I Partner With Business Owners in 2 Ways

As Your Fractional Right-Hand Person

As a Mentor To Your Right-Hand Person


One of the most effective ways to work together is a combination of both

I serve as your right hand person as I mentor, train, and develop someone from your team to step into the role.  They learn the full Lean Business Scaling System and get certified to operate at the C-Suite Level as your right-hand Strategy and Operations Leader (SOL).

Will we be a good fit together?

If you're looking for a stuffy suit-wearing corporate-executive type who loves complex and prescriptive solutions, we won't be a good fit…  

However, if you are looking for someone who feels like a true partner in your business, who "gets you" and your vision, and who is just as committed to making your vision and goals a reality as you are, with a whole lot of heart and some laughs along the way, then let's chat

I'm not your typical COO. In fact, I don't even call myself a COO (although a lot of my clients do).

That means you won't get typical results… because you deserve so much more than "typical".

So what am I?

Enter your Chief Strategy and Operating Officer, CSOO.

Some of my clients call me their COO.  Others call me their CMO. 

I blend front-end business growth with back-end operational excellence as a seasoned expert who has developed a proven framework for scaling. 

I'm a bit of a unicorn, and I bet you are too.

Consider me your strategic partner who helps you accelerate bringing your big bold vision and goals to life.


When we partner together, you don't just get a strategist or operations leader by your side - you get an entire ecosystem for scaling success.

You get the Lean Business Scaling System™.


You are not simply investing in strategy and support.

You are investing in accelerated and sustainable results.

And that's what my team and I deliver.

I have combined more than 20 years of lean and agile experience and being a trusted scaling strategist to some of the biggest companies in the world as well as leaders in the online coaching, consulting, and service-based industries into a proven framework for scaling.  

As a unique blend of 50% right-brain and 50% left brain...

And as someone who has both worked alongside and been a member of the C-Suite...

I understand what the CEO of a scaling business needs most and how to get creative in achieving the results you want in a simple, sustainable, and aligned way.

I can quickly spot gaps and small improvements that can have a massive impact on results, and I am passionate about building up the teams and leaders within your company to be able to effectively implement on your vision.
