my story

My passion for effective, impactful communication is evident in my role as a Senior Trainer at 2Connect. As an innovator in workplace communication, I am committed to helping groups become experts at crafting fabulous content from complex information. In my time as a facilitator for Design Thinking, Creative Problem Solving and Design Sprints curriculum, I helped industry leaders learn to distill their message and think outside the box. My early career as an Intellectual Property lawyer challenged me to translate confusing legal arguments for diverse audiences and taught me the value of clear communication, which continues to serve me in my role with 2Connect.

EDUCATION

  • BS in Chemical Engineering from University at Buffalo

Favorite city your work with 2Connect has taken you?

I would have to say Chicago. I love the energy of the big city and the kindness of the Midwest.

Tell a story about something that makes you laugh.

When my friend and I visited a church in Florence, we had to wear large blue tents over our clothes because our modest tank tops were too revealing because our shoulders were exposed.

What is your hidden talent?

I have a very sensitive sense of smell which is an advantage when tasting food and wine, but works against me when living with three boys.

What is your favorite food?

Any and all street food from Shanghai.
