Colleen’s understanding of what makes a business tick comes from her nearly 25 years of parking industry experience, and her insatiable curiosity about superior business. 

Colleen assesses strategies for organizational growth, HR practices, recruitment plans, and employee learning and development for parking operators, tech providers and public institutions. Rarely do consultants possess such a clear line of sight between results and people performance as well as drive tangible change from the ground up—but Colleen does. She investigates and leads all levels of an organization to deliver both financial and intrinsic results.  And she is a hopeless Cleveland sports fan.
