I'm passionate about seeing people thrive at work, the 'professionalisation' of start-ups, and encouraging real conversations what's really going on in our companies. 

I'm a new-ish San Franciscan, long-time ATLien, medium-term Bostonian, and on-and-off New Yorker. You can generally find me exploring the West Coast, trying out every workout Classpass has to offer, maintaining a home full of plants, and learning the complex recycliing rules in San Francisco. 

Ongoing WORK

  • Training and development @ Bain: Helping our people and clients do their best work, at one of the world’s best places to work.

  • Supporting entrepreneurs: Drop-in support for operations, strategy, business and financial planning for start-ups and growing businesses (interested in learning more? Reach out!)

What I've worked on

  • Story-catching @ The Human Side of Scale: Working with Jess Goldfin to shine a light on the reality of what actually happens when a startup scales — beyond the metrics to the real experiences. We think people working in the startup community deserve better language and better tools to navigate growth, and are learning from their stories.
