Perceptive . Business Focused. Results Driven.
I am a former Fortune 500 senior executive, and now leadership advisor and executive coach. I apply this blue-chip business background to coach leaders and managers on how to perform at their highest potential. I believe everyone can leverage their natural talents and personality for business success by using principles of clear communication, effective collaboration, enhanced relationships, active listening and compassionate leadership.
I began my career as an Institutional Fixed Income salesperson, and for 10+ years specialized in selling high-grade debt for Merrill Lynch. My passion for developing talent led to a subsequent career leading the Learning and Development (L&D) divisions of JPMorgan, Citigroup and Lehman Brothers. I understand the challenges of heading geographically dispersed teams, managing complex technologies/ systems, merging divisions and motivating staff to become highly effective.
In the span of five years, I merged the L&D divisions for three separate investment bank acquisitions: Salomon/Smith Barney, Salomon SmithBarney/Citibank and JPMorgan/Chase. Downsizing, restructuring and creating merger synergies have allowed me to develop keen insight into change management practices.
An additional area of my expertise involves coaching high-potential women in highly competitive industries. I bring a unique perspective to these assignments because of my own, previous success and familiarity with issues that affect women in the workplace.
I hold a MEd from New York University and earned my BA from Drew University. I received my certification in Executive Coaching from iCoachNY and the Zicklin School of Business, Baruch College. I am certified in Hogan, Workplace Big Five, DiSC, MBTI, and EQ-i/360 and also work with DiSC and the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument. I am a member of the Financial Women’s Association and the NYHRPS. I divide my time between New York City and Litchfield, CT with my husband.
