Professional Background

Professional Experience

Over the last 20 years, I have spent my time working in organizations that support the public at large as a public servant or advocate. My experience spans from lead to executive levels. Many of my daily responsibilities include mediation, negotiation, arbitration, training and business consulting and development with internal and external clients both for-profit and nonprofit organizations. I am a strategic thinker with a proven track record of developing and implementing effective plans, establishing strategic alliances, and building solid relationships built on respect and integrity. My unique combination of education and professional experiences have proved to be beneficial to clients in all sorts of disputes as it has allowed me to be relatable, empathetic, and a strong problem-solver finding solutions in even the most difficult of circumstances. I don’t just resolve conflict, I engage in it and help you obliterate it.
