Insight . Perspective . Experience.
As the CEO & Founder of East Tenth Group, I leverage 25 years of business and experience as a strategic advisor and executive coach who helps drive actionable people solutions and provides practical insights on business strategy to senior leaders. My team and I are fiercely committed to the development and growth of people and companies because we believe that when people thrive, business thrives.
My expertise comes from a breadth of experience leading HR across many prestigious companies and serving on executive teams. Now, I advise and coach CEOs and senior level executives to create company cultures that sustain deep engagement and produce incremental results of growth enterprises and middle market companies. I partner to strengthen leadership capabilities, operational excellence, executive presence and confidence in navigating organizational nuances and Board relations.
My no-nonsense, direct approach gets right to the core of your issues. As many executives say, I do not waste their time – we get down to the “business of business” and solve the most pressing issues. I have found with the complexities of today’s environment, being thoughtful, deeply insightful and forthright is necessary to elevate top leaders’ games to gain the competitive edge for tomorrow.
In 2014, I founded the movement, The Truth Behind Our Titles® ~ Strength, Resilience and Hope for the Professional Journey. It shifts the belief that professional success means hiding or disguising your inner struggles and difficulties. Instead, I encourage you to embrace all of your experiences—even difficulties—to integrate yourself fully and more authentically in your professional life.
I received an MBA in HR Management and HR Systems from the University of Albany and an Executive Coaching Certificate from City University of New York’s Zicklin School of Business. I also hold a BS in Music Education/Piano from the College of St. Rose where I am honored to be a distinguished, prominent alumna. I was awarded the Certificate in Entrepreneurship upon completing the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Program.
I serve as a Stability Leader for The Stability Network, am a Coach for Chief, and a Senior Fellow of The Sierra Institute. I am a Board Director for danker, a privately held middle market company and hold a membership with the National Association of Corporate Directors. I live with my husband Joe and our Bernese Mountain dog Zoey in Westchester County.
