About Me

I'll keep this brief...

Leadership Experience 

I am a certified cognitive coach and two-time executive, who has served as Chief Human Resources Officer and Chief of Staff in organizations specializing in Talent, Risk Management, and a variety of internal functions (Advocacy, Analytics, Communications, Compliance, DEI, Grants, Marketing, Operations, and Strategy). I have been employed as a subject matter expert and leader of numerous work streams building broad and deep knowledge. My passion for systems thinking, future planning, and leadership coaching for growth and/or sustainability have become areas of specialization and I am motivated to bring them to each engagement.

A futurist with a deep conviction for inclusion, belonging, and the power of teams, I am mission-driven and my various engagements represent a synthesis of all things important to me: quality at scale, authentic leadership, community impact, and growth (personal, professional, and strategic). I work to make complex problems accessible and I debunk false dichotomies by leaning into nuance and objectivity. I am a coach and a leader of leaders with over 15 years of experience in and around education. A problem solver with a solutions-orientation, I enjoy working with clients and partners to seek their desired outcomes.

AxlPhx means two things:

  1. A legacy to leave the world better for my children and yours; and

  2. That when the world knocks you down, you muster the resilience to rise again.
