I am a CEO Whisperer for owners of growth-minded small and medium businesses. What energizes me is helping them advance their companies by advising, mentoring, and coaching them, their boards, and their executive teams. My approach is focused on helping them grow personally, professionally, as leaders, and as members of the team. I am also developing a coaching program called C-Suite Bound to help ambitious and accomplished women leaders leap from middle management to the most senior executive levels. My special sauce is that I combine Strengths-based coaching with deep operational expertise at the C-level. I want all my clients to be Strengths-based organizations!
I practice as a Partner with Newport Board Group, a boutique growth advisory firm focused on the middle market. Previously, I was a senior operating executive in the software, digital media, and information products industries.
I am also an advocate for equity in education, having spent 15 years as a member of my local K-12 school and community college boards. As an aspiring children's book author I hope to help our youngest readers discover and fall in love with the critters that make the oceans and beaches special so that they will protect that ecosystem as they grow up.
