Throughline coaching

About Throughline

Throughline is a coaching practice that works with leaders and high achievers.

Hi, I'm Mindy, a leadership coach and facilitator

I moved from China to the U.S. when I was 4 years old. I experienced the ups and downs of first-generation immigrant life. Amidst the turbulence, I was a creative at heart. After writing a lot of poetry and making art as a kid (and a brief stint as a math nerd), I embraced pragmatism by studying Business at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School.

I've spent the past decade of my career in product leadership at Microsoft, Dropbox, and most recently as Head of Growth Product at Oscar Health.

It's my privilege to coach leaders through crucial changes. As a coach, I'm trained in Organization and Relationship Systems (ORSC), NLP, and Non-Violent Communication. I also facilitate groups of leaders with On Deck and The Grand.

Outside of coaching, I love spending ample time with my kind, amazing, inspiring partner Ben and our two pups, Dug and Remy (named after Pixar movies). We're building a house in the Berkshires and occasionally pop into New York City to soak in the arts and swing dancing.

Why "throughline?"

A through line is a connecting element or theme that runs through a story. A well-crafted through line is simple, elegant, and insightful. It has stakes and reveals deeper truths.

In our coaching journey, we will explore your story, aspirations, challenges, and motivations. With this clarity, we shape a path forward— so you can close the gap between where you are and where you want to be.

What's the meaning of the arch?

In 2019, I saw a work of art by Lee Ufan on the Japanese island of Naoshima: a large metal arch held by two boulders on either side. A walkway stretched from one side of the arch to the other.

Change is both complex and simple. It calls upon our courage to see the path in front of us and venture through the arch. As Anaïs Nin said: "Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage."
