I help individuals, teams and organisations perform at their best.
I am a purpose-driven organisational development consultant and business coach and mentor with expertise in business strategy, performance, engagement, leadership and change. I have 20 years’ experience working in a multinational pharma organisation as well as more than 5 years of professional experience working in education/non-profit community organisations. I am an out queer (non-binary, gay) person with years of leadership in LGBTQ+ inclusion, and I have been recognised as an Involve Top 50 OUTstanding LGBT+ Future Leader. I am a Co-Founder and current Co-Chair of the Proud Science Alliance, a collective of healthcare and life sciences sector LGBTQ+ networks and partners who work together to raise the bar on LGBTQ+ inclusion within their organisations and the sector as a whole. I'm a creative type who understands the necessity and value of research and detail. I prefer diverse, open-minded, relatively informal environments that support doing great, meaningful work.
What does diversity and inclusion mean to me? To be our best selves, our best teams and our best organisations, we must recognise and honour the value we and others bring. This means not simply getting the numbers equal, putting up quotes on websites or simply complying with laws. We must invite everyone to participate, to contribute and to co-create in order to realise our ambition to be creative, innovate and perform at the highest level—to be our best we all must show up completely, open hearted, and we have to invite others to do the same.

I am from the United States and emigrated to the UK in 2005 to be with my now husband, Greg, who is British. I love exercise, reading, spending time with friends, collecting urban/street art and making things with my hands.
