At the core of my work is helping leaders use media and community building strategies (digital and face-to-face) to strengthen their organizations and advance their work. 

I like to say that community is a catalyst and media is an amplifier.  When we combine them we can accomplish amazing things!

I work with a growing group of diverse clients ranging from nonprofits and congregations to authors, entrepreneurs, and independent activists.  If you’d like to discuss working together, contact me and we can plan a call to explore the possibilities.


The following are my primary services and areas of focus.  Just as technology, culture, and associated trends are rapidly shifting, so too are the ways I work with leaders and their organizations.

  • One-on-One Leadership Coaching
  • Keynote Speaking
  • Corporate Community Building Events
  • Nonprofit Community Building Events
  • Assessing Organizational Connections and Growth Opportunities
  • Small Group Program Design
  • Small Group Facilitator Training
  • Small Group Leadership Coaching
  • Small Group Content / Session Development
  • Social Media Strategy for Membership-Based Organizations
  • Social Media Training  for Social Justice Leaders

If you’re wondering if I can help with something not listed here, don’t hesitate to ask. I’m always paying attention to emerging trends and technology.  I’m actively tracking the revolution in robotics, artificial intelligence, the singularity and what that means for our human work, health, and happiness.

Promises and Perils of Digital Life

Despite the power of social media to connect,  for many people and many of our institutions, the technology is having a negative impact.

Negative Impacts Include

  • Weak connections
  • Social isolation, social anxiety
  • Low commitment
  • Unhealthy conflict
  • Wasted time
  • Lower productivity

The quality of our relationships drives health, happiness, and productivity.  Prioritizing relationships, intentional community building, and face-to-face interaction offers many benefits.

Benefits of Connection

  • Deeper community
  • Improved communication
  • Higher commitment
  • Stronger collaborations
  • Accelerated innovation
  • Increased productivity

Interested in harnessing the power of human connection to advance your nonprofit, school, congregation, or socially conscious business?  Contact me below, and we can discuss the possibilities.
