My ability to see and share where things connect and where they lead allows me to help individuals and organizations expand their potential. In my current work I use these skills helping students see how they will apply what they learn and coaching executives toward their next personal and organizational success.

My background is a tapestry of music, disability and social sciences. I have over 25 years experience working with people in vocational training programs, education and employment settings. I have a strong experience in systems change, and have led large systems change initiatives. Simultaneously I have worked with higher education students in undergraduate and graduate programs, including those with hidden disabilities impacting their academic approach. A partner and I founded a consulting practice with a focus on systems change related to disability, diversity, organizational growth and personal transformation. This practice includes work with entrepreneurs, business executives and non-profit boards.

My experiences in service delivery, organizational development, community leadership and organizational behavior inform my research interests: spirituality and leadership, universal design, structural inequality and diversity.
