I have worked with organizations as a management consultant for over 20 years. My work is informed by a degree in anthropology from Harvard and an MBA from Yale. I look at each system as having a culture that has evolved over time, with elements that are supportive and functional for the organization and some that may be less so, which can be addressed through intentional action.

I have worked with organizations in all sectors: nonprofit, corporate, and government. Directly after my MBA, I consulted through Hewitt Associates, an international consulting firm, in their organizational effectiveness practice. I was a staff member at CompassPoint Nonprofit Services, the largest nonprofit management support organization in the US, providing research, consulting and training. I directed the People Management area and consulted in Strategic Planning, Leadership Development, and Executive Leadership Transitions.

I developed a focus around 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 focuses on

  • Leadership Development
  • Strategic Planning
  • Facilitation of Board and Staff retreats
  • Mindful Coaching programs

I teach workshops and do presentations for organizations on a variety of topics around bringing mindfulness to modern life, including: Introduction to Mindfulness, Mindfulness & Leadership, Mindfulness & Innovation, and Mindfulness & Technology.
