Buttressing my coaching practice is a professional, managerial, and executive leadership career spanning more than three decades in government, business, and public policy.

As an executive with the Business Roundtable, an association of CEOs of leading U.S. companies, I instructed corporate leaders on numerous engagement efforts that successfully achieved the organization's strategic objectives.
While working on Capitol Hill, I served as a staff leader for two key committees. As Chief of Staff to the House Rules Committee, I led a 25-person staff, and advised Congressional leaders and committee chairs on the development and execution of successful strategies that advanced the majority party's agenda. As Deputy Minority Staff Director for the House Financial Services Committee, I worked as a team leader of staff professionals responsible for press operations, speech-writing and strategic planning during consideration of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
I completed George Mason University's professional training program in Leadership Coaching for Organizational Performance, and I am a graduate of Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science degree in political science and George Mason University with a Master of Arts degree in economics.
