Hello and welcome to my orbit on the online universe. 

I’m Janeé (she/her)... founder and CEO of Model Executive, a boutique leadership and career coaching, professional development and consulting firm.


As a change champion, I will prepare you to show up as your best self in a world that is almost shifting at “warp” speed.  In addition to being a certified executive business coach (ICF accredited), I am proud of my track record in Corporate America with some of the most well-known companies.

 “I’m not going to continue knocking on that old door that doesn't open for me.  I’m going to create my own door and walk through that.”

  • 10 years as a Communications, Sales, Marketing and Branding consultant

  • 6 years coaching/consulting C-Level Executives and team members in sales performance and   professional development

  • 10+ years as an international brand ambassador/model with Elite Model Management


  • International Coaching Federation (ICF) Associate Certified Coach (ACC) 

  • DISC Personality Assessment Practitioner

  • Bachelor of Science in Integrated Marketing Communications 

As a master communications and brand strategist, I have been on the cutting edge of building and transforming brands for some of the most dominant digital media giants… Amazon & Cox Media. 

And most recently consulting with Thomson Reuters in complex compliance integrated AI solutions and emerging technologies within state and local government markets.  

My expertise stems early on from being on the front lines of communications for many of the most coveted retail brands for Elite Model Management.  And serving as a Senior Director for Mary Kay Cosmetics, where I coached and mentored a team of 200+ women in personal and professional development and sales performance.


Everything I do NOW, aligns with my unique gifts, purpose, experience and passion for being a change agent, a socially and environmentally conscious culture champion, with a desire to empower people (especially women) in professional and personal development.  Improving our communication will in turn improve relationships in families, in the workplace, in business, in communities, and in life overall. 

I truly look forward to working with you!

Looking to make some changes and level up, but don’t really know where to start... 

Let’s set up a call to discuss some ideas.
