Is this you?

You’ve already got a too-full plate at work … and you just got handed a new project.

Oh yeah, they need it yesterday.

Or maybe there’s that looming project you’ve been meaning to start, but just haven’t had time.

You’re trying to manage your day-to-day responsibilities, but this “one more thing” my drive you to take a bat to your computer.

I can help. Give me your one more thing. And while you’re at it, put down the bat.

I’ll tackle your project and deliver results that make you shine.

Here’s How I’ve helped busy people just like you:

  • Internal communications. Developed an employee engagement survey and analyzed the results for a national healthcare system (and increased survey participation by 70 percent).

  • Reporting. Researched and developed a feasibility report for a global nonprofit to help them assess and manage their language translation needs.

  • Research. Developed an assessment tool to evaluate companies’ family-friendly policies for a major U.S. city.

  • Crisis Communications. Created a crisis communications plan — mid-crisis — for a regional property management company that helped flip the narrative.

Why me_ (2).png

I am a creative, big picture thinker. A solid writer and editor. I’m calm under pressure and I love a challenge.

I know how to listen, and I am passionate about helping people solve problems.

And … I have more than 20 years of experience managing teams, navigating internal politics, collaborating with partners (internal and external) and launching and managing national campaigns. (You can read more about my experience here.)

But most importantly, I’ve been exactly where you are. I understand the pressure of needing to get that one more thing done and stressing about how in the world to do it all.

I’d love to work with you.

First step? Call, text, email or send a carrier pigeon.

Then take a deep breath.

We’ve got this.
