I help people find work and play that brings them joy, drawing on 25 years in the corporate, academic, and non-profit sectors to guide forward-thinking people and organizations--from Fortune 500 companies to fresh startups and sole proprietors. In 2017, I retired from full-time corporate work and jumped into my passions of design.
A big kid at heart, a passion for adventure leads me around the world as a travel writer, photography teacher, communications and program management specialist, corporate consultant, arts educator, and design junkie. As a cancer-survivor-turned-advocate and dynamic public speaker, you can also catch me preaching the gospel of women's health for Cervivor.org.
In my leisure time, I particularly enjoy slow travel, live music, Jane Austen novels, film, bowling, kayaking, day dreaming, sea glass, gardening, Muggle Studies, all-things vintage, and antique treasure hunting.
