Leadership is an exploration of the unknown. Some days are filled with fantastic discoveries and others find you face to face with what feels like insurmountable obstacles. I’ve lived through a lot of those tough days, and I’d like to help you get through yours.
I believe the path to high functioning organizations with a sustainable leadership model lies in strengthening your team’s management practice. This means investing in foundational skills, sharpening communication skills, building a team mentality, and creating frameworks to assist your team with difficult conversations and decisions.
Is your current team the largest group of humans you’ve ever managed? Are you struggling with scaling yourself to meet the needs of your team or peers? Maybe you’re dealing with a tricky human problem, or just trying to gain some confidence in a time of uncertainty. I’ve experienced the journey of managing a team of 3 to an organization of 85+ and all the ups and downs that go along with it.
Without having a coach to bring focus and reflection to my challenges, I would have never made it. I’d love to be that person for you—leveraging my experiences to support you in navigating your growth and leadership development. If you’re interested, feel free to schedule a free intro coaching session.

Good frameworks are powerful tools that reduce the cognitive load of getting things done. They enable you to channel the energies of your team in productive and pleasantly surprising ways. Does your team know when and how to introduce new technologies? Are you struggling with hiring? Do your new managers know what a year in management looks like? From documenting your unwritten rules to setting up career ladders or interview processes, sometimes you just need an extra set of hands.
With two decades working in software development and over seven years of management and leadership experience, I can help you develop frameworks that normalize your preferred practices so your team can spend less time on minutia and more energy on things that matter.
Diversity & Inclusion Consulting
From McKinsey to Harvard Business Review and beyond, the data is in, and the debate is settled. Not only is Diversity the right thing to do, it also leads to better business outcomes. Ignoring your diversity and inclusion issues creates terrible outcomes for your employees and puts you at a competitive disadvantage.
If you’re struggling with hiring members of underrepresented groups or just wondering how to get started, I can help. I’ve lead an organization that went from zero women/non-binary folks to ~35% and have real world experience in developing and implementing strategies and programs to achieve more inclusive workplaces and equitable outcomes. From developing Diversity and Inclusion as a business value to allyship and benefits analysis, I can work with you to move beyond unconscious bias training and into an action plan that gets results.
