Think of the surgeon first putting scalpel to patient. Think of the attorney first appearing before a jury. Think of the marketing guru landing her first corporate client.
It took me more than 25 years to find my own passion. Consulting with women to help them crush their pay gap. Everything I learned as a commercial litigator - strategy, tactics, anticipating push backs, persuasive speech, how to keep underground storage tanks from leaking ("cathodic protection") - enables me to help you navigate the best deal of your career.
Here's the passionate part about what I do now. THERE'S NO ONE ON THE OTHER SIDE WHO IS EQUALLY (OR MORE) ABLE TO CONVINCE, PERSUADE, COJOLE, OR BULLY INTO SUBMISSION. Just me and you. My strategy. Your voice.
You may not be brilliant the first time you ask for 30-50% more in compensation, but you have me in your back pocket.

The whole family gathers around the dining room table for the big announcement. Where did your millennial decide to go to college? And then, you hear “it." The two words you’ve been dreading most: Community. College.
