Estrella is a personal and executive coach and emotional intelligence trainer who is committed to supporting leaders in reaching their highest potential, creating conditions for equity, dismantling oppressive systems, and leading with love.

She works with clients to actualize their power through transforming limiting beliefs, thoughts, and emotional patterns and building resilience. Core to her approach is to understand and work through the ways that inequality and racism can drain our energy and short-circuit our potential and diminish our belief in the capacity of systems to work for all people.  As a Black woman, she is particularly passionate about applying an emotional intelligence lens to equity to open up new possibilities for change in people and the systems they work within and to guide leaders in decolonizing mindsets and doing the inner work of equity and justice.

Estrella has a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Master of Education from UCLA. She holds an ACC credential through the International Coaching Federation and received certification through the Daniel Goleman Emotional Intelligence Coaching Program and is a certified HeartMath Coach.  Estrella completed additional training in Coaching for Equity through the Center for Equity Leadership at the National Equity Project, and earned a certificate in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion from the University of South Florida. She also has a certificate in Embodied Social Justice, an emerging field of study that explores the connection between practices of embodiment, mindfulness, and somatics and creating sustainable social justice movements. Estrella also serves as a Leadership Coach and Mentor Coach with the Noble Story Group.
