As a seasoned coach and Human Resources practitioner with over 20 years of experience in both start-up and large environments, I understand the importance of having a strategic people plan that aligns with overall business goals. My unique blend of HR and coaching brings an authentic, progressive and strategic approach to people and business. With a focus on culture, I help organizations of all sizes create and execute a people strategy that leads to a positive employee experience and directly impacts the bottom line.

Areas of expertise:

  • Overall HR/People+Culture strategy
  • HR leadership support (consult on people-related issues, challenging conversations, performance issues, compensation, etc)
  • Leadership Development (trainings, workshops, coaching circles, individual coaching)
