I am, first and foremost, a communicator (speaking, writing and listening).
After 15 years as an attorney – with an AmLaw 100 firm, private equity/hedge fund and smaller entrepreneurial law firm and in solo practice – I shifted gears and became an executive coach, author and resume writer. The move was not made on impulse. Like many of my clients, I transitioned after a few years of contemplating and experimenting with different ideas until I found the right fit.
