San Diego, California, United States
I'm a corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability consultant, facilitator, and speaker with over 30 years of experience in the small business, nonprofit, and corporate sectors. My professional background includes strategic planning, interim executive management, operations, marketing, event management, and business development. Early in my career, I discovered my passion for CSR while working at American Express, where I developed and led a variety of successful good citizenship initiatives.
In 2005 I took a huge leap of faith and founded VIANOVA, a sustainable business consulting and training firm dedicated to helping companies connect their business success and social good. Every day I get to leverage my diverse business experience and social responsibility expertise to help my clients build better businesses: better for their employees, customers, and communities as well as the environment. I'm proud to say that VIANOVA was one of the first certified B Corporations, a classification reserved for businesses that adhere to rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Recently I have been a featured speaker on the topic of B Corporations and CSR for numerous conferences, radio programs, and client events.
