Pro Tip

Make sure your executive knows you COULD do their job, but 100% don’t WANT to.


Mad skillz? But seriously, I’ve had what they now call a “portfolio career” beginning with being a professional stage manager and prop designer, becoming a marketing executive, leading the strategy for the 2020 Census integrated communications campaign, to choosing to down shift and now being a chief of staff for BAV Group. I bring a rather odd set of skills and experience that have translated into a very successful life and career that I’m happy to share.


Building relationships with other Chiefs of Staff. Expanding skills. Tapping into a powerful network.
