I have the tools and understanding to help you to create the life you imagine and renew your sense of self. I have worked in the private and public sectors for more than twenty years and have a broad background in coaching and consulting. I have experience in advising, higher education, financial management, policy analysis, strategy and international relations.
Most recently, I was the Associate Dean of Graduate Programs for the College of Business at the University of Oregon. I started my academic career in 2006 as an Assistant Professor of Economics and Research Methods at California State University, Monterey Bay, where I taught finance and accounting for the Executive MBA Program. While at CSU Monterey Bay, I also served as the Director of the Master of Public Policy Program, in collaboration with the Panetta Institute for Public Policy. I was also the Director of Career Services at USC Price and an Adjunct Professor of Finance at the Monterey Institute of International Studies.
Throughout my extensive career in financial services and wealth management, I successfully managed multi-million dollar client portfolios at some of the most respected financial institutions in the world.
I have served as a strategic consultant for more than a decade and now as a success coach for purpose-driven people and enterprises, I help both level-up professionally and personally.
I work to empower you to be your best self in all aspects of life. Our work begins with me listening to your story and assessing your needs and desires. Together we construct a path to help you reach your full potential.
I will help you realize your goals and provide you with a roadmap to not only reach them but accomplish much more.
Life can be stressful. It's important to carve for yourself the time you deserve. I am here to give you the options and tools you need to maximize your personal and professional relationships.
