Strategic Thinking

Many projects I have worked on have required a rounded and strategic focus in order to achieve success or forward movement. 

Adapter of Technology

I believe to stay current with trends one must adapt to the latest forms of technology.  For the role of Digital Media and Clean Tech this is vital as the platforms are always changing.    Some of my latest adaptations are to:  

Excellent Prospecting Skills

My approach to prospecting is through a multitude of methods primarily cold-calling and networking, but also through some excellent sites including:  

Strong Relationship Building and Networking Skills

I believe that relationships are formed in a variety of ways, but my favorite is through networking. When you are in front of a person you are often told more than through a phone call. I believe through networking a relationship is built faster and makes it stronger and more committed. It holds you accountable.

International Travel, Photography,

Currently I am a Big Sister with the Big Sister Organization out of Boston.  My committment to my little sister has brought me a lot of happiness and memories but most importantly a positive impact on her life.


Conducting business in a global environment requires excellent listening, relationship, reasoning, critical thinking and problem solving skills.  My experience working within both Government and Private sector has taught me when to listen, when to engage, and when to bring relationships together to close deals or collaborate resulting at a minimum of a forward moving transaction or achieving a success.

These experiences have given me the insight and the drive to perform always with the client's best interest at heart and always with the organizations strategy or mission in consideration. 

My ability to be inquiring, strategic, resourceful, innovative, and dynamic has led me to pursue opportunities requiring challenge, great resourcefulness, an innovative mind, and most importantly, ones that will build long lasting relationships.
