What I'm all About.

I have 15+ years working with summer camps and mission-driven organizations
as an Operations and HR professional. Let's get started:
1

Planning + Debrief

It is critical to begin a season, project, or initiative with SMART goals in mind, and just as important to pull your team together at the end to examine what worked, what could be improved, and identify opportunities for future success.
2

(In)Experienced Managers

Building competencies for young and/or inexperienced supervisors is one of the highest ROI actions your organization can take. I have extensive experience in developing evaluation resources, individualized coaching, and training around “difficult conversations.”
3

Training + Onboarding

Setting up your team for a good start with the correct knowledge, attitude, and behaviors to deliver excellent service is vital to your success. Organization-wide or individualized, let’s partner to identify clear expectations and manage towards them.

Culture of Communication

Unifying your team around a common message is often a challenge when we haven’t first developed a common vocabulary and shared outcomes. Employee Engagement is but one metric of success as we define and transform your teams.
