my story...

I spent 20 years in Corporate America, the last 10 leading talent & development in the pharmaceutical/biotechnology industry. I have worked entry-level and at the Director level influencing Senior Leaders on a global scale.  I earned my first degree with a 1-year old in tow.  I earned my Masters in Organizational Psychology working full-time, being a wife, and parenting 2 amazing kids.  

I know what it's like to work hard, be successful, and still wonder what your next step is or if you can achieve the big things you want for yourself. I can help you get promoted, excel as a leader, or find your dream job. You'll achieve your goals and feel better than ever in the process.
