Her consulting client list includes Motorola, Respironics, British Petroleum, Waste Management, and Cisco. She consulted to Johnson & Johnson's McNeil Consumer Labs during the Tylenol poisoning crisis and is credited with saving the company. She has an MBA and an Honorary Doctorate.

She believes that a combination of technology, clear process, and progressive leadership, funded by smart spend management can save endangered companies.
