Here are a few things I have done:
As one of the original team members at Fast Company magazine I helped design, develop and oversee our incredibly successful Live Events group. In this role, we brought the magazine to life in more ways than one. I reported directly to Founding Editor Alan Webber and had the incredible privilege of being part of that magazine's amazing growth story.
At Fortune magazine, I was the Director of Content and Development, and worked closely with the editorial team to develop the magazine's content into such successful conferences as the Fortune Global Forum, the Most Powerful Women's Summit and the Brainstorm series. I also worked on bringing the content to life as part of the Wall Street Week with Fortune television series on PBS.
At Goldman Sachs I was a Vice President in the Office of the Chairman and worked in the Partner Practices area. I helped design and execute specific development programs for the Partners of the firm.
Since going solo, I have worked on a vast variety of marketing and branding programs. For example, with Time magazine, I helped manage the Time 100 event, which celebrates and honors the 100 Most Influential People in the World. For an organization such as MasterCard International, I helped design and execute internal diversity programs.
I began my career (too long ago to share in polite company) as a management consultant at Renaissance Solutions where I learned and practiced the Balanced Scorecard approach with David Norton and at Nextera Enterprises where I supported mergers and acquisitions efforts.
I am a graduate of Wellesley College, Magna Cum Laude, with a B.A. in American Studies. Given enough time, I like to think I could be a championship boxer and banjo player - although not at the same time.
