I help people sort through their ideas to find clarity and direction. Creative consulting, individual coaching, authoring, ghostwriting, editing—these are just a few of the routes I use to help people shape ideas, content, and products before sending them out into the world.
My clients strive to think deeply and act creatively. They value thoughtfulness, bravery, exploration, and excellence.
Who are these incredible people? They’re thought leaders, celebrities, Nobel Prize winners, and everyday extraordinary people. They’re passionate, opinionated, and full of compelling stories. Whether I’m delivering a keynote on leadership, ghostwriting a book, or coaching a professional through a time of transition, my focus is on solutions, movement, and growth.
My background includes serving as the long-time ghostwriter for a Nobel Prize winner in medicine and executive editor of Sam’s Club’s Healthy Living Made Simple, a publication that reaches around 11 million readers. Along with my writing and consulting work, I’m the founder of Nonfiction Book School, an accelerated author program. I’ve trained leaders from Starbucks, The Boeing Company, Intuit, and more. My newest bestselling book, cowritten with Ron Price, is Growing Influence: A Story of How to Lead with Character, Expertise, and Impact.
I’ve spent much of my adult life exploring the world, including living in the Dominican Republic, Vietnam, and my current home of Portugal. Experiences like hiking Ta Kou Mountain to see the reclining Buddha in Mui Ne, Vietnam; being robbed at gunpoint in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; and most recently, tobogganing at the Great Wall of China, all shaped who I am and how I work. Spending time in different cultures has helped me develop an openness and ability to understand varied viewpoints, allowing me to connect authentically with people across the globe.
Outside of doing meaningful work I love, I’m a runner, adventure-seeker, wife, and mom to two awesome kids.
