Full bio

I am most energized when I am given something that is broken or inefficient and creating a game plan to turn it into a winner.  I believe success is dependent on the people behind the product more than the product itself. My role as a leader is to increase drive and performance by tapping into the power of a higher purpose. 

I’ve spent over a decade helping companies successfully navigate the startup stage and propel into the growth/maturity stages. I’m energized by new ideas and am known to have a knack for envisioning “what could be.”

  • Corny joke teller
  • Intellectual (they call it “Nerdy”) lifelong learner
  • Leader & Influencer
  • Critical thinker
  • Really, ridiculously good looking (maybe I made this one up)
