Executive Coach | Author | Entrepreneur
In 2007, after years of working in corporate as an employee, I chose to become an independent consultant and work remotely. With that decision came an exciting journey complete with obstacles, restrictions, excitement, opportunities and learning, learning and more learning.
I discovered the definition of work was changing and the future of work requires a different set of skills. Because I have such a love of learning, I set out to discover, develop, and share those unique requirements for successfully working remotely.
Over the years I’ve designed and developed numerous workshops and written books and articles focusing on actionable strategies to help you and I delivery our best work. This site is part of that body of work.
Experience & Education
With more than 25 years of business experience in executing a multitude of functions across diverse industries, you could say I’ve studied at the school of life.
From financial analysis in corporate budgeting and planning, to project and portfolio management to corporate-wide change implementation and helping grow a solo-business into a small business, my corporate and indie life has provided me with the rich experience of walking a mile in a number of different people’s shoes.
Even with an Ivy League education from The Wharton School, I’ve learned the hard way (through experience) that connecting, collaborating, and producing creatively are the foundation to the success of any professional – working from anywhere. Of course, that education was invaluable and it’s the combination of knowledge and experience that creates real wisdom.
My preference for efficiency and processes was taken to a new level when I earned a Green Belt in Process Design Excellence. That coupled with my love of technology (I ‘m just geeky enough to be dangerous) has proven invaluable to my consulting clients and my own business.
Of course the most complex aspect of work is human behavior. Psychology and human behavior has always interested me for personal reasons and folding that into the mix provided the missing element. I studied at The University of Pennsylvania in Organizational Dynamics and continued to earn the Professional Certified Coach credential through the International Coach Federation.
With this mix of process design, business acumen, love of technology and curiosity about human behavior, I bring a unique perspective to my project and in helping my clients.

What’s it like working with me?
I can show you how to deliver your best work – from anywhere.
I understand those difficult situations, the restrictions, the isolation, fragmentation, lack of trust, and confusion of getting work done and delivering your best results as a remote leader or worker.
That is why I do what I do – provide actionable strategies through books, workshops, and coaching to remote professionals helping you become a better communicator, collaborator, and creative producer.
As your coach, I’ll challenge you; question you; keep you focused; push you when you’re uncomfortable. I’ll also provide new perspectives; share observed patterns; and remind you of your strengths. I’ll ask you to take responsibility for your choices and actions.
When we talk, I’m 100% focused on you.
Step2: reach out with questions, ideas, or if you are interested in working together.
I look forward to connecting with you,
