"Good things happen to people who wait, but better things come to those who go out and get them."


I’m an organizational leader, board director, and executive leadership coach with a strong affinity for people and purpose-driven work.

Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to work with extremely talented teams in a number of contexts – initially as a chemical engineer, then as an employment law and human resources attorney, and more recently as general counsel and three-time president & CEO. I continue to guide a combination of privately held, corporate, and nonprofit organizations as board director and advisor.

Thoughtful Business Partner

A priority throughout my career has been the creation of inclusive and respectful environments for participation, collaboration, innovation, and creativity (we are simply better problem solvers when working together in unison). In addition to this, I have a strong bias for action which is reflected in the consistent results that my teams have delivered over the years.

Highly Experienced President/CEO in a Breadth of Industries

I try to bring an enlightened perspective to board dynamics based on my strong strategic, operational and legal acumen along with my ability to make insightful connections and a bias for action.

My career as a chemical engineer, labor employment, and human resources attorney as well as general counsel to a publicly-traded multinational corporation has allowed me so much experience in a breadth of industries. I have helped to challenge entrenched practices and strengthened culture while serving as Board Director, Board Chair, and Advisor for a combination of eight distinct private sector corporate and nonprofit organizations.
