Why I'm different
I'm a catalyst, devoted to finding solutions and exploring ideas. I work well with people - all kinds of people - because I like people, especially the difficult ones. And I'm good in a crisis, because I believe that a crisis is when you show who you really are.
But don't take my word for it - take the words of former colleagues, clients, and employers.
"Over the moon."
How an agency I work with described her client's reaction to the quality of the content I provided.
"Too valuable to lose."
How one of my CEOs once referred to me when discussing resource allocation.
"A conflict management dream."
How one of my supervisors described me after I turned a potentially heated stakeholder meeting into consensus and collaboration.
Work I've done
One of my great passions in life is to find opportunities that challenge me in all of my different skill sets. The work profiled below gives a good example of how I can provide complex, integrated solutions that provide value in multiple areas.
