About me

I love a challenge, enjoy strategic thinking, and am skilled at anticipating obstacles and developing innovative strategies to meet changing needs. I am an excellent communicator with strong listening, analysis, project management, change management, collaboration, and coaching skills.



I have spent more than half my career solving complex problems brought on by growth. While the examples from my background illustrate solutions I’ve put in place, when we work together we’ll find the solutions that are right for your particular situation – whether it’s similar to one of these or completely different. Please see the Working Together page to learn more about the process. 

While leading the internal team member experience, strategic initiatives, and operations at a mid-sized government consulting firm I put in place new systems, programs, and processes after a period of rapid growth to help the team operate more smoothly and plan for the future

At a newly formed consulting firm, I implemented technology solutions and built the foundation for a compelling employee value proposition, enabling the founders to focus on client work immediately upon launch 

As Chief of Staff of a startup innovation group within a larger firm, I managed strategic planning efforts, built a guidebook for staff, and worked daily with leaders and internal support teams to share the information and access needed to meet bold targets

In what by now seems like an earlier life, I did other things, including teach French history, literature, and language at the undergraduate and graduate levels; live in France for a while; and have an absolute blast on three different National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) courses.
