Uncover possibilities, build your change muscles
Lifelong communications and marketing strategist, working with leaders in Fortune 500 companies to "forklift thinking" on marketing, communications and team development. (Thanks to my HP executive client for the forklift descriptor.)
Co-founded the Rebels at Work movement with Carmen Medina, the most rewarding labor of love in my professional life so far. (More of my views, research and writing can be found at https://www.rebelsatwork.com/.)
Happiest when I'm facilitating workshops on change and resiliency, and infecting people with optimism and practices to achieve more than they ever thought possible.
Author and performance storyteller.
Certified in positive psychology; I believe in teaching evidence-based practices. No woo-woo, guru jargon.
Committed to growing wiser and wilder.
Top VIA Character Traits that guide my professional and personal life: Honesty, creativity, bravery, appreciation of excellence, self-regulation, relationships, curiosity.
