Cindy's had four careers she never planned that's led to an incredibly exciting and diverse life and learning experience. She knows what's required to successfully shift career focus, launch and build companies and start over later in life.
She was in her '50s when she left a global management role to follow the dream of helping people, like her, who'd been successful but were now feeling drawn toward doing something more fulfilling.
She’s a best-selling author, clinical hypnotherapist, licensed trainer of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, certified in numerous coaching programs and licensed to practice various therapies.
In her early career, Cindy fell into the role of investigative reporter, having never intended to be a reporter but born with the gift of being able to write well. She moved from Chicago to New York City to cover the nuclear fuel industry and at 29 helped launch a nuclear fuel brokerage business that in less than one year had forever changed the way commercial nuclear fuel products were priced.
Over 10 years later she launched her own consulting company and ended up moving to London where she joined a company in the energy trading industry. She became the first female manager of a price reporting division and would eventually create a global managing role overseeing the company's largest and highest revenue generating division.
Her business acumen includes managing large teams, creating sales and marketing plans, working on compliance and governance documentation and helping ease the transition of new teams created by mergers and acquisitions. Throughout her career, Cindy has always focused on communication being key in creating good relationships and supported direct reports and colleagues by helping them discover their skills, confidence and self worth.
