What skills and expertise do you bring to the team?
I am passionate about excellent communication in complex situations and keeping stakeholders informed and aligned along the way. Whether it’s a high-profile brand launch, a market-facing event, or creating line-of-sight and engagement around company strategy I keep teams aligned and engaged — and have a fun along the way.
What do you find most rewarding about your work?
I love the clients and teams we work with — honestly, it’s the people. Working in changing industries such as high tech, bio tech and ecommerce, I find myself constantly surrounded by incredibly smart and conscientious teams and individuals.
How long have you been at Blue Beyond?
Coming up on 9 years!
What is your favorite time of the year? Why?
Summer. Hands down. Growing up in a beach town I’ve always had a “thing” for summers — I love being outside, the heat, and the sense of freedom and traditions that come with the summer months.
How would you describe your co-workers?
Conscientious, talented and caring individuals — who care about themselves, their families, and our network of clients and companies.
How does good consulting happen?
It starts and ends with listening and empathy — you have to have a keen sense for listening closely to the needs of a client and understanding the context of a particular situation.
What’s your favorite place?
South Carolina. I live in the Bay Area (which I also call home), but my other ‘home’ is in the great tourist town of Myrtle Beach where I grew up. The weather is hot and beautiful in the summer, sleepy and cool in the winter and is fantastic ‘flip side’ to life in Silicon Valley.
