Multilingual and international, I connect people and information, building bridges across knowledge silos to inform strategy and make things happen.

I get excited about expanding what's possible--whether it's processes, products, or people-to-people: especially if it promotes wellness, unleashes human potential, increases individual liberty, frees markets, or simply makes the world a better and more interesting place.

Healthcare, policy, nonprofits are a few of the areas in which I have particular competency. I also deeply love the arts-- particularly paintings and illuminated manuscripts--and adore music of all kinds, particularly early music, classical music and the Austin sound (hometown influence obliges). With my wide range of interests and a global network, if it's not something I'm working on, I very likely can still make connections for people and projects.

My professional skills include:

•Executive leadership and operations



•Structuring the deal, closing the sale

•Building relationships

--stakeholder engagement

--making connections that create synergy

•Effective persuasion and outreach

•Multi-channel communications

•Culturally attuned

•Cross-sector competency

Actively engaged on several boards and advise think tanks around the world. I am also very committed to mentoring young people--it's rewarding and a lot of fun!
