A Walk in the Woods
Join me in my walk in the woods videos, where I talk about how leaders can use the power of Storytelling for impact, helping uncover the stories that move their audiences. I’ve been told I have a knack for taking complex topics and making them simple but engaging.
If not at my desk, you might find me out on the trail with my dogs and husband, out skiing or trail running. It’s where I do my best creative problem-solving.

Let's change the world one story at a time.
