We all want to have a meaningful life, to contribute, to grow and learn, and to experience the world around us. But sometimes we need a little help. I have been helping people – both young and young at heart – become their best selves for almost 20 years. I do this:
As a writer: I write articles, short stories, as well as blog at Maoomba and The Real Food Chronicles. Currently I am working on two major projects: a young adult novel and a book called Wonderfueled, based on a course I teach by the same name.
As an educator: I develop experiential learning programs and craft personalized experiences that can help you explore your potential within the worlds of creativity, relationship, food, wonder, and more.
As a facilitator: I facilitate women’s leaderships retreats and leadership academies, emcee at conferences, and facilitate workshops - primarily through my work at Five Degrees Consulting. I also work with participants to bring out their best selves, speakers to elicit their best content, and audience members to engage in stimulating discussion. I particularly enjoy working with groups focused on: leadership, wonder, creativity, food culture, education, social impact, sustainable business, and clean energy.
As a speaker: I often talk to groups – large and small – about cultivating wonder, learning from experience, collaboration (in business, writing and life), and the risks and rewards of challenging ourselves to explore possibility and potential.
If you are interested in working with me, inviting me to speak, or if you have an interesting project up your sleeve that you would like to discuss, please contact me here.
