I am passionate about helping individuals bring their best to their lives and work. I had the great fortune to do this at IBM for 20 years. I thrive when I am creating and collaborating, when I am writing and speaking, when I am creating innovative and inspiring development experiences that matter.
I served in IBM’s prestigious Corporate Service Corps, led work to develop IBM’s leadership competencies, and won awards for my work in career development. I served on the Board of Directors for the Green Building Certification Institute from 2008-2014 and think there is something important about how we engage with Mother Earth.
I love taking long walks, cooking delicious food, and traveling with my husband, and I enjoy being deeply engaged in yoga, gardening, and photography. I love to write and have published two books of poetry: my first in 2012, Mostly My Heart Sings, and my latest in 2017, And Then Opens Possibility. I currently call home Iowa City, Iowa.
