I coach current and retired knowledge workers on self-expression. I facilitate and speak with organizations on creativity, play, joy, heart-centered leadership, and difficult emotions.

In the Thriving Room podcast, I sample the clients, advisors, and collaborators who influence my work helping people to unleash who they are upon the world. My passion is to help high-achieving individuals refocus on being over doing. Our goal is to reclaim agency in creating meaning so that how you carry yourself through your days and hours is a loud, proud voice of who you really are. By hosting and celebrating the unconventional perspectives and backgrounds of guests in the podcast, I aim to challenge narrow ideas of how we can be, and to share evocative narratives that serve society’s collective well-being.
