I had the opportunity to witness Evy’s ability to bring people together to effectively lead and coach them through change. Evy’s vast experience in Leadership and Organization Development allows her to effectively work with teams with varied backgrounds and business focus. I look forward to the opportunity to work with Evy in the future.

Louise Bertrand, Regional Director
GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals

Evy Severino is an accomplished and highly experienced HR professional who can walk into any situation and excel. She can show companies and individuals how to leverage their strengths and manage their challenges. I trust her completely for guidance, and for finding practical solutions to complex problems. Any organization would benefit from her help. In fact the bigger the challenges, the more your company needs Evy.

Mary Nell Cummings, Adjunct Faculty,
Business Law at Empire State College and Consultant, NorthStar Partners

I had the great pleasure of working with Evy Severino at GlaxoSmithKline on many different initiatives. Her extensive knowledge of human behavior and how organizations work was invaluable to me and my team.

In addition to the support she gave to the rest of the organization, Evy was a trusted advisor to the GSK executive team, guiding them through strategic change processes and challenging their thinking on how to best lead the organization to achieve its goals.

Evy’s professionalism is impeccable, but she is also a joyful, optimistic person whose humor can diffuse conflict in a productive way. I highly recommend Evy as a human resources professional and as a person.”

When a colleague and I had the idea to start a network for women CEOs of nonprofits in Southwestern PA last year, we asked Evy Severino and Nancy Furbee to help us make it happen. They listened to our needs and custom-designed a series of short leadership experiences that gave us new perspectives and tools to use in our organizations. Even more important, they helped us create a community of executives who can pick up the phone and call each other when we are stuck. Nancy and Evy brought outstanding expertise and were the glue that held our group together. 

Bobbi Watt Geer, Ph.D., President & CEO 
United Way of Westmoreland County

Evy is able to zero in on the key issues and respectfully move people from where they are to where they need to be.

Jean Nagy, Founder, The Bottom Line Doctor

In a highly organized, productive manner, Evy got us all talking about the things that we wanted to improve in our office. We realized that our priorities and problems were all similar, but that we had different ways of expressing them. In three hours, we isolated primary pain points and developed actionable solutions that we will carry out ourselves.

3 weeks later, we’re still elbow deep in implementation. Our session with Evy was truly a turning point for our office. Overall morale has improved, and we all share a sense of shared purpose and commitment to bettering our work environment.

Christina Keffer, Website Marketing Manager

The national manager’s meeting went even better than expected. We achieved our desired outcomes…GREAT exercises.

Sales Vice President
Major Pharmaceuticals Company

Evy is very, very compassionate – you feel she is right there with you.

Evy is an expert executive coach who brings the right mix of business acumen/experience, creativity and functional knowledge. Based on my experience, I am confident that Evy is equipped to provide excellent results in any situation. I am in the process of engaging her for a second coaching opportunity and she is on the top of my list of go-to consultants/coaches outside of my organization.

Karen Zelenski
Executive HR Director
Bayer HealthCare

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Evy with a fledgling CEO group I was co-chairing. Evy worked with me to help the group evolve, developing trust and refining the interpersonal coaching and problem-solving skills of the group over the course of a year. She helped me take the group from a mere idea to a fully-formed CEO peer group engaging in coaching and real-time problem-solving, using practical tools with broad and useful application. I’ve used the tools from my work with Evy in all aspects of my professional career, and carried them into my personal life, as well.

Kara Rutowoski, Executive Director
The Early Learning Institute


I gained a tremendous amount of value from working with Evy. She helped me uncover the characteristics and traits that define my personality and form the basis for my behavior patterns. We used these insights to come up with plans and approaches for increasing my effectiveness in the workplace. I was also able to leverage some of these learnings into my personal life.

Financial Services Executive, Fortune 200


When I initially hired Evy as my coach, part of me wanted someone just to tell me what to do! But that’s not how things went, which was definitely for the better.  She guided me to let my own path unfold.After four months of coaching, I have a new confidence and a higher level of ownership for my job. I am more mindful in how I approach interactions at work and at home. And, I am taking some tools with me to use on my own. 

Director, Non-Profit


Coaching with Evy helped me through a tough time and got me started off on the right foot in my new position. 

Association Executive

Working with Evy was not “work.” The process was structured but flexible to allow room for my personal preferences and she never held back!  She was on the journey with me to guide me outside of my comfort zone in a smooth and unthreatening way.

High Potential Manager
Fortune 100 Company

Thank you for helping me to grow as a person and more fully connect to the joy in my professional life. Thank you for helping me see again, more clearly, what matters most.

Pharmaceuticals Company

Evy is a highly skilled, gentle, honest, and effective coach. I credit my time with Evy for allowing me to grow professionally, for helping me to accept both work and life challenges, and for helping me see the gifts and strengths I can offer a work team.

Sr. Consultant
Global Consulting Firm

I rejected the idea of a coach for many years. Evy is different: She carefully tailors her approach to my situation; she listens deeply and hears things that I’m saying which show me my barriers and open doors; she provides honest, pin-point observations – some uncomfortable to listen to; and she asks questions that help me guide my journey daily, beyond the coaching session. Perhaps the most valuable skill she’s taught me is how to listen to myself and correct my course immediately.

By applying what I’m learning, I’m not only enjoying my life more but it’s contagious – it’s helping the people around me see things more optimistically and understand where they can make things better too. I asked Evy to help me get back into my “Zone”. Well, the Zone she’s helping me find is far beyond what I had in mind…and I’m excited to get deeper into it!
