The Blog

As a possibility detective, I seek out whimsy, flourishing, and purpose in far away and mundane places. My blog chronicles my travels, research, events, and what I’m reading and thinking about right now.

Sometimes I write as a personal brainstorm–meandering through the conundrums and opportunities life throws at me. Other times I write to share research, events, and training opportunities. Along the way, my hope is to cultivate possibilities, dreams, and curiosities for myself and others.

Oh The Possibilities!

Consulting & Workshops

I offer training, consulting, research support and keynote speaking to a variety of corporations, nonprofits, governmental agencies, universities, and individuals.

If you need a vibrant speaker for your event, want to take your organization’s wellbeing and leadership to the next level, could use some research support, or want to partner on an in-depth program assessment, I can help.
