Who am I?  Drop me into a tough or messy HR challenge and I am happy. Got a people problem, I will make the business case clear.  Enjoy new challenges.  I’ll ask the questions that get behind the issue presented.  Creating strategy is always interesting, making it work is more so.  Advisor or devil’s advocate, I’m game.  Watching those I have mentored keep growing long afterwards is a thrill.  Let me help someone and I thrive. Don’t ask me questions you do not want answered.  I’ll read anything – except most business books.  Can and will talk with anyone.  Crappy at marketing myself.  Happy to travel anywhere.  Chocoholic.   Proud to help transitioning military and veterans move forward.

I love working with founders and executives to create the culture and processes they need to successfully execute their vision. I appreciate that clients trust me with a wide range of concerns beyond human capital.
