Throughout the course of my career as a leader in human resources and operations, I have consistently strengthened execution through the identification, recruitment, and development of top talent for the executive suite and broader workforce for global firms.

I am a Talent Program Delivery Manager focused on leadership assessment and executive coaching in the Global Talent organization for Starbucks, the global leader in coffee retailing and products, at the company’s corporate headquarters in Seattle, WA. I am responsible for all things leadership assessment and coaching related as a part of preparing our current and next generation leaders for a rapidly evolving and growing company.

My skills include Human Capital Strategy • Workforce Planning • Talent Acquisition • Talent Management • Leadership Assessment • Recruitment • Sourcing • Business Partnership • Employee Relations • Talent Evaluation • Diversity & Inclusion • Regulatory Compliance • Compensation • Onboarding • Project Management • Personality Assessments • Coaching • SPSS • R and more…

I love helping people solve problems and accomplish their development goals!

Outside of work you will find me volunteering with organizations like TEDxSeattle and Soldiers' Angels. In my down time I am usually looking for that next great cup of coffee, enjoying time with my amazing wife and family, reading, laughing at my favorite comedian, learning to cook, and traveling.
