I’m a facilitator in the learning experience. My purpose in any teaching situation is to create a safe, comfortable, invigorating, interactive atmosphere in which participants can apply their own understanding and skills to the material I present.

My interests are broad, and I bring considerable research and organization skills to the task of designing my workshops and presentations. I enjoy exploring new topics and creating custom experiences for my clients. My creativity and flexibility allow me to present a topic in the form of a one-hour lecture or a weekly class. The result is a valuable and memorable educational experience.

Private Sessions

I am available to give private, confidential, individualized sessions on any of my presentation or workshop topics.
