Transforming Ideas into Meaningful Action

My mission as an experiential educator, facilitator and speaker is to inspire people to transform their ideas into actions that positively impact the world.     

My experiential education career has spanned over 25 years, in more than 30 countries, on five continents. Drawing from this global outlook and skill set, my passion continues to be facilitating transformative learning that propels thoughtful reflection and confident action. 

Organizations, educational institutions, community groups & companies hire me to:  

  • Share my empowering transformative story at conferences, workshops, and retreats 
  • Design, deliver, and evaluate experientially-based curriculum for diverse learners        
  • Motivate audiences to move from mental clutter & uncertainty to clarity and confidence.

My content is always full of relevant take-aways that can be implemented right away, while I share stories in creative and compelling ways with an energetic, engaging and intuitive style.

Feedback I often receive from participants and students is that their world views have been expanded, communication & organization skills strengthened, and confidence enhanced.
