I am passionate about investing in youth and adults and seeing them develop their self-awareness and confidence. I offer support and resources to individuals and teams who are making decisions about the future and working to establish lasting, collaborative relationships. In my work with teams, Highlands provides deeper understanding of each team’s culture and how they can work together effectively. Highlands benefits individuals because understanding their natural abilities gives people tools to express their strengths and challenges to employers, more clarity about next steps during times of transition, and more self-confidence as they lead in their communities.
I have trained and mentored youth and youth workers since 1990 and have been a Highlands consultant since 2006. I am part of the team that directs Ledge Leadership, an organization that focuses on youth, young adults, and organizations who want to increase their capacity to lead.
