I collaborate with organizations of all sizes to achieve goals and make a global impact. With a triple bottom line of planet + people + profit, co-creative solutions emerge to bring about the more just and beautiful world that our hearts know is possible.
Areas of expertise: facilitation, strategic planning, research, program development, coordination and communications. I hold a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Master of Arts (MA) in International Development, and I am also a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) and Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500).
