"Leading with the mindset of a pragmatic futurist, I'm dedicated to the ethical application of technology, particularly AI. I believe that purpose and profits can - and should - co-exist!"
Everyone is unique and offers their own superpower to the world. I'm The Artificial Intelligence Strategist who uses outside-in thinking to help Fortune 500 executives and board directors drive growth, improve profitability, and turn ethics and reputation risks into opportunities. I do this through the intersection of my 4 lenses:
Seasoned IT Practitioner (aka "buyer and operator")
Enterprise Software Leader (aka "seller")
Executive Advisory (aka "vision-to-solutions field delivery")
AI for Enterprise Researcher (aka "risk & reward assessor")
My unique perspective, earned through my latticed (vs ladder) career journey, allows me to do this unlike anyone else…
◾ Engineer / Sales Engineer
◾ IT Practitioner (CIO)
◾ Technology Field Enterprise Sales (MSFT)
◾ Technology Research & Advisory for Executives (Gartner)
◾ Consulting - Industry Advisory (TDC/SPLK)
◾ CMO (Financial Svcs) & MBA Program Marketing Professor
◾ Doctoral Candidate - Artificial Intelligence
I am a thought leader who loves to envision, design, and implement change. I'm a builder who loves to create, retool, and modernize. To excite and onboard my customers, colleagues, and partners so that we are constantly evolving - together.
Given my unique background, my rounded perspective gives me empathy across corporate silos, between partners, and for customers of every industry. It allows me to design organizational transformation with a modern and horizontally integrated approach, to translate between business and technology language, and to consistently bring an "outside-in" perspective to executive clients, teams, and partner relationships.
I’m the Chief AI Strategist for AI Leaders, a boutique advisory and consulting firm. I am also an AI doctoral candidate and a university professor for MBA students in Marketing, Finance, Organizational Behavior, and Ethics. I am passionate about supporting #womenintech and actively mentor and sponsor. As a committed lifelong learner, I am dedicated to growing both personally & professionally while fostering that mentality in my coworkers, clients, students, mentees, and within my online and IRL communities.
