Nothing Ordinary About It.

Headquartered in New York City, I provide CEO and C-Level executives guidance and management support. For those in search of building a better business, my clients come to me as a trusted ally to help identify the roadblocks that can make the difference between living with goals or achieving them.

If You’re Motivated, Visionary & Empowered

I will be your “secret weapon” – and I'll get up to speed quickly. 

  • Whether you’re a Fortune 500 exec, or

  • An incoming C-level executive wanting to implement a new strategy or make a significant change in direction, or

  • Incoming expat leader needing to learn about how to work within new culture, or

  • Incumbent leader wanting to grow the culture to support business growth

My aim is to help you thrive in the world that may be new to you – or newly changing – because of outside influences, growth circumstances, or something yet to be defined.


Getting It.


C-Level Executives

Between 25 and 40 percent of Fortune 500 companies use coaches*. Regardless of your business size; whether you came up through the ranks or were recently recruited; whether it's a new enterprise or established through generations; publicly traded or private, coaching is a mainstay of solid growth.  * The Hay Group survey


If you’ve been stopped with phrases like, “we’re looking for a more seasoned professional” or, “you're over-qualified”, there may be an age-related issue hovering just beneath the surface. Age discrimination may be part of human nature, but there is no excuse to miss the motion you’re looking for because you are perceived as being too young or too old. It's about time that age no longer matters. Capability to deliver results is what matters.

Women Rising

This is the time when monickers relating to inequality are rising to the surface. But how business and society treat women is by no means a new discussion. A particular passion at MJM, the work that prepares women to break through, read the situation, grow business, seal the deal (in other words, simply BEING equal) is what we’re all about. You too? Well, it's about time.

Minorities Ascending

The goal is clear, but we too often have a long way to go. There's just one African American woman on the Fortune 500 list. And in its history, just 64 women have made that list at all. Fewer than 20 percent of Congress are minority when, as a nation, minorities are the fastest growing sector. It’s time to be clear. Be proactive. Rise. Now is the time.

What got you here
won’t get you there.
