Business Meeting

What’s important to me is making work as good a place as it can be for leaders and their teams.


A primary focus of my work is ensuring a foundation of inclusion and psychological safety. This is the starting point for a strong culture that promotes robust performance, superior problem solving and innovation, and a great employee experience. 


I work to get your leadership team and organization "on the same page.” I have successfully helped senior teams and organizations create better connectivity, alignment, and accountability. My work with you includes:

  • Developing and implementing strategies related to culture and organizational change

  • Advising executives and their teams

  • Bringing an understanding and practice of inclusion and psychological safety

  • Managing “growing pains” of growing companies

  • Redesigning work processes

  • Facilitating senior team retreats and supporting dispersed and virtual teams 

  • Supporting employee development, succession, and talent management
