I love to do DIY work: renovating my basement and main bathroom shower and building built-in furniture in my kids’ rooms.

With more than 10 years’ experience across automotive, industrials, food and beverage, and payments/financial services, I’ve advised a range of clients on the various growth and transformation strategies available to them to deliver consistent top and bottom-line growth and maximize returns on invested capital.

I was drawn to consulting because of the opportunity to solve big problems and make a large impact for clients. My clients appreciate that I approach each and every problem with a deep sense of curiosity and care.

Prior to Plante Moran, I worked at Honda R&D, where I received a patent for a design that reduces part and inventory costs, and PwC Strategy& (formerly Booz & Company) where I served many clients across various industries. I earned a BASc in mechanical engineering from the University of Waterloo and my M.B.A. from the University of Michigan Ross School of Business.

Outside of work, I’ve become a big football fan, both college and the NFL, and am a big Detroit Lions and Michigan Wolverines fan. I enjoy spending time with my husband and kids and going out to eat.
