About Cocoon


True leadership comes in every size and shape and color. It looks like courage, and it makes those who are led feel brave.

Cocoon is here to help you take the seat you long for at the table of your dreams—or to create the table you imagine.

She's designed language for all sorts of experiences, from a self-driving car interface to enterprise software. Her education at Harvard College, Harvard Divinity School, and the Coaches Training Institute informs her practice.

Client Stories

"Kelsey is an amazing coach. She is very grounded and has a lot of wisdom.  I've been feeling stuck and lost lately. I didn't know where I wanted to go or what to do for a long time, but her coaching has gently moved me forward toward my dreams once again! Her approach is unique and loving. She's intuitive and able to cut through the crap and hone in to the deeply buried, yet most important stuff. I'm trained as a coach myself and have also worked as a client with many others — I'd say she's one of the best! Highly recommended! — Mari S. 

"Coaching gave me permission to do the things I wanted to do - to realize that I often got caught up in doing things because I felt like I should, and to unpack how in the past, the things I did out of interest or desire were always more important than the things I did because other people thought they were important.”

"Kelsey broke me open in a way that I would not have been able to do on my own. I love her presence, techniques, guidance and clarity. Thank you for helping me deeply shift. I feel like I'm ready to step into my new reality, the one I've longed for for so very long.... THANK YOU Kelsey. You truly have a gift." — Lara S.

“I started off my coaching journey with Lisa as a frustrated data scientist. With Lisa's coaching, I've been able to redefine my job into something that suits me better. Now, I would define my job as 50% agile coaching, 50% data science - something I never would have thought was possible a year ago!” — Alicia Hickey
