I get sh*t done and have the energy of four people. My goal is to create fundamental change in People Operations. As Head of Learning and Organizational Development at Quartet Health, I help empower organizational culture to be inclusive, diverse, and promote equity for all employees.
As Co-Founder of The Rise Journey (www.therisejourney.com), I work with growth stage companies designing and implementing strategies to build cohesive teams while developing a sustainable organizational culture. I put theoretical People Ops ideas into scalable best practices.
As a no BS kind of person, I’m focused on hands on engagement, real world experiences, and communicating successes and struggles in personal and professional realms. My talks and workshops are engaging, transparent, and relatable, with action-oriented takeaways.
Focus areas include:
Invisible disability advocacy
Diversity recruitment and engagement strategies
Attracting, Retaining, and Engaging with Women in tech
No BS, safe space workshop at the intersection of Imposter Syndrome, owning strengths and achievements, and forward career momentum.
