I am driven to create pathways for organizations and individuals to stop doing more with less and start living and leading with resiliency and relevancy! I help you move from exhausted to inspired. With degrees in Community Health and Organizational Leadership, my professional and personal experiences along with extensive training in Appreciative Inquiry and Clifton Strengths™ offer a unique ability to "set a table" for professional development where clients from all walks of life engage and discover not only what could be, but how to get there.
I merge research-based strategies, a resilience-building attitude, empathy, the necessary push-and-pull to keep progress moving forward, and even humor to help you catch a breath when facing challenges.
When you and I lead ourselves well we are better positioned to lead those entrusted to us in ways that transform their livability and the wellbeing of our organizations!
To create environments and conversations that invite organizations and individuals to explore potential, emerge a vision and engage sustainable strategies that build resilience in how we lead and live.
WHY IT MATTERS
The experience of exhaustion, burnout and lack of clarity is sabotaging teams, boards and our individual ability to CONTRIBUTE with meaning to the work, COLLABORATE in ways that builds CONNECTION and under minds our ability to CREATIVELY design solutions that build CAPACITY in those who are called to activate the mission.
My professional development consulting and coaching is enhanced with practical strategies and assessments that allow clients to discover more about their strengths and resources to do life with greater relevancy. The academic pieces were important to equip me professionally for the services I offer clients.
Then there's the day-to-day living; you know, the real stuff like raising four kids with my husband Kevin over the past 34 years that has offered me the gift of developing skills and intuition when working with organizations, families, and individuals to foster resiliency. The steps [and missteps equally] have provided necessary lessons to better create environments where critical conversations and innovative solutions can surface.
Being diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer in January 2016 offered an external opportunity to live out and leverage my strengths. The journey of re-framing and naming relevancy surrounding the experiences I faced urged me to lean even more into my faith in Christ. The support of those I'm in relationship with, at home and work, as well as many I will never know, offered me the ability to tend to my table when I felt the most vulnerable. The unique journey I was given fuels my work even more intensely.
The opportunity you and I have to influence environments is real. At those tables we sit at: our families, workplace, communities - we get to choose how we influence. We impact the spaces we walk into regardless of our intent to do so. Together we can create spaces for people to work in that impact and inspire them to live with greater intention and joy. That is an investment for the greater good for generations to come!Ready to Edge Walk for the Greater Good?
