Sandy has over twenty-eight years of experience in working with both organizations and individuals who desire to work and live with greater intention and several years of fine-tuning her passion for quality coffee! Degrees in Community Health and Organizational Leadership along with extensive training in Appreciative Inquiry and Clifton Strengthstm provide her with a unique lens to "set a table" where clients from all walks of life engage and discover not only what could be, but how to get there.
Her interactive style and practical approaches foster the transparency needed for sustainable transformation whether it's a team in the workplace, parents struggling on how to bring calm into a stormy home front as they raise their family, or an individual desiring to move forward in life but is unsure of where to start.
Sandy merges research-based strategies, a resilience-building attitude, empathy, professional insight, and at times the humor, needed to fuel clients from stuck to thriving.
SANDY'S TOP FIVE STRENGTHS STRATEGIC | ARRANGER | CONNECTEDNESS | RELATOR | BELIEF
My WHY... To create spaces where people can explore potential, emerge vision, and engage strength-based strategies that lead them to do work and live life with greater resiliency and intention.
A Little More of my Story... My 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.
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 reframing, 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. Tend to the tables you sit at well, creating space where trust and genuine relationship can flourish!
