I’m passionate about the power of reinvention for individuals and organizations. With extensive experience, I’ve become known for my expertise in girls' and women's leadership development, research, and programming. I've always wanted to support women in their career journeys and help them grow professionally -- that's why I co-founded EvolveMe!
A career pivoter myself, I left my role as Chief Research Executive at Girl Scouts of the USA after a fifteen-year tenure to start my own next chapter.
My sweet spot is helping women align their professional lives with their values, using strategies based on research and practical wisdom. The women I work with often say they love having me in their corner and I'm grateful for the trusting and authentic relationships and partnerships that I've cultivated.
What gets me up in the morning is knowing that I'm providing a much-needed resource to women in midlife, who are underrepresented in leadership roles in the workforce and often face barriers due to ageism, gender discrimination, racism, pay inequity and as mothers and caregivers.
I’m fortunate to have honed my skills at national organizations like Girl Scouts of the USA and the Ms. Foundation for Women as well as locally at Pace University’s women’s leadership initiative and community-based and start-up ventures. My work has been featured at the White House, MAKERS, npr.com, Forbes.com, USA Today, The Chicago Tribune and The Washington Post.
Additionally, I bring my background as a wellness coach to promote an integrated approach for women exploring meaning and work. I hold leadership roles at several nonprofit educational institutions and a Master's of Education in human development and psychology from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
