I was sitting in a conference room listening to yet another man tell me what he wanted me to do, how I was going to do it, and why he was “just the leader I needed” to keep my energy and passion in check. For years, I’d been giving my vision, my energy, and my identity away. But the phrase on repeat in my head at that moment was…

Not one more minute, of one more hour, of one more day.”

What I’ve Done…

I was an excellent student, a reader of books, and a kid who plotted my escape plan to get away from chaos and abuse. So those words “Not one more minute, of one more hour, of one more day” were familiar.

For 20+ years I excelled in solving real customer problems as a Product Manager. I love working with smart people and building cool shit. Engineers, Designers, and other creatives have been my travel companions through startups, scaleups, and big tech.

Along the way I’ve been a Doula, gotten a couple Masters Degrees (MBA & MA Organizational Leadership), become a 2nd degree Reiki practitioner, and a facilitator for Working Genius.

What I Value…

Maya Angelou once said,

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.

I deeply value holding life loosely with humor and light. I believe it’s not worth living if you aren’t saying YES with a little bit of terror now and then. Having family that become friends and friends who become family makes the whole experience of living better. As does doing things that light you up, challenge you, and give you room to grow.

What I Want…

I want every person I interact with to feel free.

  • Free to speak their truth
  • Free to say “NO” to those who would try to control them
  • Free to say “YES” to every wild dream they can dream
  • Free to be unapologetically and uniquely themselves

And I want to help them get that freedom.

Sometimes that means making changes…big or small. Sometimes it means diving into old stories. Sometimes it means untangling the limiting beliefs that have gotten wrapped up in our minds and hearts.

I am  passionate about a few things including:

  • Helping women and men fight back or leave toxic work environments
  • Partnering with founders, CxOs, investors, and HR teams to build human-centered cultures where heart and health are at the core
  • Talking about the different seasons of female life and what they mean for our hearts, bodies, and spirits
  • Storytelling…through the written word, through coaching, through leadership development, through product management. It’s all a story…so let’s tell it well!

Focusing on what I love means I’m keeping the promise I made myself that day in the conference room. Every minute, hour, and day is spent in service to my values, passions, and people who seek me out.


I currently live in London, but work with clients in the USA, Europe, and Australia. I am unendingly curious, notoriously outspoken, a little broken, and a lot of fun. I drink strong coffee, prefer craft beer, red wine, and have expensive taste in brown liquors. My cat Malcolm is often featured on my Instagram and I read all the books I can get my hands on.
