My story

NOTE: I can easily function as a round peg, if you like, but then you'd be missing out on the broad and deep competencies that an award-winning hybrid delivers. I'm known as a quick study with boundless energy, simultaneously creative and analytical— proven to perform many functions beyond my assigned job title across sectors.


I am an Educator & Change Agent, Consumer Affairs/ Customer Service maven & revenue-driven Brand Marketer with robust Client Services & Creative Services expertise— all integral to business and nonprofit development.

I excel at Daily Operations and creating a flexible structure for fast-paced environments, especially sales-driven and service-oriented organizations where Communication and Education are critical to meeting the needs of staff and those served.

I Get Things Done

Equally comfortable in the boardroom or under-served neighborhoods, I help people and organizations negotiate issues to achieve their definition of success.

Founder of a grassroots community partnership and student government, I enabled the turnaround of a NYC elementary school. LIKEWISE, I transitioned a Marketing Services team at Bookspan to a new Creative Services Agency and landed Panasonic as an account, all within 6 weeks.

Making a Difference

From Organization Development or Job Skills Training to Brand Marketing and Customer Service Management or Youth Leadership Development, I enable confident, strategic and pro-active results long after my departure. I motivate individuals to attain personal excellence.


Totally passionate about horticulture and landscape design, I use my Master Gardener Training & years of hands-on experience to develop residential gardens and landscapes. There is not a day that I'm not tending a garden somewhere, as the creative problem-solving process is exhilarating!
