My Personal Beliefs and Interests

It's important. Really important. Finding the right fit for yourself, for someone you care about, or for your child or teen matters a lot. It can be an anxiety inducing task, so rest assured that if it's not the right fit between us, I will know and you will too. I am passionate about organizations- especially those looking to make the worked around us better and easier for others. I deeply enjoy working with and guiding mission driven organizations. Whether your organization is in a time of transition and chaos, desperately trying to find the path back to calm, focus and stability that was once there or you’re looking to deepen the connection and commitment you have to each other AND the cause, I look forward to joining you and walking the path together.
