Since graduation from law school my work has been with organizations undergoing significant transitions - rapid growth, mergers and acquisitions, restructuring, and closings - first focused on employment law then expanding into executive roles in human resources and general management. For almost seven years I have had my own practice, Coaching for Transitions LLC, as an executive coach and consultant focused on individuals and organizations in transition. My clients range from organizations such as a rapidly growing investment firm and a non-profit anticipating rapid expansion of its charter school program to the CEO of a community bank and rising HR executives. I am currently working with a national non-profit on board development. I have completed two projects (one under Catchafire and one under the Taproot Foundation auspices) on non-profit board recruitment.

I have worked with organizations to develop strategic plans, including using the Balanced Scorecard approach, as well as tactical plans to implement those strategies. My work has included pro bono work on behalf of the Taproot Foundation, which provides service grants to non-profits. As Account Director I assembled and lead teams of volunteers on projects including a board recruitment strategy and an HR capacity build.

My professional and personal satisfaction has come from helping organizations become great places to work and individuals develop their full potential.
