FEATURED IN AND SEEN ON
As the founding CEO of Powerful Penny LLC, I bring over 30 years of executive corporate leadership and transitional coaching to the table. Our company goal is straightforward yet impactful: steer your organization to unparalleled success by tapping into the true potential of your most valuable asset – your people. This not only improves retention but also contributes significantly to your company’s bottom line.
