If it’s not fun, don’t do it. –advice from one of my favorite mentors
I facilitate processes and experiences that help individuals and groups work creatively to break through obstacles and leverage their strengths. My goal in working with others is to harness a state of flow where there is energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment.
My work as a professor is very much about learning, and my favorite way to learn is in collaboration with others. I collaborate with individuals and groups in healthcare, business, education, and the non-profit sector providing facilitation, training, and evaluation services.
I specialize in strategic planning, meeting design and facilitation, dissemination, and qualitative evaluation. I have ten years of experience implementing Liberating Structures, Positive Deviance, User-Centered Design, Participatory Evaluation, Visual and Art-Based Research, Food Pedagogy, and Diffusion of Innovations.
