More About Me

I am independent corporate director, business advisor, executive coach, and consultant for a range of industries and organizations. Services include professional coaching, strategic planning, goal setting, transition planning, team-building, crisis management, staff diversification, confidence training, internal and board communication, organizational analysis and redesign, case study research and analysis, financial analysis/planning, group workshops, work-family navigation, career coaching, and mentoring.

I draw from a wealth of experience in social entrepreneurship, having spent 27 years at the forefront of the field of “active transportation,” ferociously building programs and teams across business, government, academia and advocacy. We can make a profit while doing good for the world! I believe success comes from hard work and dedication, empathy and compassion, constant learning, measured risk-taking, surrounding oneself with excellent people, teamwork, and willingness to make tough decisions.

I am pleased to offer the Everything DiSC suite of personality and workplace tools.

Experience-Based Approach

Executive & Professional Coaching 

Every career is a journey, full of ups and downs, twists and turns. I bring a versatile and robust toolkit of proven strategies to assist executive and professionals in overcoming challenges, growing their confidence, and accelerating their careers. My approach includes a never-ending well of positive energy and a passion for balance and success. It is my greatest joy to put my experience to good use and I apply a business lens to ensure individual progress translates to organizational success.

Business Consulting

Every business is a journey, every challenge an opportunity. Working with business advisors was the one of the critical keys to the success of the businesses I led. Examples of ways I can help your business thrive: re-calibrating a dysfunctional department, team or relationship; team building; reworking organizational structures; internal communication strategies; leadership training; retreat facilitation; individual coaching; strategic planning.

Independent Corporate Director

It is my honor to serve on select corporate boards, offering my energy and expertise to advance a company's goals.
