Her focus is on being intentional with all she does and she helps her clients to act in the same manner, aligning their communications with their strategy to move closer to their desired impacts.
Net’s career path was formed at an early age. As a young girl, she lost her grandfather to pancreatic cancer. From that moment forward, she was determined to do whatever she could to end the suffering of others. She earned a Ph.D. and set out to become a cancer research scientist. She soon realized that her vision extended beyond the walls of the laboratory. Leveraging her academic training along with a passion to help others, Net embarked on a consulting career in technology transfer, guiding new scientific discoveries and innovations out of the lab and into products that could change lives. In this role, she has helped bring to market products like NASA’s solar battery-free refrigerator, which delivers vaccines to remote regions of the world; an anti-cancer compound with a novel mechanism of action; and a biological preservative that can be utilized in challenging storage conditions.

She empowers clients to take on big challenges and find innovative solutions. Net helps her clients and colleagues to rise up to challenges, moving far beyond their own expectations. Her inspiring and effective approach to communication serves as a model for others.
