what i offer
"I strive to create a more just, compassionate and healthy world. One of my callings is to help nurture personal and professional integrity and the courage to act on it. I've found that when leaders bring integrity and humanity to the places where they live and work, it is life giving. It helps to overcome the destructive results of so much of what I witness everyday: moral failure, distrust, stress, isolation, fatigue and burnout.
I am inspired by the competent and compassionate individuals who provide leadership in some of society’s most crucial roles: educating children and young adults, healing others, caring for patients, leading faith communities and congregations, guiding teams and organizations, serving in government, and fostering civic community.
