*** 2019 UPDATE *** I am humbled and honored by all of the incredible coaching and speaking opportunities I was able to participate in this past year. 2018 contracts have led to an exciting new project that I'll be unfurling later this year. Due to some amazing opportunities with my returning clients, I'm unable to accept any new coaching & consulting contracts at this time.


2019 Dates for my most often requested organizational development presentation, "Wild Clarity" Exploring Your Personal Backcountry workshop are limited and filling quickly.
