked with individuals and teams in schools, hospitals, community mental health centers, small businesses, not-for-profits, and veterans’ hospitals. She has consulted for executive leadership, HR, and mid-management of for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. 

Living and working in West Africa for several years gave her vital global perspective and ingrained the necessity of context. She brings important cross-cultural perspective, appreciation and understanding to her work. 

Along the way, she’s completed an Ironman triathlon, traveled to 18 countries, and perfected a melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate cake recipe. She enjoys running, hiking, baking, hymn sings, the farm life and good coffee.

Her expertise in motivation, emotional agility, healthy thinking, growth and development, resilience, leadership and individual and organizational well-being combined with personal and professional experience across industries, continents and populations yields unmatched credibility. The bottom line is this: 

“I am well-equipped and find it extremely fulfilling to trek with those who realize that going higher means going deeper…”
