After nine years in marketing for GlaxoSmithKline, I jumped into consulting with a boutique firm, where I rose to partner. I then co-founded Ascendant Consulting and focused the practice on helping large corporations enter new markets.
Soon thereafter, I created a “general contractor” model in which my role was to win engagements, ensure quality and manage relationships, while subcontracting the lion’s share of the subject-matter expert work.
That transition sparked a deep, ongoing study of how to construct and sell consulting projects for maximum value.
For the record, I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Carnegie Mellon. (Go plaid!) I’m a hockey fanatic and eat egregious amounts of chocolate.Contact Us
I have been in consulting for 15 years, have sold millions of dollars of projects and have coached and advised thousands of people. (Yes, thousands!) During the last ten years, my practice was run as a Solo Practice, so I know what it is to build, nurture and grow a practice.
I am also a huge believer in our firm’s IP and can attest to its effectiveness, its practicality and its utility, as these ideas and practices are what I have used throughout my career.
On the personal side, I grew up outside of Chicago and moved to Washington State 25 years ago. I love music, love living outside of Seattle, WA, and love hiking the 90 acres of woods that surround our home. I also love to read and write and co-authored a book on creativity that is in search of a publisher. I also have a long-standing interest in the Contemplative Traditions of the world.Contact Us
