I'm passionate about motivating and empowering individuals to leverage their unique strengths to excel during every phase of their lives.
In my first career at Kemps, I managed a P&L for 29 of my 30 years. I was highly-focused on developing a common-sense financial acumen and an efficient approach to achieve results.
As I began to reflect on my career, I recognized that the most fulfilling part of my long tenure with the company was the deep personal relationships I developed with colleagues and customers. It was there that my passion for coaching, developing talent, and improving organizational dynamics emerged.
In 2014 I turned that experience into a full-time role in organizational development and coaching with the Astrup Companies. Over the past five-plus years, I have guided, advised, and assisted the company through a significant period of transition: shifting company leadership from the second generation of family ownership to the third; developing and placing a new executive management team; and completing business acquisitions and closures—all while achieving significant business growth.
The culmination of my experiences at Astrup’s and Kemps is the launch of Business Genetics, a consulting and coaching business with three primary areas of focus: emerging leaders, family businesses in transition and baby boomers transitioning into retirement.
