About Me

My professional passion is to help create environments where people feel truly seen and are inspired to be their best, most authentic, and innovative selves. 

I believe that healthy human connections are the foundation for more joyful and meaningful work. I bring this belief to life as a purpose-driven leader with over 10 years of experience in:

  • Powerful, mission-led branding & communications 

  • Extensive employee training & development

  • High-impact DEI strategy & execution

In addition to my independent consultancy, I've co-founded and launched Liberation Labs with my friend and collaborator, Michael Gregor. We design and deliver equitable and joyful experiences for visionary organizations.

 

I'm also a Certified Diversity Professional (CDP)®, an active mental health advocate, love to cook, and have a background in (and lifelong love affair with!) the arts & fashion.
