For more than 20 years, I’ve been striving to help people to do more than just survive during adversity and loss. I believe my approach takes the edge off of change and welcomes healing through listening, encouragement, and empowering insights. I have been trusted by community and non-profit companies, health care agencies, small to mid-sized businesses, schools, and churches to deliver keynote presentations, workshops, and group facilitating. My purpose is to equip you and your company: when people are at a loss, you won’t be.
