Because if you teach a man to fish...

With a background in informal education and years of experience working with dozens of organizations, my workshops focus on real-life case studies and hands-on, strengths-based activities. 

In addition to offering custom workshops for organizations, I have presented at numerous events for professionals of various sorts, including Colorado Science Conference, Colorado Association of Libraries Conference, Colorado Nonprofit Association Conference, Denver Nonprofit Institute, 48 Hours of Socially Engaged Art, Collective Impact Summit, Denver GIS Day, and meetings of the Rocky Mountain chapters of the Society for Technical Communication and the Association for Talent Development.
