Talent Management With A Focus On Empathy

I help leaders strengthen how they use empathy as a powerful tool to impact their teams and increase employee engagement.

I help leaders increase their capabilities and help organizations design programs and toolkits and facilitate workshops. I enjoy using my talent management experiences gleaned at Fortune 500 companies such as Starbucks, FileNet (a division of IBM) and J.D. Edwards (now Oracle) to shape the leadership landscape of the future.

Along with helping clients accelerate leader development, I also teach at UCLA Extension and University of CA, Irvine Division of Continuing Education.

A transplant who adopted the Pacific Northwest as home, I fuel my love of travel by exploring new destinations and spending time in Southern California enjoying the sunshine.
