How I can help you
I can help you develop business goals, plan for execution of those plans, and transition from start-up to operations.
With nearly thirty-five years in business leadership positions, I have extensive experience in transforming a business idea from an "inkling" to an actionable, measurable, and operational plan. I have supervised countless business projects from start to finish with focus on defining objectives, gathering and prioritizing requirements, communicating with stakeholders, developing budgets, and recruiting and managing teams. I have a special interest in coaching business leaders as they develop their strengths in organizational communication and inflluence. I can also provide skill development guidance in business communications, project planning, risk management, cyber security, operations management, and performance coaching. I am a member of the Eastside branch of the Seattle SCORE chapter.
In addition to my business background, I have a master's degree in counseling psychology as well as certification as a professional and life coach. I am a certified Myers-Briggs practioner.
