Executive coach, PCC, MBA, PMP

Professional Certified Coach by the International Coach Federation (ICF)

My name is Maria Wade although some of you may know me as Maria Dvurechenskaya. If you want to know a story behind the name, read this article.


I believe in people’s limitless potential, wholeness, resourcefulness, and natural creativity. An important part of my work is helping my clients detect paradigms and behaviors that don’t support their goals and best interests, and keep them from fulfilling and balanced life.

As an agent of change, I am passionate about leading individuals and organization through transitions and changes. I not only coach leaders through changes, but have managed my own transition from my native country to the United States where I am excited to make valuable contributions now. This background gives me insights into expat life, transitions and the importance of welcoming change and adapting to it.

My career has included legal services and project management in mergers and acquisition, asset management, paper production, electricity and heat production, gas and oil, consulting, and other industries. Now I run my coaching and consulting practice providing services across the world both in English and in Russian.

With the foundation of my Master’s Degree in Law, a Master’s in Business Administration, PMP® and Prosci certifications, and my completion of Columbia University’s Coaching Certification Program, I am well positioned to support clients in a broad range of sectors and work environments.

As a member of The International Coaching Federation, I strictly adhere to the ICF Code of Ethics and Standards of Conduct in my executive coaching.
