Meet your coach

About Me

I am a certified Leadership and Sales coach with over 30 years of experience within the Hospitality & Tourism Industry. Prior to becoming a full-time coach, I served in capacities in the field, from a front-line restaurant and lodging employee to managing restaurants in San Francisco as well as building and owning a successful event planning business and now a business consultant.

My specialty comes in coaching business leaders, startups, and teams like yours to create a culture of relationship-building sales, hone leadership skills, and empower the next generation of leaders to maximize professional and personal outcomes.

Blending humor, empathy, positivity, and accountability, I help leaders initiate change, move forward with clarity, challenge internal narratives, and embrace self-compassion.

My goal is to understand your unique needs and develop a strategy that aligns with your goals and helps you achieve your mission.

How it all started…

I have been independently consulting with businesses on relationship-building customer service including phone skills, front-line customer service, sales, and leadership techniques for over 20 years. Previously, I was a business consultant for a hospitality software company that assisted the lodging industry on how to drive revenue through elevating sales techniques. Introducing me to the Vacation Rental Industry as a vendor instead of a consumer.

After years of experience, I understood how frustrating it can be to keep up to date with the ever-changing business environment and can relate to your challenges when it comes to marketing, business management, communication, and leadership, and marketing. In 2013, I launched Spark Your Mindset LLC (previously Cammelletti Consulting), focusing on the hospitality industry specifically. 

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my little girl, Chela, running, cross-country skiing, hiking, golfing, and camping. I am a Central Oregon native that moved back after pursuing my restaurant career in San Francisco, California.
