I have built a decade-long career working with senior executives and entrepreneurs leading their organizations through times of tumult and change. I am the founder of Turquoise, a creative leadership consultancy that works at the intersection of leadership training, executive coaching, work culture transformation, and organizational design all in service of igniting meaningful impact. I also work as an executive coach with CHIEF, a global organization that supports women executives to lead powerfully.

Prior to launching Turquoise, I served as Executive Director for Google’s 30 Weeks, a business incubator that transformed professionals into founders by equipping them with the entrepreneurial skills, knowledge, and tech know-how to create products and launch impactful companies. 30 Weeks was named by Fast Company in 2015 as one of the Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Design.

I have spoken on leadership, innovation, building startups, and transformative change at Fast Company’s Innovation Festival, Harvard Social Enterprise Conference, HarvardxDesign, the Social Good Summit, The Next Web, Clinton Global Initiative University, the Disruptive Innovation Festival, and many other events.
