“My work has always been focused on improving the well-being of individuals and communities by advocating for connection, belonging, social justice, women’s empowerment and the resiliency of the human spirit/heart.”

She has a successful track record of building trust with C-suite leaders and their teams, coaching them to be more effective in how they engage, communicate, problem solve, and build trust and awareness. She is a bridge-builder, convener, and champion of diversity, equity and inclusion, and wonders what a civil, equitable, and inclusive society could look like.
