My clients value my skill in helping them unlock leadership effectiveness, connect strategy to execution, and increase trust and collaboration. Personal benefits include improved relationships, better health and overall life as well as work satisfaction.

I am sought after by investor-owned companies to help them reach the next level of growth and profitability. Areas of specialty interest include strengths and challenges of entrepreneurship in both small and large organizations, cultivation of executive presence, career resilience, effective communication, and accountability.

Based on my diverse work and life experiences, I have written Step Up Now: 21 Powerful Principles for People Who Influence Others.  This book has been widely praised for its novel, yet practical approach to understanding and creating positive, lasting change for leaders.

Looking for a speaker for your next conference, workshop, or other event? Do you want someone who will leave your audience challenged and thinking about the presentation long after it’s over? No matter what the venue, I excel in delivering meaningful content in an engaging manner.

Aside from helping motivated, high-achieving leaders and influencers to be their best in their own corner of the corporate, small business, and nonprofit world, I believe in making an investment in the leadership of tomorrow through global mentorship. I speak from more than 25 years of experience as a leader in industry, as a business coach, a women’s leadership coach, and as an executive recruiter to develop young leaders at home and throughout the world.
