Unleash the
potential of your
students, colleagues,
and organizations.

I am a Vermont-Based meeting facilitator, curriculum consultant, trainer and coach. I work with nonprofits, educational institutions, businesses, and individuals. In addition to offering in-person services in Vermont, New England, and beyond, I also work with clients online and have experience designing online programs. I would love to work with you to help you or your organization reach your full potential!

Curriculum Development

Well-designed educational programs combine what we know about adult learning with engaging platforms and teaching techniques. I use my 20+ years of educational training experience to help you make your educational programs more effective. I’d love to help you design a course, implement a training program, or plan out a multi-year educational initiative.

Meeting Planning & Facilitation

Meetings have the potential to achieve great things, but only if they are well-designed and keep participants meaningfully engaged. Let’s create an agenda that truly achieves your goals. I work with groups to identify goals, plan meeting agendas, integrate meaningful activities, and ensure outcomes for powerful meetings.  I also serve as a meeting facilitator for groups of all shapes and sizes.

Professional Workshops

Your team deserves time to develop their professional skills and reflect on their journey. Whether you want to improve how you plan and host meetings or take some time to mindfully process your work, I’d love to work with your group! I have a menu of professional workshops I can offer and can also work with you to design something unique.
