I’m the youngest of four girls. After giving up on having a son, my dad nicknamed me “Clyde” and taught me to fish and golf. After seemingly endless summers on the golf course with my dad, I went to Penn State and became a member of the Women’s Varsity Golf Team. I went on to work as an Assistant Golf Professional for a couple of years. Seeking more fulfillment, I decided to follow my other dream of becoming a lawyer. With no other lawyers in my family, I had no idea what I was going to do until I landed a job with a top, international law firm one week before school ended. I later became an equity partner at my law firm and then served as Associate General Counsel, Global HR & Litigation, for The Hershey Company. (Yes, endless supplies of chocolate were a perk!)


But I hated being a lawyer. I wanted to be on the front end of business, helping prevent the problems I saw as a lawyer. Consulting was a natural move. I founded The Human Zone in 2015 and have been helping clients solve day-to-day employee issues, build better cultures, improve communication and drive collaboration ever since. Over the last couple of years, I developed and refined a unique team and individudal development model called frientorship®. Leveraging key principles of friendship, mentorship and leadership, I deliver keynotes and workshops designed to bring out the best in leaders and build fully-engaged organizations. Business is personal, and the frientorship® method shows you how to become the leader your team loves, your peers admire and your clients need. If you're curious, my book is available on Amazon.


I am a member of the Advisory Board for The Salvation Army Greater Harrisburg, where I also co-chair and helped found the TSA Annual Shoe Strut. Because of the Shoe Strut, thousands of local children in need have received new shoes, and tens of thousands of dollars have been raised to support TSA programs and services. I enjoy spending every minute I can with my husband and daugthers! I love great food, great wine and great friendship. Click the buttons to the left to connect with me on social media! I'd love to learn more about you!
