CoS leader with 15+ years of experience driving large-scale organizational and strategic transformations across multiple industries and functions from life sciences, technology, venture capital to government and real estate development. I have supported executives through various business lifecycle stages - such as venture creations, fundraising rounds, IPOs, and clinical trials.

I am a problem solver and take great pride in being a trusted source of dependability, treating people with respect and empathy, and understand the hard work to drive meaningful outcomes. I am passionate about building and enabling cultures and teams to achieve their full potential through a foundation of trust, flexibility, and inclusivity. I am a leader who maintains sound judgment, a strong moral compass, and an even-keeled temperament during times of crisis.

Looking forward to connecting!
