I see patterns. I feel people and what is felt "in the room," but perhaps is left unsaid. I listen deeply and with empathy. From these inputs, I synthesize everything and then communicate out through visual notetaking or graphic facilitation, and by crafting rich learning experiences that help people gain clarity and take action around not only their goals but their heart's desires. I help people with process and with mindset. Why? Because I believe in people and their dreams as human beings at this exciting moment in time. I believe in the possibility of all things. And I believe that unleashing purpose-filled energy into the world can solve many complex issues of our times. I love exploring the question, "What does it mean to be human?" and Mary Oliver's "What will you do with your one wild and precious life?" Let's find out together whether for you or your organization.
I draw everything out that you're holding in terms of wanting to create or in the process of creating. I deconstruct assumptions and reconstruct your life or business vision by creating a proprietary JourneyMap that captures the yearning I sense plus strengths that I see from you. The mapping includes a graphic recording as well as a 90-day action plan.
You are in or are wanting a life transition. You seek to uncover your purpose and you want to know that all the parts of you are being held in your new vision. Whether this is happening at midlife, during a career change, just after college graduation, or at a point where your legacy matters a lot, I create space to hear you with empathy because you yearn to be heard deeply at this moment in your life. You know it will be a relief when you can see your life's story laid out in front of you and that it resonates with what's in your heart. You're ready to take action and are unapologetic about wanting more control in your life. Living out loud is a form of creative expression and you see living as your most authentic self as an artform.

I learn all the time. From reading, to videos, to conversations, to courses and certifications, I tune into what's going on in the world and intuitively bring ideas, people, and resources together in ways that spark creativity, innovation, playfulness, and revenue generation.
I truly believe in possibility and know that often, we stand in our own way. That is why I love applying my knowledge and expertise in education, human development, positive psychology, and somatic awareness to help open up possibilities in people and in organizations. Urgency motivates me as I love solving problems and am a commitment to my clients' success. I listen for what's said and not said, and incorporate the "invisible" to synthesize whatever's on your mind into recommendations for your next best steps.
