Be the change that you want to see in the world.

Mahatma Gandhi

I am passionate about

  • Empowering leaders to thrive.
  • Developing and fulfilling on visions.
  • Bringing unity and clarity to teams who can then produce unimaginable results.

What makes me whole

  • Spending time with my husband and three children and grandson. 
  • Traveling to places where the sun warms me! Cruising is also great so I can see and experience many places in a short amount of time.
  • Running, practicing yoga, paddle boarding, boating and fishing, playing the piano or painting (with wine, course!).
  • Grilling during the summer – and even stretching it out into the Minnesota winter! I love to try new recipes and my family are willing guinea pigs!

My Prior Professional Endeavors

  • I managed the BDO USA Minneapolis consulting group and implemented their middle market financial software service methodology and their customer relationship management software.
  • I also directed the national sales and marketing efforts of the package solutions group at BDO.
  • Prior to BDO, I was the National Sales Manager for State of the Art, Inc. (now known as Sage Software, Inc.), where I was responsible for financial systems sales, CPA programs, marketing communications and recruitment, and channel communications.
