At the start of my career, right as I was finishing my Master’s in Organizational Leadership, I thought I had it all figured out. I’d toil in the arena of leadership. I’d craft the next innovative leadership framework. And then I’d deliver that one in a million Ted Talk or perfectly timed speech that would launch a new book and theory.
Although a bit unrealistic, I knew early on that I loved speaking, telling stories, and creating initiatives centered on engrained cultural change. Then, at 22 something changed. I experienced sexual violence and by proxy, sexual harassment at work.
Coming to terms with my experiences left me feeling powerless. I decided no one else should ever feel that way.
I’ve researched, studied, and worked tirelessly in the fields of prevention, initially focused on sexual violence and harassment prevention. As times evolved, so did my research and work to the point that I found this new purpose.
The idea that everyone needs to feel safe.
In our relationships, in our organizations, and in our communities. People crave safety.
And they deserve it.
Today, I help organizations create safe environments. Through a researched and tested framework, I help organizations build cultures that move beyond compliance and emphasize humanity. Through harassment and violence prevention, I build safer organizations. And I empower people to use tools that allow them to exist in safer cultures.
My clients span the Fortune 1000 and a variety of industries unified by the desire to create safer, harassment and violence-free organizations. Over 300 companies, universities, and installations across the world including FMC Corporation, Solenis, the United States Air Force, members of Congress, and beyond have partnered with my work. I am trusted by HR Executives, squadron commanders, Title IX Directors, and VSPAs to make complex topics approachable.
