My colleagues had some nice words to say about my approach and work!
If you are looking for a senior management consultant that has the people, organizational, coaching, business transformation, and change management skills, Sandra is my choice. Sandra applies these skills while managing up and down the business chain. The best way to blend Sandra’s ability and your business’s needs is to set up a voice to voice or face to face meeting. Your business will be well served.

I had the privilege of working with Sandra at IBM from 2000 to 2017. In my early work with Sandra she was leading our Linux consulting business and lab advocate program. Sandra was excellent at listening and consulting with IBM customers to understand their business needs and pair them with deep technical skills to successfully implement Linux business solutions. I witnessed Sandra excellently bridge the gap between business needs and technical requirements.
Later, Sandra took on the critical role of leading newly acquired businesses and their executive teams into integrating into IBM to be successful as a business unit. Her ability to understand the outsider’s perspective and interpret that into the IBM corporate culture, helped accelerate integration and increase retention of critical knowledge and skills.
If you are looking for someone to teach, coach, implement change management or business transformation, I highly recommend Sandra for the position.

I was fortunate enough to successfully complete a Coaching program with Sandra in 2017. Sandra is not only a positive and supportive force, her professionalism mixed with compassion only enhanced the series of sessions and encouraged me to find my strengths, areas to improve, and enhance my professional confidence. Her consistent encouragement has led me down some professional paths I would have never ventured. I so very much appreciate out continued relationship and know anyone that is fortunate enough to partner with will be nothing but triumph.

Sandra managed our integration efforts for FileNet’s channel program into IBM and was exceptional at working with the large team and numerous workstreams with tight deadlines. Sandra also took on the challenge of managing a number of Marketing workstreams on a couple of acquisitions, including our vendor, finance and education requirements and always provided exceptional guidance to the acquisition and was a good mentor and friend to everyone she worked with.
