An experienced and practical leader and manager. I bring over 28 years of diverse experience to every engagement and every conversation. My passion is to ensure the right solutions are found, regardless from whom or where, by empowering the contribution of all participants.
I bring a strong belief in people; that they’re their best when just being who they really are, and organizations build the best most lasting success through empowering diverse teams.
I spent nearly 20 years at Microsoft and a few more at Amazon and Apptio, growing my skills and passion for technology. I proudly delivered with teams that shipped some of the biggest software titles in history. I learned a lot about working in large divers teams, creating technology solutions, designing and running scaled business solutions, and how to build and lead great teams as a direct manager.
As I explored my personal career, I really got excited around focusing more of time and thinking into growing people and teams. To really invest in coaching to support individual and group development, and consulting with my experience in business process development and scaled operations.
To that end, in July of 2018 I made the decision to transition to being a full time coach and consultant
As a coach I’m focused on helping people advance their journey. From time to time, we all get stuck in parts of our lives; stuck finding the meaning, a path forward, or building the courage to take that next step. Personal Coaching is a great approach to digging a bit deeper, and finding your path forward, your way. To bring more to every conversation I’m currently earning my formal coaching certification from CTI & the ICF, and was certified as a Myers-Briggs Practitioner in February of 2019.
As a consultant, I’m passionate about achieving results through aligning leaders and leadership teams with business processes and team abilities. This often requires growing leaders to that next level, building and implementing business process that are tailored to fit the challenge, and assessing and growing teams to bring the required skills and performance to meet customer and business challenges.
Outside of work I enjoy my passion for technology. I spend time writing code, 3D printing, Arduino , playing with a never-ending stream of new devices. I also enjoy reading and exploring history, traveling, and having great conversations with friends and family
