About
With over 25 years of experience in corporate health management, talent management, and crisis management consulting, I am passionate about helping leaders and organizations overcome challenges and achieve their goals. As a Managing Director at Twisters Management Consulting LLC, I leverage my expertise in evidence-based management, applied psychology, data storytelling, and analytical skills to provide innovative and effective solutions for my clients. One of my unique offerings is horse-assisted coaching, which is a powerful and experiential method to enhance personal and professional development. By working with a horse and a coach on the ground, clients can gain insights into their body language, communication style, emotional intelligence, and leadership presence. I also specialize in personality assessment-at-a-distance, which is a valuable tool for due diligence, ghost negotiation, fraud investigation, and other high-stakes situations. Additionally, I have a strong background in investigative psychology and forensics, which enables me to apply behavioral analysis and profiling techniques to various security contexts.
