After a 20-year journey working with attorneys, I've honed the skill of sharing my client's headspace. I listen, inspire, create, execute, measure, and celebrate your wins in marketing and business development. I test your presumptions and push you outside of your comfort zone. From solopreneurs and boutique practice-builders to large firm leaders and their in-house change-agents, I bring a spectrum of experience to match right-sized solutions to strategic goals.
My professional craft was honed through charges as salesperson, marketer, business developer, strategist, team-builder, project manager, event planner, social media campaigner, implementer, trusted advisor and coach.
As Principal of J FORESTER CONSULTING, I work collaboratively with Leslie and Jill at C-SUITE SOLUTIONS, serving clients throughout the California Capital Region. For example, as Virtual Marketing Director to Forester Purcell Stowell − a boutique family law firm in Folsom − I nurture the brand through attorney coaching and client experience management. Most recently, as Business Development Manager for AM Law 200 firm Stoel Rives LLP, I supported national attorney teams serving energy and natural resources clients. My work with Stoel Rives continues as Program Manager of its Sacramento Region Innovation Awards, a signature event spotlighting business innovation. Before working in-house for Stoel Rives and McDonough Holland & Allen, I developed advertising initiatives for national law firms utilizing ALM's suite of legal media products. My “lawyer whispering” skills began to sharpen as a young college grad in sales and marketing positions at a family-owned legal book and magazine publisher.
