With 2-3 weeks advance notice I can be fairly flexible M-F during the work day. Alternatively, I also have near-term availability on nights and weekends.

I am a nationally recognized leader in the field of creative placemaking and a sought-after speaker and advisor with nearly a decade of experience working with diverse communities as an arts organizer and twice that providing direct patient care in various capacities as a professional nurse. As an immersed organizer working at the intersections of art, community and economic development, social justice, and human service I have tremendous passion for supporting emerging leaders working within social impact sectors to build the confidence, clarity, and strategy required to lead transformative change.

I am a warm and empathic coach who believes in the power of deep listening and inquiry to assist you to find your own answers as part of your unique path and lived experience.

My clients have represented leadership from healthcare, arts, governance, and human service sectors spanning across the globe from Hong Kong to Appalachia. This has provided me with a rich practice to journey with each of them to support their visions and dreams for their communities.

I would love the opportunity to work with you and unlock your greatest potential!
