"I’ve had the pleasure of climbing racks of steel in Pennsylvania, getting lost amongst giant reams of paper in Germany, and being covered in blue pigment in order to experience life on the shop floor of my clients."

About Me

What I Do

I am the Global Delivery Lead for two of our chemical clients in North America. In this role, I’m responsible for delivering value across our accounts, building strong client relationships, and providing on-going professional developmental opportunities for our people. For more than 15 years, I have had the privilege of working alongside Accenture’s best and brightest, many of whom I now consider life-long friends.


Day In My Life

My day starts with getting my son off to kindergarten. I cherish those brief moments when I get to see him shake the sleep off and I am there to help him get his day started. I usually take calls with my delivery teams in the morning on the way to the client site. Once there, I make it a priority to connect with the client, usually over lunch or coffee, and reserve an hour or two each day for mentoring and coaching my teams. No day is the same, and many times my plans are thrown off by fighting fires, but I make it a priority to dedicate extra time each day to my family, clients, and teams.

Outside the Office/Advice

Outside The Office

My most important titles are mom and wife. I live in Cincinnati and share a passion for sports with my husband, particularly the Cincinnati Reds and Bengals, which we are enthusiastically passing down to our five year old son.


My Advice

Focus on building your network and creating lasting relationships as a matter of daily routine, because no one gets to the top alone.
