I’ve built my career helping organizations tell their stories and develop their people. I bring over a dozen years of experience leading marketing and communications efforts, originally in the nonprofit sector. I also designed and delivered trainings to youth mentoring organizations across the country. Most recently, I spent over six years leading communications and people operations programs at Google.
As a coach and consultant, I weave in my communications background to help people define who they are as leaders and build their communication skills. In addition to working with organizations, I've served as a communication coach at Stanford University School of Business and am currently an instructor at Portland State University's School of Business.
I have a BA in Cultural Anthropology and an MA in Education, both from Stanford University, and I've completed training at The Coaches Training Institute (CTI). I currently live in Portland, Oregon with my husband and two kids. In my free time, you can find me practicing yoga or pilates, trail running, or most likely, running to keep up with my kids.
