I am a social entrepreneur, educational consultant, community and international development practitioner. I am passionate about causes that relieve human suffering. I work with individuals, organizations and communities to use strength based approaches to co-create and develop solutions to challenges they face.
I enjoy facilitating conversations and taking on assignments on diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice. I have had varied experience working in different countries around the world, across sectors and with amazing human beings that work every day to leave the earth a better place than they found it. I believe that understanding context, culture and community are an important aspect of addressing challenges and I take this praxis into all my work. I have a passion for facilitating strength-based dialogues and conversations that build collaborative relationships in groups and organizations, which help them to achieve their agreed upon goals, objectives and results.
