“I am passionate about creating opportunities for healthier organizations and high-functioning teams to work together better. I carefully listen to our clients to discern their needs around creating healthy team dynamics while also aligning with the needs of the business. The result is teams who work better together and have more impact in the organization. A marketing career in consumer package goods, media solutions, and healthcare industries is foundational to my career in connecting executives in all industries to our solutions around C-suite coaching, leadership development, succession planning, and more.”
