Hello! I am a longtime SF Bay Area resident who has been privileged to live and work in Silicon Valley for most of my career. I am a seasoned executive with broad functional experience and a successful track record of leading large, multi-cultural teams and complex coalitions of Public-Private Partnerships.
My background includes senior leadership positions in Operations, Engineering, Sales, IT (CIO through Y2K), Learning & Development, HR, and Business Consulting. I also have significant experience in the Economic Development and Non-Profit sectors. My family and I spent nearly four years living in Johannesburg, South Africa while I worked with the African Union to create a socio-economic development framework to help reduce poverty, increase sustainable growth and accelerate the empowerment of women through Education.
My focus is assisting businesses and non-profits in their pursuit of organizational alignment and operational excellence. My personal experience in strategic planning, organization design, workforce development, and change management has given me the insight and perspective to greatly enhance an organization’s ability to achieve results.
I am a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh and I hold an MBA from Santa Clara University.
