Expert Bio

My name is Maggie, and I am a seasoned professional with a passion for partnering with startups, scaleups, and small businesses to design environments that drive growth, optimize operations, and activate team members to do their best work. With over 13 years of experience in business operations, strategy, and people operations, I have honed my expertise in areas such as culture design, operational efficiency, strategic planning, and building the people function from the ground up. What I Do: 1. Gaps between vision, strategy, and execution? I partner with key leaders and help bring their vision to life. 2. Lack of progress toward achieving company goals? I help build goal-setting frameworks using a top-down approach to ensure goals are clear, attainable, and realistic. 3. Experiencing operational inefficiencies? I evaluate, design, and implement efficient and scalable processes that save time and money. 4. Team members disengaged? I assess, diagnose, and then design sound people strategies to activate your people and align them to the mission. 5. Navigating complex team member dynamics? I resolve conflict between team members by providing employee and manager coaching, mediating conversations, and offering an unbiased and non-judgemental space to process complex issues. 6. Disjointed systems and/or spending too much on underutilized technology? I assess company-wide technology spend, utilization, and efficiency to ensure teams have streamlined productivity tools. -- Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of working with organizations of various sizes, ranging from 7-person startups to companies with 33,000 employees. My focus has primarily been on US-based and global startups and scaleups in the digital health, SaaS, and tech sectors. I have had the opportunity to collaborate with teams across the globe, including India, the Philippines, Ukraine, Germany, and Lithuania. One of the most rewarding aspects of my work is shaping the people, operations, and culture functions to ensure close alignment with the business strategy. I have been a 4-time founder of the people function, but I have also owned components of business operations, strategy, IT, and project management. This diverse background has given me a unique perspective and the ability to provide comprehensive advice on business and people strategies and initiatives. I thrive on working with founders, CEOs, COOs, and Chiefs of Staff who are looking to take their organizations to the next level. My goal is to help them navigate the challenges of scaling their businesses while creating thriving and activated teams. By leveraging my expertise in business and people operations, I can provide tailored solutions that drive growth, optimize efficiency, and foster a positive and inclusive culture. I am excited to continue my journey of partnering with startups, scaleups, and small businesses to unlock their full potential. If you are seeking a dedicated and experienced professional to guide you through the complexities of business growth, I am confident that I am the ideal candidate for you.
