"... Problems create our courage and our wisdom ... through the pain of confronting and resolving problems, we learn.”

~ M. Scott Peck, The Road Less Traveled


I started my career as a consultant in Information Technology after earning a bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems from Bentley University.  While working full-time, I pursued a master’s degree in Business Administration from Bryant University. My leadership skills led me to dedicate more than twenty years to corporate America as a technology change manager. This business experience taught me how to help individuals, teams and organizations adapt to changes in the workplace.  I mastered the technical, organizational, and communication skills necessary to successfully implement desired changes in people, business processes and computer systems.

Within that same twenty year timeframe, I managed to live through a decade of personal change.  I’m a fourteen year breast cancer survivor whose mom and sister passed away from complications of having the same disease. When my employer eliminated my job position, I seized the opportunity to satisfy my long-forgotten goal to write a book. I never imagined that my life would be the book’s topic.  The experience of writing my story uncovered my life’s purpose --- to serve as an example of resilience in a world full of inevitable change

My mission is to help individuals, teams, and organizations embrace change as an opportunity to learn! I help clients navigate through change by discovering new ways to look at a challenging situation or problem, create options and solutions they may not have thought of alone, and move forward with confidence, courage, and peace.  I have chosen to achieve my mission through consulting, coaching, and writing.

My memoir, Perfectly Negative: How I Learned to Embrace Life’s Lemons (as) Lessons is available on Amazon.com.

I live in Rhode Island (USA) with my husband, two step-teens, and a Shih Tzu named Enzo who follows me everywhere.
