A Little Bit About Me:


I am

A first generation American, wife of 38 years to Ken, Mom to Heather and Matthew, and Grandma to three adorable and smart little boys.

I enjoy

Reading, photography, local high school sports, good movies, time at the lake, a good Chardonnay and almost any dessert.

I try

To eat healthy, walk daily, listen carefully, and enjoy this life I am blessed to live.

I hope

Someday we'll all realize that our diversity - of culture, thought, gender, ability, race, etc., - is not a threat but, rather, what makes us great.

What I Do:

Elevate Emerging Leaders


Organizations count on front line leaders to carry out the corporate mission on a day-to-day basis. Yet, often, these leaders are the least prepared to do so.

I will help develop your emerging leaders so they can effectively meet this challenge. 

Focus on Effectiveness


Effectiveness is what shapes the success of a team or a process. Doing a task efficiently - quickly and with the least amount of energy - does not necessarily create long term success.

I will work with your team to review processes for effective outcomes to meet your goals.

Lead and Live With Authenticity


In all things, I commit to truth delivered from the heart. You and your team can always count me as an integrious partner who will listen, probe, and help you uncover excellence.

I will support you and your team on the road to discovery and results.
