What did you do before joining McChrystal Group?

Prior to joining McChrystal Group, I was a Senior Talent Management Consultant with a mid-size insurance and annuities firm. A seasoned thought leader, content developer, and facilitator, my focus was on building sustainable leadership competencies at all levels in the organization. I served as a coach to managers and senior executives as well as an internal consultant and mentor to staff and management on issues related to individual leadership development, diversity, equity, inclusion, and well-being. In the ten years preceding, I was a psychology professor at three institutions of higher education, specializing in personality, psychopathology, lifespan development, and gender. I also worked for two behavioral health organizations as a psychotherapist, delivering both inpatient and outpatient counseling on an individual and group basis.

Why did you join McChrystal Group?

I joined McChrystal Group for the opportunity to work in a dynamic environment with some of the most brilliant and talented people in the world who are leading the way to build more sustainable, inclusive, and purpose-driven organizations.

What has been your proudest moment at McChrystal Group?

My second day on the job, I was asked to join a global leaders' forum to discuss my take on building psychological safety in the workplace. It was a such a privilege!

What is a hidden talent of yours?

Most people don't know that I have a background in performance art, having acted on both the stage and screen.
