I help ambitious, compassionate leaders make change


I’m a former pro speedskater and former journalist.

I have a Ph.D. in positive organizational psychology, the science of optimum human experience at work.

I work with NOBL Collective to help make companies better. Better meetings, deeper problem solving, fairer decision-making, higher creativity, more satisfying work life integration, more cohesive teams, smoother planned change.

How I might help you

I write, speak, lead workshops, and coach on all matters pertaining to change leadership, culture, problem solving, and communication.

A few quotes I love

  • Making the simple complicated is commonplace. Making the complicated simple, awesomely simple – that's creativity. ~ Charlie Mingus

  • Do what you feel in your heart is right, for you will be criticized anyway. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

  • Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.

  • In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But in practice, there is. ~ Yogi Berra

  • No answer is what the wrong question begets. ~ Alexander Bickel

  • Joy is inexhaustible, unlike seriousness. ~ Jean Paul

  • The healthier the relationship, the fewer topics are off limits. (this one’s mine!)
