Leadership Experience

Organizations and institutions turn to me to clarify their purpose and catalyze transformative change. From municipalities to museums, tribal nations to universities, I guide teams through co-creation to produce meaningful, community-driven results.Just as the most fruitful soils rely on the right mixture of nutrients, water, and minerals, communities thrive in the face of change when expertly cultivated through innovation, joy, humility, and even a bit of magic.

I bring 20 years of experience coaching communities with an approach rooted in listening, flexibility, and optimism. I’m ready to help you develop the richest possible environment to make an impact.
