Trusted Advisor.  Business Owner.  Change Agent.  Speaker.


What happens when Marketing expertise meets HR know-how? Me!

I founded HeatherP Solutions to work with progressive leaders of small and mid-sized businesses to accelerate revenue growth by creating work environments where people thrive.


My proven methodology focuses on driving business performance through employee performance. I do this by cultivating distinctive work experiences, crafting a differentiated story to attract and retain key talent, addressing workplace culture, breaking down silos, empowering front-line managers, and improving employee engagement.

What's My Secret?

  1. I marry Marketing, HR and Operations. I am the connector of functions and remover of silos

  2. I drive business strategy through talent, culture, employer branding, employee experience, engagement strategy and people-leader development, breaking it down into tangible, bite-sized actions to make it the new reality.

  3. I work BOTH top-down and bottom up. Everyone has a role to play and I show them how to play it. I work with leaders to create a shared vision, and work through employees to create results.

Before launching HeatherP Solutions, I led the first global marketing division of Fortune 6 UnitedHealth Group. I applied my consumer-centric marketing expertise to attracting, retaining, and engaging the people needed to fuel the organization’s success, and discovered my passion for this work in the process.


For nearly 12 years, I served as the critical link between Marketing and Human Resources, reporting into the Chief Officers for both. My work helped to quadruple their revenue, transform their culture, repair their reputation as a place to work, integrate cultures and brands of 20+ acquired businesses, and localize their presence in culturally relevant ways around the globe.


If you’re ready to imagine what’s possible for your company and employees, let's work together to make that happen!
