I’ve excelled in shaping organizational success through culture development, learning, and talent management. As VP of Culture, Learning, and Engagement at BrandMuscle, I led transformative initiatives, including designing and implementing impactful learning programs, leadership development, and culture-building strategies that contributed to notable employee engagement and satisfaction.
During my tenure as Director of Organizational Effectiveness at Cuyahoga Community College, I identified revenue opportunities, designed talent solutions, and negotiated contracts, while at National City Bank, I generated $4 million through learning projects and achieved a 6% ROI on onboarding and reduced early employee turnover. These accomplishments, combined with my M.S. in Organizational Development and Analysis from Case Western Reserve University, and diverse certifications, position me as a results-driven OD leader ready to deliver exceptional value to any organization.
