I moved from Minnesota to Porto, Portugal 5 years ago with my husband and 2 teenage daughters. I had always dreamed of returning to Europe (after living in France in my early 20's), and the beautiful city of Porto won my heart - and my family's heart as well.

My organizational consulting enables teams to harness the power of co-creation based on the principles of dynamic governance and conscious communication. Through one-on-one coaching, I also help individuals transform chaos and challenges into a catalyst for positive change in every area of their lives.

Founder of The Co-Creation Forum and The Power of Co-Creation ~ social media platforms to explore the idea that “We are all powerful human creators, always creating our world, our realities. And we either create by default or with clear intention.”
