How I can help you

It may not be the best time to start a new business, but with thoughtful planning it could be and it's definitely a great time to figure out how to stay in business. I became CEO months before the start of the 2008 recession. Leading through crisis is challenging and stressful! I'm happy to be a sounding board or talk through business concerns you have. With experience in finance, operations and strategic planning, I ask probing questions that can help you sort through competing demands while ensuring time to pull back and take a 10,000 foot view. Or maybe it is time to start a business or develop plans so you're ready when circumstances change. As a woman in Corporate America, Ive experienced the challenge of being in the minority. And Im passionate about supporting minority-owned and operated businesses in the Twin Cities, a much needed component to addressing the racial inequity that exists today. I particularly enjoy leadership challenges, organizational development and complex problem solving. Much more a generalist than specialist, my experience encompasses industrial, healthcare and telecommunications industries; North America, Europe and Asia; developing, mature and turn-around stages of business. Please don't hesitate to call!
