Prior to founding the Grilled Cheese Coaching Co., Trillium gained 15 years of experience in different roles across corporate America and spent the majority of that time as a leader in the HR and Talent Development fields.  Trillium is grateful for having had the opportunity to work with individuals, executives, and teams across different organizational and experience levels and industries.
