Motivated by challenges, working with passionate leaders, and exploring solutions. Currently on a much-needed leadership sabbatical. I have future goals to use my skills in a strengths-based team and environment. Apart from this, I have a desire to leave behind a legacy of beauty and freedom as part of my life's work.

I can usually be found helping to address local gaps/needs. This has allowed me to contribute to work in many different areas. Here are a few examples:
