As a wife and mom of 2, the pandemic gave us a lot of time together. All 4 of us were working under one roof. I feel grateful for that time, but as the months went by our family needed to shake things up a bit. Joining THE coLABorative has been helpful to allow me to focus on work and my husband to focus on the virtual education of our 2 kiddos. At THE coLABorative, I love getting my second cup of coffee and diving into my work activities. I appreciate the ability to reserve conference rooms for virtual meetings on confidential topics. It has also been great to network with others in the building. It feels good to get up, take a short drive to THE coLAB where I have focused time to think about my work goals for the day, work hard, drive home where I shift my focus to my family, and enjoy an evening with them sharing what we did that day.
I am the Chief of Staff for the president of General Motors. His leadership spans globally across Product Development; Quality; Portfolio Planning; Vehicle Sales, Service & Marketing; Creative Design; and Research & Development. As the CoS, I lead strategic projects, facilitate cross functional meetings, and lead and plan all events sponsored by my leader. I also engage in a few side hustle activities focused on attracting, developing and retaining diverse talent. I have a passion for helping women achieve their personal and professional goals. That hunger is fed by working with the Michigan State University Recruiting team, the Society of Women Engineers organization, and our employee resource groups.
I love taking trips with my family to visit my extended family in the Upper Peninsula. Every summer we pack the car drive 8+ hours and enjoy my dad’s camp (Yooper term for cottage) on Lake Ruth in Michigammie, Michigan. Some of my best memories as a child were made there and I love creating new memories with my husband and kids
