“Just because it is hard does not mean we shouldn’t do it.”

Kelly and Therese met back in 2003, and have pursued hard, challenging and exciting endeavors within both public and private companies. Over the years, they became trusted colleagues and friends based on a core mission—they are passionate about purpose-driven work, and find the most rewarding efforts to be those that drive meaningful impact.

Guided by Kelly’s track record for successful strategic and transformative growth, and Therese’s expertise in organizational change and systems thinking, the power of their partnership opened their eyes to the opportunity of helping other companies achieve their next level of success. As people who have firsthand leadership experience dealing with complexity, Kelly and Therese strive to be trusted advisors who know the value of partners who care about their initiatives and goals, and can support those efforts in an authentic, transparent and tangible way.
