I am an artistic soul with an insatiable curiosity about what makes people tick.

As a designer and facilitator of collaborative design experiences, I am dedicated to creating the conditions for diverse people to come together with curiosity, compassion, generosity and creativity to solve complex problems. Before joining theDifference, I co-founded a company dedicated to supporting transformation across the healthcare industry, emphasizing health systems, healthcare delivery and provider organizations. In the last decade, my attention has expanded to help propel organizations and communities to make a positive social impact. Solving the complex challenges we face today, like climate change, global health and economic sustainability, requires diverse perspectives around the table. So I’m on a mission to create new models of inclusive decision-making fueled by differences in gender, ethnicity, economic background, politics, fields of education, study and profession.
