MY BACKGROUND

I started my career at GE in Sales and Service after graduating with a Marketing/Management degree from Siena College. Over the course of 15 years with GE I had the opportunity to build my leadership expertise through several exciting and challenging leadership roles. After 8 years I found my lane in Leadership Development. Over the next 7 years I held leadership positions in Commercial Education, Global Leadership Development where I worked extensively with all GE businesses globally and the GE Jack Welch Leadership Institute.

My next growth adventure was to start my own consulting & coaching practice out of my home which I have successfully run for the last 22 years. I have continued to partner with GE as well as several Fortune Organizations including British Petroleum, Boeing and Henkel Loctite. I’ve had the opportunity to work with countless leaders at all levels around the world and truly love what I do. Whether partnering with a business leader to understand needs and outcomes, working with a project team implementing a change in the organization, teaching a skill workshop with practical application or coaching for development I bring all I have to offer to the engagement.

 

WHY I WORK

My work fills me with a feeling of accomplishment that feeds both my head and heart. I feel truly honored to have the opportunity to partner and collaborate with business leaders and their teams in pursuit of their personal growth. I am a firm believer in unleashing the power of the people in an organization and the positive impact they can have on business outcomes. People support what they help create…engage them!

WHEN I AM NOT WORKING

I live in the beautiful Berkshires of Western Massachusetts with my husband Will and my 97 year old Mom Marie. Will & I met at a friend’s wedding in our 40’s and have been together ever since. Having Mom with us has been and continues to be a joy we treasure. I enjoy traveling and vacation time by the ocean enjoying great company, interesting conversation and a meal with family and friends. I’m an avid reader, music and movie enthusiast and love when I get the chance opportunity to meet an author, celebrity or sports figure in an airport.
