Educating

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 over 30 countries, on five continents. Drawing from this global outlook, my passion continues to be facilitating important shifts in how we think, feel & act in order to make a lasting impact.

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

  • Share my empowering story at conferences, workshops, trainings and retreats 
  • Design, deliver, and evaluate experientially-based curriculum to diverse learners        
  • Speak to audiences young and old with the intent to inspire, motivate and engage

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

Feedback I often receive describes how people have shifted their views, strengthened communication & organization, and enhanced confidence – all elements key to life satisfaction.
