Engagement Leader

Meet the entire team

Actions speak louder than insights. I bring an authentic curiosity to all client interactions and seek to co-create meaningful solutions. While the insight and experience I’ve gained from 15 years of consultative sales/business development work in media, nonprofit, financial services and consulting industries elicit confidence, it is in keeping my promises to my clients that I build lasting trust.


I learned some things about balancing art and science from my Acton MBA program, which required “People” and “Life of Meaning” courses in addition to the traditional curriculum. I revel in creatively responding to the ebbs and flows of my clients’ businesses and delivering a strong value proposition. A client shared with me his aha moment with Effective Edge: “It was your tool which allowed me to succeed. My part was to use it. Together we did it!”


In my free time, I enjoy whipping up a paella or pipian verde and spending time with my daughter and husband. Barring 100+ degree temperatures, you might find me paddle boarding or spending time on the trails with our dogs.
