DIFFERENCE-MAKING THROUGH STRATEGY AND INNOVATION

You want to leave the world a better place. Me too. 

That’s why I work with leaders and changemakers to solve complicated problems in infrastructure and the environment.

I’ve helped guide transformation inside the most complex and disorganized organizations. And as a fellow leader and changemaker, I get it! Solving tough challenges while pushing boundaries and getting people to align — it’s not easy.

You may be stuck on an issue and need an infusion of creativity and innovation. Or perhaps you’re tasked with new initiatives and the need to align stakeholders, but don’t know where to start. Maybe an upcoming capital investment has a hefty price tag, and you want to make sure it meets expectations AND engages your stakeholders in a positive way.

Somersaulting, together

I roll with you, side-by-side, as a thought-partner, fellow instigator, advisor, technical expert, facilitator, and problem-solver, so that you can move ahead.

Imagine this: you’ve crystallized your vision. You’ve broken out of the proverbial rut, stakeholders are on board, and your team is energized and taking inspired action toward your vision.

With expert facilitation of key meetings and stakeholder processes, I help you tap into the enormous potential of your team so they can fuel innovation where it’s needed most and strategically fulfill your mission.
