In the start-up arena, six ideas in a thousand secure venture funding. and only six in a million make it to IPO.* Insider knowledge of the challenges facing corporate launches enables her to work seamlessly with clients while providing the fresh perspective, know-how and agency resources that motivate sourcing a consultant.
One of her first employers was Nordstrom where she received direct training from the Nordstrom brothers and their executive team. The elegance of the Nordstrom philosophy continues to have a profound impact on her ideas about the bottom-line importance of customer service.
