​I am a Client Relationship Director in the Washington, DC office of KPMG’s Forensic Advisory Services practice. I direct the business development initiatives for the mid-Atlantic region and across the legal channel. I joined KPMG after more than 20 years of experience managing global account teams where I was focused on delivering maximum returns for the client and exceeding growth and profitability metrics. I have a proven record of establishing relationships, being a ‘connector’ both internally across networks and also across the law firms and corporations. I am a coach/mentor to the staff, and focus on promoting a culture of relationship management to develop referral opportunities. My experience spans small companies to Fortune 500 companies. I have developed “Go to Market” strategies for new joint ventures,  twice led a team in renewing a $100M+ contract, and have over 10 years of economic development experience across Asia and Europe. I have a proven record of working effectively across cultures and has lived in Japan on three different occasions and negotiated transactions across China.

I have a Master’s degree in International Management from University of Maryland, and Bachelors from Kalamazoo College.
