Hi there. I’m Dolores, an executive coach and the founder of Scend. I became a coach after a decade in the startup world, holding leadership and executive roles at high-growth companies like WeWork and Hello Alfred. I believe entrepreneurs have world-changing potential, and I’m passionate about supporting my clients in unlocking all that is theirs to create in this world.
As a startup veteran, I bring a wealth of executive and operational experience to my coaching. From honing your strategic vision to best practices in motivating, managing, hiring and firing — I’ve been there and can support you in mastering the inner-game, so that you can lead with confidence and ease.
Coaching is an iterative process that creates a resounding impact throughout your life and organization. I work with clients in the following ways to support on-going expansion.
One-to-one coaching creates deep inner clarity so that you can show up as your most authentic, resourceful and creative self.
Individual coaching typically requires a minimum investment of $3,600, and is necessary for a CEO and/or Co-founder prior to the Leadership Alignment program.
When the leadership team is internally aligned, the whole company thrives. Leadership Alignment is a 6-8 month group coaching program that reduces drama and catalyzes team alignment.
After just a few months, leaders often report increased trust and teamwork, clearer/faster decision making, and improved business outcomes.
Retreats provide an opportunity to deepen clarity, alignment and connection across the broader organization. These events can be held virtually or in-person, and the programming is customized to meet the needs of your growing org.

She is a true thinking partner that accelerates my personal and professional growth. I give Dolores my highest recommendation.”
“I sought out coaching from Dolores to get support in tackling uncertainty and indecision. I knew I needed a change from familiar thought patterns and ways of processing, but wasn't quite sure how to move forward on my own. Dolores introduced new ways of seeing the problem and I not only gained clarity from her structured explorations and frameworks, but also the skills to apply these to other situations in my life. I'd strongly recommend Dolores as a coach for anyone wanting to make a significant shift!”
