As an Industrial/ Organizational Psychologist, I have made it my personal mission to make work suck less for people. There is really no need to “dread Monday mornings” and “going back to the daily grind” when people have a genuine passion for their work and their organization’s culture supports and empowers them to be their best selves. I work with my clients to drive this type of organizational change by integrating their people data, operational data, and qualitative interview data to tell the story of the employee experience and uncover the most effective strategies to drive the organization forward.
