With more than 20 years of experience in strategic people and organizational development, I help businesses grow through its team members, best-in-class talent management programs, transformational organizational design, and diversity, equity, and inclusion programs. A global thought leader on redefining the leadership model, I frequently write about courageous leadership, vulnerability, and changing the leadership dynamic to be one based on heart-centered and compassionate principles.
Before joining NVA, I held positions across many different industries, including manufacturing, telecommunications, professional services, e-commerce, and consulting. Prior to working in the HR field, I also worked in advertising and communications. Most recently, as their Chief People & Diversity Officer, I helped SmileDirect, in their journey from pre-IPO to a public company. Throughout my career, I have long advocated for inclusion, diversity and belonging, believing that an environment based on empathy, compassion and enabling all to bring their full selves to work builds a strong culture and community. When not out supporting the teams, I live in Nashville, Tennessee, with my three daughters and our two dogs.
