I have spent almost two decades as a woman of color in leadership. I’ve learned how to manage up, down and sideways, build teams from scratch, and inherit teams to make them peak performing. My career has spanned across for-profit institutions in advertising, marketing and television, as well as working in political institutions in Washington DC, Maryland, and Ohio.
It was the decade plus I spent working on Democratic campaigns that gave me the most experience. It was in these high pressure, results driven environments that I truly learned what it would take to create a high performing team and make it thrive in a short period of time. I’ve had the experience of working with teams in national and statewide non-profits, including the ACLU and Wellstone Action, and have worked in for-profit companies like Fox and Lee Wayne Corporation. In every environment I have created opportunities to achieve high team goals, create space to include individuals from diverse backgrounds (and advocate for their presence on team), while also diligently establishing environments where high stakes conversations can occur. It is this experience that I bring to my work with teams and in my work with individuals who are looking to make an impact in their organization and their community.
Over the years I have learned from my successes and my mistakes. I have seen first hand what makes a high performing team function and what holds it back. I’ve also seen the importance of having team members who are passionate about their work and who also feel fully invested in by their organization. So if you are the manager or leader of a team who is looking to increase results, or if you are a woman who’s looking to find passion again for what you do, give me a call! I would love to work with you to create your results!
