Agree w D2 and D3. Another option is to just have the conversation with her. Is that (trying to prove readiness) what she's doing? How can you help? That way you take some control and show you're aware and on her team. It'll go a long way. Did it myself and every person who managed me eventually supported me for promo, whether directly or indirectly by helping build my brand to the people who were making the decision.

Lots of bad advice in here :) you want to work WITH her not against. Figure out what she's trying to achieve with the emails and offer to help somehow -- maybe you can instead send an email to her summarizing what you're going to do, and she can "approve" and cc the lead, then everyone looks good. There are probably 5 ways to fix this without resorting to drama.

Do you report to that consultant in the team structure? If you do, this is the chain of command, kid. If it's not working asked to be moved under someone else, but if she has to manage you don't blame her for managing you.

We're in different work streams! She gets the same emails I do about my work stream from various managers, and then likes to reword the original email and tries to tell me what to do while cc-ing my direct lead. Wouldn't bother me as much if it didn't make it look like I was incompetent 😒

This is not an HR issue

Yeah, in order to get promoted, she is going to have to "prove" that she has been managing you for at least six months. When you're in her shoes, you'll get it. See if there is a way that you can figure out how to be less annoyed by it, either by changing your attitude or by asking her to stop do certain things

Dude seriously, grow a pair. People like that will continue to try to make themselves look good at your expense if you let them go unchallenged. Next time she does it, just respond back with everyone cc'd "Yes Becky, I saw the email the first time. I'm working on it as usual."

Establish your dominance early and often.

First talk to your project lead. If you're a valuable member of the team who's making a real impact on the project, it's in their best interest to sort this out ASAP. Next start documenting all her emails and your interactions. Also document the conversation with your project lead. Give it a couple weeks. If the situation does not improve, go back to your project lead and report that the situation has not improved, it's having a negative impact on you (outlook, health, performance), and you're going to have to take it to HR. Give it another couple weeks and if it still does not improve, go to HR with all your documentation.
