I catalyze conversations that change the future.
I bring the best of thought-leadership and expert-practice to help organizations spark thought and ideas, design and achieve their future vision, and navigate change as they focus, strengthen, and transcend current limitations.
My work focuses on four practice areas: strategy, organizational development, innovation and design, and facilitation of all kinds.

More about me…
I have worked in the ﬁelds of strategy, innovation, and organizational change for three decades and hold special skills in innovation and organizational development, design, and intervention.
I hold a Ph.D. in Psychoeducational Processes from Temple University and enjoy teaching courses in education, the social sciences, and business. I have continuing special interest in innovation, creativity, and design-thinking applications and much of my exploratory work focuses on new models of adult learning to create deep learning and change, both on the individual and group levels.
My real passion is working with groups, large and small. I am an expert facilitator of human process from dyads, to small groups, to large scale retreats and have notable experience with leadership groups, boards, planning bodies, and with strategic and creative solutions. I founded Sierra Learning Solutions, a platform for tools and solutions to support organizational and individual change. I continue as an active leader of AMI, a 40 year old innovation learning community.
My career has taken me across many industries, but much of my time has been spent leading learning organizations. In my role as a university administrator, I served three universities over a twenty-year career that focused on building institutional capacity and creating impactful outcomes. I managed technological implementation of business intelligence, data warehousing, security, learning systems, analytics, and program innovation. I established and led offices of institutional research, strategic planning, institutional effectiveness, assessment and program review, institutional accreditation, enrollment management to include retention, admissions, ﬁnancial aid and registrar functions, and sustainability. In 2009, I was honored by the Society for College and University Planning with their award for Institutional Innovation and Integration.
