Pro Tip


Deep expertise working with executives wanting to bridge industries (ex: tech titans wanting to go into philanthropy). Deep thinking on crafting individualized, yet standardized, systems to scale individual executives neurological processing into organizational ability to execute and excel operationally. Also, if anyone is working with executives dealing with federal or local policy or procurement, government expertise! Ditto crisis response (I'm a FEMA-trained emergency responder and led post-Katrina crisis comms construction and delivery.)
