Hi, I’m Tauna Batiste


I'm a CEO, executive coach, and former executive director. I spent years in the nonprofit sector spinning my wheels trying to connect my aspirations and skills with open positions. Until one day I completely recreated my approach and everything changed.

Within 2 years I went from a part-time coordinator to executive director!

I will teach you how to take your career off cruise control and move with intention. For nearly a decade I have continued to climb and now consult with organizations and individuals coast to coast.
