Executive Speech Coach and Trainer
After 20 years in PR, communications and marketing roles in agency and corporate settings, I decided to shift gears and dedicate my career to coaching. Using my expertise in personal brand and my a background in leadership communications, I work with my clients to tell their stories in an authentic, yet compelling way — building reputation and boosting credibility.
I spent more than a decade at Cardinal Health in marketing and communications roles. Recognizing the gender gap in pharmacy ownership, I founded Cardinal Health Women in Pharmacy, which grew from a grassroots initiative for pharmacy students to a nationally recognized program featured at the 2014 United Nations International Women’s Day forum. (Best day ever!) I also led Cardinal’s internal communications team, providing counsel to senior leadership and driving companywide communication to 34,000 employees worldwide.
Before joining Cardinal Health, I was vice president at Dix & Eaton, a communications consultancy, where I specialized in CEO communication and employee engagement.
I started my career at NCR Corporation in my hometown of Dayton, Ohio. I am accredited through the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) and was awarded the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association Rising Star award.
A graduate of the Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University, I am a certified Birkman® coach, and I completed The Gallup Organization’s Great Manager training program. I live with my husband and two children in Columbus, Ohio, where I volunteer with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Association and will serve as an a Chapter Chair for the Women Presidents Organization.
