In the past four years, I’ve co-led, designed, and facilitated 20+ large-scale transformation initiatives to develop achievable long-term strategies addressing organizational opportunities and challenges (e.g. internal growth, market competition, user experience) for clients in healthcare, higher education, culture, and the public sector.

Facilitated extensive stakeholder engagements, interacting with thousands of individuals through meetings, workshops, focus groups, interviews, and surveys to unearth needs and identify achievable solutions for organizational change. 2016-2020.
