How I went from being a frustrated franchisee to tripling my revenue and then helping franchisors experience strengthened relationships with their franchisees so they too could benefit from a higher performing network.
Before I realized a franchise relationship was like a business marriage, I was a franchisee …
Isolated and misaligned with the franchisors overall mission.
Craving support and solutions to build a successful business.
After selling my business and becoming a franchisor business coach, I learned my feelings of frustration and misalignment were common among other franchisees. Immediately, I explored new research and combined it with proven business principles to elevate trust building and relationship resiliance so the entire franchise organization flourished.
As an entrepreneur, business psychologist and researcher, I love sharing my knowledge and experience to help franchise organizations thrive - both in terms of relationships and sustainability.
I enjoy inspiring and empowering people using 20 year’s experience as a Therapist, Crisis Counselor, Business Coach and Consultant. To help my clients reach a new level of success, I combine my personal experiences, professional opportunities, and research to create an integrated approach unique to your organization.
Applying clinical and business psychology to franchise organizations, provides solutions to one of the most stressful problems felt by franchisors - relationships. All my work is guided by evidence-based research and theory. I earned a Master’s degree in Counseling and Doctorate in Business Psychology. As a lifelong learner, I continue to conduct research to contribute innovation to the field while also collaborating with industry leaders.
