Dreaming big. Making it happen. I live an adventure. I choose it to be an adventure.
I am an educator. My love is leadership. I am fascinated by good ideas, system change, innovation and transformation.
I believe when people find the intersection of their purpose and passion they can live out their calling. I help others flourish—so they can do the best work of their lives. I build human capacity.
I believe in trust, transparency and truth as pivotal to organizational health. These cornerstones must be evident at the top in order to permeate our organizations.
I love working with others, some days. I love being intensely alone, some days. I like to hide in a book. Run long with the wind. Walk in the wild. And do absolutely nothing.
I crave outrageous family vacations. I make memories for my four boys: ages 12, 16, 20, & 22. And I am committed to making the world a better place for them.
I want to remember to be kind. Yes, there is simplicity in kindness. It truly is a measure of the heart.
Joyfully obeying the call.
