About:

It is my passion to support our partners and clients by involving all associates – from the executive suite to the front line – in exploring their undiscovered and unrealized potential. I help Illinois organizations plan for and implement actions that drive growth through enterprise excellence, leading the way to their competitive future.

With more than 17 years of experience leading sustainable, enterprise-wide lean transformations and continuous process improvements – both domestically and internationally – I serve as a facilitator, creating a unified culture of ownership and accountability, deploying strategic business plans and achieving break-through outcomes.

As Benjamin Franklin says “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”
