Above all, I am a pragmatist.
I have intensive, real-world training combined with a realistic vision of how much more fulfilled we can become as individuals, communities, and a planet if we evolve the way we work. And I have seen how women are uniquely motivated to drive change that will ultimately benefit everyone.
I have advised hundreds of business leaders through my work as an executive search consultant on Wall Street, in Silicon Valley, and for companies of all sizes across industries around the world. As the co-founder and former co-CEO of a sustainable fashion business, Weve, I also understand the unique challenges facing entrepreneurs.
I began my career at Heidrick & Struggles, the global executive search firm, where I spent significant time in the Private Equity and Financial Services verticals as well as the Chief Financial Officer, General Counsel and public company Board of Director practices. I was then recruited to Google as part of an initiative to evolve the company's internal executive search function. I advised several of Google's senior leaders, including country managers and heads of various platforms, on how to assess and select the most effective team members. I also trained with one of Google's most senior executive coaches, and I continue to learn from him today.
Most recently, I oversaw all of the executive search teams as Director of Operations at Y Scouts, a purpose-driven executive search firm focused on connecting mission-aligned leaders to work that matters. There I managed, coached and developed an internal team of leadership search advisors while continuing to serve external clients.
I have a BA in English from the University of Notre Dame. I am also a certified Kundalini Yoga instructor and study under my teacher, Guru Jagat. It's impossible to excel at work in this high-pressure age of information overload without some kind of disciplined system of care for our mental, physical and emotional health. Kundalini Yoga is the most effective method I have found. I welcome the opportunity to incorporate this meditative technique into my advisory work for those who are curious about it.
I split my time between Los Angeles and Grand Cayman and work with women all over the world.
