I have been working with organizations as a management consultant for over 15 years. I look at each system as having a culture that has evolved over time, with some elements that are supportive and functional for the organization and some that may not be.

I have worked with organizations in all sectors: corporate, government, and nonprofit. Directly after my MBA, I consulted through Hewitt Associates, an international consulting firm, in their organizational effectiveness practice, doing projects around employee engagement, organizational culture analysis for merging companies, staffing structure, and analysis for Forbes magazines Best Companies to Work For study.

I later worked at CompassPoint Nonprofit Services, a nonprofit management support organization, providing research, consulting and training. I directed the People Management area as well as doing work in Strategic Planning and Executive Leadership Transitions.

I developed a focus in leadership development, facilitating networks for women executive directors of color, LGBTQ executive directors, and human resources directors.

I have taught and coached in leadership programs in a variety of fields, including providing training and facilitation through American Leadership Forum, Young President’s Organization, and others.

My current work includes

  • leadership development
  • staff management
  • facilitation of board and staff retreats
  • strategic planning
  • mindfulness coaching programs for organizations
