Welcome!

If you’re looking for an experienced, positive, forward-thinking professional to help your business thrive in the upcoming changes in the way the world works, you’ve come to the right place. 

Connecting with others is what motivates and inspires me, so if it seems like I could be of assistance to you, contact me and we’ll begin a conversation.

A LITTLE BIT OF BACKGROUND

EXPERIENCE

 

I have over 20 years of professional experience in roles ranging from management consultant to VP of business development and communications. I’ve led small teams, large teams, global teams and virtual teams. My career has led me all over the world, serving organizational leaders from all walks of life. The common thread throughout my career has been a strong focus on communications, emotional intelligence, and the use of technology and its future trends.

I’ve worked for global firms such as Deloitte, AeCOM, BCD Travel, and RGP. I’ve also worked for smaller non-profit organizations such as SAMA and EIIA. I fit in anywhere and effectively interact with employees at all levels of the organization.  

CREDENTIALS

 

I have more professional credentials than anyone I know (see below for details). Why? Because they (usually) result in greater knowledge, which in turn results in providing better service to my clients. They also give clients the peace of mind that I have been trained to maximize my skills. Not all credentials are created equal, however. Anyone can put a few classes together and offer a certification course regardless of their own qualifications to do so.

My certifications come from the most credible global organizations, and include ICF ACC, Hogan Assessments, Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Coaching, EQ-i 2.0, EQ-i 360, and Prosci Change Management Practitioner.

EDUCATION

 

I earned my undergraduate degree in communications from Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. I earned my Masters in Management - Global Workforce Collaboration from Saybrook University out of San Francisco, California. While both provided valuable knowledge, my masters degree really gives me the edge when working with clients from all corners of the world.

GLOBAL EXPERIENCE

 

I’m a true global citizen and identify more as a human being than from an individual from any specific country. An American citizen, I grew up in London and Switzerland. I’ve lived and traveled extensively around the world for both pleasure and work. I speak 3.5 languages and feel most comfortable in rooms where there are people speaking in many foreign languages!

CORE VALUES

Excellence

I constantly strive to raise my standards and provide nothing but excellence to all aspects of my life. I bring my A game and give my all to whatever it is I am focused on at any give time. Don’t cut corners, and don’t let other people set the standard because life is too short to not be a fully engaged participant!

Authenticity

Lots of people deliberately wear their work hats when they go to work and their family hats when they go home and their friend hats when they’re out socializing. That’s not me. I have one hat that reflects who I am. Yes, certain times do call for certain behaviors, but with me, WYSIWYG.

Growth

Life is growth. Period. I strongly believe in continuously improving in the areas that are core to my well-being as a well-rounded individual. I spend large amounts of time and money reading and learning. It’s a passion and life purpose that is central to the essence of who I am.

PROUDLY CREDENTIALED

Anyone can hang a shingle on their door and start a coaching or consulting business, but the chances are quite significant that one who has been trained by credible, globally-recognized institutions will provide you with a better client experience. Even individuals with fantastic business and general life experience need to learn what it means to be an effective coach or consultant. Therefore, don’t hire a one without first understanding what their training and credentials are.

I have certifications from many of the best organizations in the world. I’ve invested significant time and resources into these because they help equip me with the tools and knowledge needed to exceed client expectations - and provide more value than anyone else.

FOUR LIFE MOTTOS

What are the mottos that guide you when you derail in your thoughts or behaviors for a little while? What do you say to yourself to realign with your values? Mine aren’t particularly unique, but I keep them in the forefront of my mind at all times and pull them out as needed.
