Mother & Wife.
More than anything else I can share about myself, I'm a proud and busy mother of 3 amazing humans and life partner of 20 years.
You should also know that I've always colored a little outside the lines. This is us, getting hitched after 20 years together. Having a built-in wedding party was a bonus.
In a time when it's far too easy to advise or admonish others from the sidelines, I only work with individuals, teams and organizations who are willing to get on the court. Seeking a career change, increasing team productivity or restoring organizational trust can only happen through courage, vulnerability, trial, learning and an individual and collective growth mindset.
Having held management and leadership roles at Nordstrom.com, Starbucks (corporate), Getty Images and Justworks, I founded OrgSavvy to go deeper in the areas my clients say are my superpowers: authenticity, trust-building and pushing people beyond their preconceived barriers.
I like to have fun. Inspiring others gets me out of bed in the morning.
As a DYNAMIC SPEAKER, I use stories of wins and losses, my own and others, to move audiences and have each attendee get in touch with a new part of themselves.
As an ENGAGING FACILITATOR, I create dynamic learning opportunities that clients refer to as “relevant, fun and practical.” I am an expert facilitator of programs such as Everything DiSC, Executive Presence, Situational Leadership® and more, and have successfully led training sessions and keynote speeches for groups of hundreds at all levels of an organization throughout the United States, and globally in Canada, London, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
As a TRUSTED COACH, I help high-potential employees and growth-oriented individuals apply feedback to overcome obstacles in their careers and achieve personal development goals. I am a curator of excellence and help individuals and teams take the best ideas from today’s influencers and put them into action.
When I'm not focusing on my family or running my business, you can find me on an early morning walk or reading a personal growth book with a Starbucks coffee in hand.
The wonderful world of self-publishing allowed me to bring a topic I'm passionate about to life -- validating feelings and helping kids (ok, parents too!) move through discomfort and uncertainty.
It's been shared in multiple schools as part of social emotional learning programming and the sequel, "Its OK for Boys to Cry" will be written one of these days.
