Our Team

Our team has over 50 years of experience supporting senior executives across strategy, finance and sales. We know the best-practices subscription model having served on the executive team at the Corporate Executive Board (CEB)

“Sales leaders and their teams are facing increased complexity in the buying environment. We focus on helping sales organizations achieve excellence through a simple yet powerful process. “
I began my career focused on solving problems faced by senior executives at large companies across the world. As an early team member at the best practices and strategic research firm called the Corporate Executive Board (CEB), we pioneered the “membership model” of identifying a common set of issues, building a network of smart executives, and facilitating the path forward to make progress against priorities. Primarily through data and analytics, best practices research, networking and benchmarking, CEB built a membership of over 3,000 companies across the globe.
After 14 years at CEB, I moved on to start several fin-tech companies that were focused on  leveraging payment transaction data to connect on-line advertising to in-store revenue outcomes. We were instrumental in defining a new advertising category that is now called “card-linked offers”.
My last company was acquired in 2019 and I knew I wanted to return to my “problem solving” roots. I went on a “listening tour” of senior executives and heard a resounding call for more strategic support for their  Sales organization. That led to the founding of Ideascape.
My educational background includes: Vanderbilt University with a B.S. in Human and Organizational Development. MBA from the George Washington University. Cornell University Certificate of Diversity and Inclusion Studies.

“DEI aspirations and expectations have evolved much faster than DEI playbooks have. Closing that gap means finding new ways for DEI organizations to add capability, accelerate impact and build credibility with stakeholders. That’s exactly what we help clients do.”

Serving as Head of Product and Chief Research Officer at ideascape offers a unique opportunity for me to pull together three separate threads from my own professional life—an interest in building new companies (more of a habit, really), a desire to help other leaders succeed and a drive to solve big problems.

Leadership teams at large companies are under enormous pressure to do something meaningful in DEI. At the same time, it’s clear to us that many legacy DEI management practices and much of the service ecosystem that’s grown up to support them aren’t well-suited to meeting new challenges in a higher-stakes environment. I’m excited to be part of a team that’s bringing new perspectives on DEI problems and solutions as well as fresh, client-centric approaches to service delivery.     

Over the past 20 years, I’ve founded and worked with a wide variety of early-stage companies as a private investor, senior adviser and executive team member. Earlier in my career, I was a leader in the strategy and finance practice at the Corporate Executive Board (CEB), a pioneering best practices research and analytics firm, where I focused on high-profile new business launches, enterprise initiatives and product and delivery innovation.

I received a BS in Economics and a BA in International Affairs from the School of International Service at American University and completed advanced studies in International Trade, Finance and Security Policy at Universite Libre de Bruxelles and Economic Policy at Georgetown University.

In my free time, I enjoy mountain biking, kayaking and tennis. I’m also an enthusiastic traveler, reader and guitarist.   

Want to learn valuable sales tech skills and practice your content writing abilities, all while working to advance workplace equity?
Ideascape is a best practices and advisory platform for Sales leaders. We are looking for a Sales and Marketing intern to help with both technical and content-based needs.

  • Impactful Field: Sales is at the core of all organizations; without sales, nothing else matters.
