Jeopardy! winner (seriously)

Originally from Eastchester, New York, I attended college at Wesleyan University where i majored in political science and minored in Romance languages.

Graduating magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, I was accepted to Harvard Business School, where I concentrated in marketing. I graduated with distinction in 1971, and thereafter began working at one of New York's largest advertising agencies, Benton & Bowles, as an account executive.

I rose quickly in the organization being named a vice-president in 1975. In the subsequent 15 years I also worked with several other firms as a senior executive, including Wells Rich Greene as EVP & Chiat/Day as Director of Account Management. Among the clients I worked for were: Procter & Gamble, Sony, Coca-Cola, Bayer, Mitsubishi, Fisher-Price, and Energizer (The bunny was developed under my tenure as the lead account manager).

In my early 40s I embarked on a process of inner work and exploration that led me to move from New York to Los Angeles and to discover the path of my current career. I enrolled in Antioch University in 1994, earning a Master's degree in clinical psychology. I also accumulated 3,000 hours of internship training and was licensed as a psychotherapist (Marriage and Family Therapist).

In late 2005 I moved from Los Angeles to Washington and became licensed by the District of Columbia.  In the time I have been here I have been fortunate enough to build a thriving practice working with a very diverse, motivated, and intelligent group of clients.

Plan to join us after the meeting for networking.  Many of us carry our conversations to lunch at the nearby Brookings Institution.

Attire is business casual, recruiters are often present, so we ask all Monday Speaker attendees to contribute to the professional standards and objectives of this important networking meeting.

Doors open at 9:15 for networking and the program starts promptly at 10:00.
