I am an independent consultant specializing in building transparency in supply chains, establishing a understanding of risk and setting a clear path for improvement with a long term perspective.
I’ve spent years working closely with companies among the Fortune 100 in strategic management of environmental and social impact of global production practices. Together, we explore, evaluate and embed sustainable and ethical business practices that ensure corporate sustainability initiatives and social/environmental monitoring programs are more effective and meaningful.
I offer senior level consulting experience in labor and environmental issues across industries that include apparel, consumer products, agriculture, food processing and electronics. I’m committed to supporting and pushing companies and organizations to work toward better solutions, to challenge one another to rethink the systems that are not working and to consider all aspects of impact and opportunity when imagining a truly sustainable supply chain.
