Experience: 20 Years
Location: Washington, DC


Marketing and strategy executive consultant with a passion for building brands, products and experiences. Experience working in start-ups, Fortune 500 companies, B2C and B2B businesses. Ability to understand how to propel business forward by not only developing your business and marketing strategies, but also ensuring the successful execution of those efforts.  

My cross-industry, cross-functional experience gives me a unique perspective on what it takes to drive growth and realize change. Having worked as a marketing executive and external consultant, strategist and project implementation lead, I understand how to align the strategy and implementation from project inception to the desired outcome. And as a former marketing researcher, I intimately understand the importance of truly understanding the needs, frustrations and motivations of an audience to craft the right strategy. It drives everything I do.

I take the time to fully understand all aspects of your business. I build a plan based on this knowledge to ensure that we are tackling most important problems in a way that is feasible and effective within your company. I don’t just implement. I see what sticks. I adjust when it doesn’t. I take that learning to help determine how to do it better.
