Is your work working? 

I create space and structure for you and your partner organizations to make sure your model is still relevant before you continue implementing it.


Refreshing your strategy?

I create a process to help your team articulate priorities so you can say a strong ‘yes’ to great opportunities and a shared ‘no’ to ones that don’t align.


Navigating a transition?

I create experiences that help you regroup and accelerate through this season of uncertainty with more clarity and momentum.


Let me inspire your group to grow into its imaginative potential and be energized by its need to adapt.

If you or your organization
are looking to reimagine your next chapter,
you’re in the right place.

I’ve written three books so far. One is on nimble facilitation. The second is on facilitating strategic planning. And the third is on discerning what is fixed and flexible so that you can adapt to change as a leader.

Reimagine Your Next Chapter With Me

I’ve been described as someone with “warm, wise energy” and it’s contagious. I bring and build energy. 

I’m a world class facilitator, certified coach, bestselling author and trusted advisor.

Having facilitated strategic planning in the social sector for more than 25 years, I am increasingly convinced that purpose-driven leaders need to work together to build shared strategies for more coordinated impact. And they need to do their own individual work — creating their own personal strategic plans to make sure their life choices are staying aligned with what’s most important to them.

And that’s why I’m excited to work with you to help you redesign your next chapter — personally, organizationally or across your network or sector.


Reading is optional. Staying relevant isn’t.
I read the books so you don’t have to.

Damaged Roots

This past weekend, my husband and I hiked through an area of Kelowna, British Columbia that had been ravaged by wildfires last August. This experience was new for us, and eerie. I was expecting the landscape to be more barren than it was. But many trees were still standing. Some were visibly charred at the …

From Panic to Possibilities

When you’re in the midst of adjusting to a new chapter, it’s easy to feel untethered or stuck. It can feel a bit like culture shock — the familiar markers are gone or aren’t serving you well anymore, but you aren’t yet sure how best to interpret the new signals you’re getting. Very disorienting.

Trust the Process

Have you ever been asked to “trust the process?” It’s something I’ve invited groups or coaching clients to do, out loud and far more frequently in my head. Why? Because the process of strategy building or navigating transitions can become fuzzier before it gets clearer, and if you give up on it too soon, you …
