Working with me, you will . . . 

Get outside your comfort zone for growth, progress and fulfillment.

Develop your strategic thinking and risk-taking muscles.

Build resilience, confidence, drive, courage and focus.

Institute a clearer lens for decision making and risk-taking based on a mix of data, intuition and values.

More job interviews,

offers, & dollars.

Define meaningful and satisfying work so you

can fully thrive.

Forge a path to fully accepting your authentic self - whoever that is. 

Be bold, find your voice, and exercise your power.

Strike a balance between goals, values, ethics and workplace environments

laden with fuckery.


Navigate and tear down oppressive systems while

still making money!
