About

Founder and CEO of Cognitive Performance

Thank you for visiting my website! 

Each one of us has a deep desire to contribute to life. We strive to bring forth our unique internal calling of who we are into fruition. And…the good new is…there is no one like you!

As professionals, we of us have an in-depth knowledge of expertise that is begging to be maximized and shared. Whether you are a CEO of a multi-million dollar company or someone searching for their internal voice and “soul” purpose, I am confident I help.

My gift is to understand your genius quickly and get you to take the actions needed to get you what you want out of your life.

Like you, my family of origin, my circumstances, and my actions created where I am today. My investigation of “WHY” led me to seek advanced business education degrees and professional certifications in coaching and mindfulness. Each layer has allowed me to expand my talent exponentially. With confidence, I confess I can narrow in on where you are, where you need to make changes to improve or maximize your current circumstances quickly. I want the best for you – By you being fully amazing, we will all benefit!

Client Testimonials

Jasmine R

Product & Digital Marketer

I cannot express how grateful I am for Bernadette's guidance and support. During an unsettling job transition, Bernadette was able to offer counsel that led me to an amazing career opportunity. Her specific and tailored advice allowed me to increase in my salary by 50%! Without her mentorship, I can sincerely say that I would not have been able to adequately and concisely explain many of my job functions. She is patient, kind, and generous and I would recommend her without hesitation.
