Here's a little backstory...
I have this unique perspective of life, business, family and health. I pursued them all as equally important to my overall well being. I am part of a large adventurous loving family that gave me love, support and the courage to pursue ambitious career goals.
After a 30-year career in marketing and technology, I made it to the top as Chief Marketing Officer all while staying healthy, raising two amazing humans and staying true to my authentic self. I've dealt with every type of leader, employee, and difficult circumstance in the business world. I've also learned how to stay calm in high stress situations, enjoy the challenges, and set boundaries for healthier relationships.
I love people and I love helping others. I help businesses and individuals through seasons of growth- from mergers and acquisitions to career and life transitions.
I offer innovative solutions and a different way of problem solving that challenges the status quo. We all need that someone that gives us a fresh perspective. A lens for problem solving as you make those big decisions in career, life, relationships, and business. I help you see what you are not able to see for yourself. I’ve been there. Let me help you.
The struggles of integrating it all and staying authentic to you are real. I'm here to share what has worked and what has not worked in my career, business, wellness, and home life. I absolutely love what I do.
