I give STEM professionals and businesses the tools to confidently supercharge their performance, results, and careers. With over twenty years’ experience in working with STEM teams. I understand the issues organizations face when building and sustaining diverse teams as well as the challenges women encounter in achieving career success. My wealth of knowledge in delivering change outcomes for large multinationals, government bodies and organizations, combined with my passion for seeing women in STEM achieve career success, has lead me to develop tools that supercharge their performance and results. I help: STEM Teams: Improving the diversity of teams by providing the tools, training, coaching they require to achieve sustainable success. I believe that diversity in teams in STEM organizations is important, enabling them to implement change/transformation initiatives that are critical to ongoing longevity. With the right focus, organizations can attract and retain exceptional people. Professional STEM Women: Giving women the confidence, tools, and skills to have the career they want with 1 to 1, group and mastermind coaching and training. Although not true for every woman, I have found that some don’t have the same career success as their male peers. While there are many reasons for this, it is important that women have the tools, strategies, and knowledge on how to achieve their own career success. I am the author of ” Age Defying Careers – A guide for women at 40”. The book is a how-to book on how to transition to the career they want.
