I have experience working as an internal and external consultant. My present position is Executive Consultant at PDI Ninth House, which is a global leadership development consulting firm. In my role, I focus primarily on leadership assessment, development, and executive coaching for senior leaders across a broad range of organizations. Prior to PDI Ninth House, I worked for two global professional services firms (KPMG and Marsh and McLennan) in internal leadership development and program management roles. At Marsh - I was the global manager for the firm's accelerated leadership development strategy, which included the development of a customized leadership development program experience in Asia Pac.
