Three words that describe me
Passionate, Creative, Inspiring
Early in my career, I encountered an extraordinarily resistant participant who demonstrated “shut down” in every sense. After implementing a number of engagement techniques I had learned, the person came up to me at the end with a completely different attitude. That was when I knew that encouraging others and building their confidence to create their best self is the work I’m meant to do. I still carry that passion today.
Something unique about me
You can often find me conversing with (and learning from) strangers…like really often. I’ve also been described as a combination of “Gilligan’s Island” and the Dalai Lama (of sorts).
