Specializing in the DTC wine business and restaurant industry, I work with family-owned and founder-led companies to unlock the full potential of their business. Drawing on my experience as DTC President at Francis Ford Coppola Winery — where I led the ground-up build and growth of two wineries and three restaurants along with ecommerce — I help CEOs and Owners uniquely position their brands in the market and fuel sustained, profitable growth while deepening consumer and employee engagement.
I approach my work as if my clients’ companies were my own, becoming fully immersed in the operation and placing equal focus on the business, customer, culture and people.
I’m extremely passionate about building businesses and helping senior leaders shape purpose-driven cultures, as I believe those who authentically embed deeper meaning in their pursuit of profit can truly thrive. My advanced degree in integral/organizational psychology also enables me to add unique business value, with a nuanced appreciation for the psychological dimensions of leadership, consumer behavior and employee motivation.
An active community leader, public speaker and published author, I am a master storyteller. I enjoy creating thought-provoking content that inspires other business leaders and young professionals to flourish, personally and professionally.
