For years I’ve been saying that my spiritual gift is telling people what to do, getting them to actually do it, and still have them like me at the end. My experience comes from leading groups of volunteers, teaching in elementary school classrooms, being an entrepreneur, a boss, a board member, and a consultant, so I've had lots of opportunities to refine this gift.

I'm excited to bring my tools and practices to support your journey around:

  • Making sure you only commit to what you know you can do, and saying no when you need to!
  • Delegating to others without ambiguity, and holding them accountable if necessary.
  • Managing communication breakdowns in healthy, equitable, and productive ways.
