After learning about and successfully negotiating my salary for a new job, I was inspired to teach others how to do so. I had my own Salary Negotiation Consulting firm for 6 years, during which I coached many to feel more confident discussing salary and benefits when interviewing for a new job or negotiating a raise at a current gig.

After six years, I realized that being a solo entrepreneur didn’t make my heart sing, and being part of high-tech writing team did. So I returned to tech writing, which had been my career before and during my coaching days. I’ve worked for terrific firms including Chiron (now Novartis),, Siebel Systems, CA Technologies, and now Broadcom.

Outside of work, I enjoy hanging out with friends and family, watching Jeopardy and poker on TV, hiking, and playing with my two black cats: Cosmos and Halley.

I’ve attended all the SF-based LWT conferences starting with year 2, and am happy to share my knowledge, tips, and tricks with this wonderful community.
