"Curiosity will conquer fear more than bravery will."
James Stephenson

Inspirational Speaker and Author


As a global C-suite executive, board director, and transformation leader, I bring nearly 30 years of experience in the Consumer Products and Hospitality industries with Fortune 500 companies. In my roles as Chief Procurement Officer and supply chain expert, I’ve executed global strategies, led transformative initiatives, and built global teams.

Sourcing and supply chain are not just operational necessities but strategic assets to an organization, a principle I’ve upheld in managing global strategic sourcing for renowned brands, and overseeing substantial operating expenses at Carnival Corporation & Plc. My efforts have consistently driven business turnarounds, operational innovations, and delivered billions in cost reductions and profit increases.

My expertise in anticipating new trends has enabled proactive, strategic decision-making. As a persuasive presenter, mentor, and collaborator, I am an advocate for curiosity, courage, and confidence. Appointed as an independent director at Shutterfly and Molson Coors Beverage Company, I am excited to contribute my expertise to these esteemed boards.
