How do we cultivate real vitality in ourselves, our relationships, our jobs, and our work? What does it take for our organizations and communities to be simultaneously successful, innovative, and equitable? How do we sustain hope that this is possible?

I offer guidance in creating positive change empowered by empathic connection to what matters most which allows for transformations sourced from acceptance, compassion, and celebration rather than shame, guilt, or punishment.Learn More
