My Story


I always wanted to serve people. This value – service – has been at the heart of my decision making from the very beginning of my career. It led me to teaching eager 11th and 12th graders, to working with community centers and other mission-driven organizations, and now, to working with you.

An educator at heart, I have worked in a variety of school settings — public, charter, independent — and have explored various roles within mission-driven businesses and organizations. I have worked with non- and for- profit organizations, under-served and affluent organizations, and emerging, established, and mature organizations. Through these experiences, I crafted my refreshing, non-traditional



approach to help you overcome your mission-driven business or organization’s unique challenges. Whether you are an emerging business or a veteran in the industry, I am here to help you level up your organization.

Together, we can better serve you and your community, reach goals, and solve challenges with grace, compassion, empathy, and fun!

Oh right, a little bit more about me: I love to travel, read, and I am an avid skincare enthusiast. In my spare time, I like to renovate my apartment and and care for my (many) plant babies. I am thrilled you are here – welcome to the Innovative Solving family. Let’s get solving!
