I help leaders enhance their communications, presentations, storytelling and presence. And when they improve these skills, it opens up a world of possibilities for improved performance and stronger results for them and their teams. I also help organizations develop a more nimble, adaptive leadership culture that allows them to successfully navigate this increasingly fast-paced, unpredictable and complex world.
I’m a strong believer in thoughtful, empathetic, disciplined leadership. I help leaders strengthen connections and motivate everyone around them. In my experience, the very best leaders inspire their employees by developing open and trusting relationships.
I have travelled an interesting career path: television news anchor and reporter, Employee Communications Director and Executive Keynotes Director at Intel Corporation, and now leadership coach and consultant.
I reside in Portland, Oregon and have the pleasure of living with and near four generations of family. I played multiple sports all the way through high school in the Los Angeles area and am still a huge sports fan today. Whatever sport is in season, I’m either playing it or watching it. My other passion is long walks in the country or the city. Many are in the rain—I do live in Oregon after all—but there’s a saying we have here, “If you don’t do things in the rain in Oregon, you don’t do things.” I like to do things.
And I would love to connect with you! Let’s have a conversation sometime soon.
