To help LA's leading companies build authentic, high-performing employee, management, shareholder and customer cultures that truly benefit ALL.

I am a survivor of a workplace that drove me to anxiety, depression and weight gain. I know first hand how it is to hate to go work. I watched co-workers do drugs and spiral out of control until I had enough. For the past ten years i've educated and dedicated myself to helping companies thrive after my experience.

As the co-founder of Disrupt Human Resources Los Angeles, author and a leading culture expert I have a deep understanding of the factors that shape scaling, growing and maintaining workforces in Los Angeles.
