About Me

I love helping people discover how to apply their strengths creatively and courageously to achieve their goals. We unearth hidden assumptions that are holding them back and incorporate neuroscience and other proven methodologies to make thinking and acting differently easier than they thought possible. As they step into the best version of themselves, they start seeing outcomes in multiple aspects of their lives and become more joyful, confident and centered.
 

Over my 30+ year career I’ve managed projects, teams, and organizations to increase their profitability and effectiveness. I lead teams to envision what’s possible, unearth root causes of problems, strengthen communication and collaborations, and implement solutions to create step changes. I’ve done this within Proctor & Gamble, Essendant, school districts, non-profits, a law firm, and a small IT business.

I’ve been happily married for over 27 years and have two wonderful sons. Psychology, business, science, health, fitness, nutrition, cooking, skiing, and gardening have always been passions of mine. I have won Toastmasters speech competitions, successfully managed transitioning industries and careers, overcome shyness and chronic pain, managed multiple interstate moves, and reentered the workforce after staying home with my children. These experiences have given me tremendous faith in what my clients can create for themselves.
