In my eighteen years of military service, I’ve developed a keen sense of discipline, focus and courage and applied it to my work with at-risk youth.

My background as a philanthropic program officer, grant writer and federal grant reviewer, executive director, Board chair, and consultant lends great experience and insight into options and solutions. The multi-million dollar philanthropic investments I’ve managed have led to the creation of Bluum.org, Mission43, Khan Idaho, Go On Idaho and many other successful initiatives.
Change & Communications Expert
My superpowers are onboarding employees to make them into agents of change, encouraging cooperation to let collective intelligence bud, facilitating group discussions to lead them to co-designed decisions. I believe we have to give people the floor to make change happen. I support my clients in driving their transformation projects with their staff: get commitment, encourage cooperation, give meaning to the change, write the story and build collectively a tailor-made change management plan. I am also a sketchnoting and doodling addict. I like to turn anything I read or hear into a visual recap. I like to tell stories with doodles and a few key words. I believe a visual one-pager of a conference or a mission statement definitely helps focusing on key ideas, and being understandable and memorable.
