Through my strategy and innovation consulting firm, I am a teacher, coach, and mentor for new and established specialists, managers, and executives. I advise clients in the social sector, mobile technology, life sciences, professional services, retail, and entertainment.

Altogether, I have been a career advisor to graduates of undergraduate, MBA, MA, MS, and PhD programs over the past twenty years. I help people build relationships with colleagues, establish credibility with supervisors and subordinates, explore and evaluate options for new positions, adjust to new working cultures (especially for those who have moved to America), prepare for new roles, and transition to new careers.
My background includes an MBA in Strategy, Marketing, and Entrepreneurship from the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business; 15+ years of consulting on marketing projects for clients; a prior role as a marketing communications specialist for PricewaterhouseCoopers; and the design and launch of new corporate identities for several clients.

I have been using Windows since the early versions, through Windows 95 and 98, through the transitions to Windows Vista and Windows 7, and on to the present version of Windows 10. I developed skills through professional assignments plus PricewaterhouseCoopers' intensive Management of Information Technology program. I am comfortable using Windows and Office for an individual PC. I am not experienced in building networked environments such as NT or Home Server. In short, while I don't implement Windows across organizations, I can help people who want to use Windows in everyday personal or business life.
