Tina brings a wealth of experience to the learning and development space, as well as practical management and leadership expertise. After obtaining a degree in Instructional Technology from California State University, Chico, Tina began her career in corporate training. She worked as an Instructional Designer and Trainer for the Fortune 500 companies Arthur Anderson and Fireman’s Fund Insurance. With her deep interest in organizational development, Tina sought to gain hands-on management experience and spent the next phase of her career in leadership positions in both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, including United Business Media, a global communications company, and Redwood Day School, an innovative K-8 school in Oakland, CA.
Over the years, she gained valuable insights and tools to help build high-performing sales, marketing, and customer service teams that consistently exceeded revenue and service goals while encouraging her teams to maintain a work-life balance. After many years of successfully leading and mentoring team members to be highly functional and productive, she has returned to her passion, learning and development, where she can effectively apply her knowledge to a larger audience. Tina joined Energy Catalyst Group in March of 2019 as a Trainer and Facilitator.
Tina’s management and leadership roles provided her countless opportunities to lead and motivate diverse teams. This rich and varied experience, along with her desire to help employees become more engaged, energized, and effective in their day-to-day work life, makes her a strong and effective trainer. Tina gets great satisfaction from offering practical solutions, tips, and strategies for reducing stress while accelerating productivity.
Outside of work, Tina gets energized by spending time with her husband and sons, walking her dogs in the East Bay hills, cooking, reading, watching movies, gardening, and playing Scrabble with family and friends.
