I am a catalyst for change. I create “Ah-ha” experiences in the classroom, uncover gifts not yet recognized, and facilitate guided self-discovery with social workers in the field, their supervisors and child welfare leadership at state and local levels. One of my biggest joys is coaching and developing facilitation/trainer talent.
What I do best is inspire. Through my stories, you see possibilities emerge and then picture yourself as the hero of that story in which a family comes together and the community reaches out to help protect a child. I create magic by making the material in the classroom become real, relevant and accessible through the voices of family stories which speak to relevant professional experiences. 
I am drawn like a magnet to difficult conversations in a group, because in transforming the loudest critic, I transform individuals into a committed team working toward a common goal. Passion and a commitment to social justice drive my work.

I am an architect of learning. As a facilitator and instructional designer, I think creatively. I provide the instructional scaffolding needed to support a thorough and engaging learning environment. 
I can support a group through difficult conversations, managing the tension when a topic is charged. I bring compassion, wit and experience to the learning process. I have a passion for people and the ‘Ah-ha’ experience. I believe the collective wisdom is greater than what individuals bring. I love uncovering and sharing that wisdom in a group.

I am a lifelong organizer, teacher and coach. As a high school and college athlete on the basketball court, I pushed myself and my teammates to do their very best to win.  If we didn’t win, I wanted to be sure that we all learned something from the experience. I did the same as a coach. I love rules that have vision, but I want to make sure they serve the purpose for which they are intended. I evaluate women’s basketball officials for the ACC, Big South, Colonial and Southern Conferences. For me, it is a way of giving back to the game that I love so much.  A game that, for women, has come a long way. I am proud of being part of that long trail. As I’ve aged, I switched to a bicycle and running the roads.  
I bring that same coaching and teaching skill to my work with Blue Spiral Consulting as their Business and Financial Manager. It is my job to get Blue Sprial’s consultants and trainers to the right place, with the right materials, at the right time.  and make sure our customers are happy with the results. It is also my job to make sure that Blue Spiral has an inspired and practical financial and business vision. I make plans to reach those goals, for the present and for the future. It is my mission to make sure the owners of this great company reach the “ah-ha” moment for their clients and never worry about anything outside of their commitment and passion for their work.
