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?
