I am a results-driven, compassionate person who enjoys working with people who believe in the art of the possible.
I bring over a decade of consulting experience in banking, insurance, government, retail, and energy industries helping people solve complex problems and deliver valuable business solutions. Throughout my career, I have also formally trained hundreds of professionals in a variety of processes and skills.
I started my career as a Project Manager. I got to experience just about every role possible based on the needs of my project teams. We need someone to facilitate requirements sessions? I can do that. We need someone to coordinate testing… oh, and actually test? Sure, I can figure that out. We need someone to help configure the system? Show me how, and let’s do it. We need to create end user training? I’d love to try that.
I loved the interactions and growth that came with those challenges.
Several years ago, I discovered the Manifesto for Agile Software Development and the Scrum Framework. I realized that the skills that made me a great Project Manager would make me a great Scrum Master and Coach. I took the leap, and I am deeply fulfilled by where that work has led me in my personal journey.
I am passionate about enabling high performing teams, cultivating agile mindsets, and helping people discover their capacity for growth and learning.
I believe there is no such thing as work-life balance. It is all life. And each one of us must find the right balance for ourselves.
This balance connects you deeply with your soul and your purpose. This balance fires up your courage and passion. This balance helps you be fiercely kind, open, and driven.
The balance will shift over time based on what is happening around you and what is happening within you.
I call this an integrated life. This is an extraordinary life because it is a life you choose. It recognizes the simple truth that you cannot control everything around you, but you can choose how you respond and how you show up in the world.
An integrated life is sustainable and adaptable in this complex and unpredictable world. An integrated life is about living with intention, knowing that you are part of something much greater.
It is a life that rises above the culture of busyness, consumerism, and status. It is a life of integrity and personal responsibility. It is recognizing that leadership has nothing to do with your job title but rather how you show up in the world. It is a life made up of laughs and tears, and all are appreciated for the growth that came with them.
I am a coach, a professional trainer, and a speaker.
I bring my whole self to all of the work I do. I train and I coach from the standpoint that every person I work with is bringing their whole self, and they are naturally creative and resourceful.
With true alignment and solid execution, people can do the impossible.
When we know what’s most important to us and what we value, we can create alignment. Once we have alignment, we can then use execution skills and techniques to tap into our strengths and increase effectiveness, efficiency, growth. It’s all about experimentation and continuous improvement.
We need constant care and feeding.
This applies to our inner selves as well as our partnerships and our teams.
