I am a Chicago native with 17 years of experience in marketing and sales. I started my career with 6 years in Account Management at Leo Burnett Advertising in Chicago. In the 11 years that followed at Time Inc. in Chicago and San Francisco, I held management positions within both the Corporate Sales Division and FORTUNE Magazine, where I received national recognition for my sales and leadership achievements.
My passion for inspiring people to exceed their own expectations led me to coaching in 2003. I am certified as a professional coach through The Coaches Training Institute in San Rafael, CA and am a member of the International Coach Federation.
I have done executive coaching/training work with companies including American Express, CNET Networks, Gap Inc., Merrill Lynch, Sonic Drive-Ins, Time Inc., and Ziff Davis. I also have coached individuals from such companies as AOL, Banana Republic, Blanc & Otus, CBS, Deutsch, FAO Schwartz, Franklin Templeton, Hill Holliday, Morgan Stanley, Neuberger Berman, Oracle and Sideman & Bancroft LLP.
I received a BA degree in Economics from Northwestern University, where I graduated Phi Beta Kappa. I reside in San Francisco and coach/train internationally.
