I am passionate about training and capacity building that allow people and teams to succeed in their work. This means developing solutions that are innovative but also practical. The best moments are when someone experiences a challenging tool or process in a new way and discovers they finally have what they need.

My spectrum of specialties come from years working in in both field operations and administration. I bridge the gap that often arises between the two with expertise in business planning, organizational development, financial systems and management, training design, and strategy implementation through participatory planning. With extensive international experience I've worked with organizations in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Chile, Indonesia, South Africa, and across Europe. I hold an MBA from IE University in Spain in Global Business Administration, an MS from Tufts University in Animals and Public Policy, and a BA with Honors from University of Michigan in English and Writing.
