As a practical-strategist specializing in competitive strategy, I have the unique ability to translate strategy into execution and results by applying my breadth of experience in marketing, business development, international trade, sales operations and a 15 yr tech career in Silicon Valley.

I excel at rallying cross-functional collaboration and team-building to achieve a common goal. My passion to develop new markets and my competitive drive to win, coupled with my engaging and effective communication style, motivates others to also think creatively and act productively. Exceptional feedback on my leadership, coaching and instructor facilitation style for Stanford and Duke CE in Fortune500 workshops, reflects my capacity to inspire and mobilize change.
