What inspires you to work in leadership development?
I’m inspired by the capacity for growth and change that is within all of us. I am privileged to witness people engage in this growth in Coro programs as they take time to reflect on themselves, to make meaning of their work and goals in a community, and to harness the energy of that community for positive change.

Where are we most likely to find you when you’re not at work?
At my kitchen table eating dinner with my family, playing a board game, or creating some crafty seasonal decorations for our home (#nailedit).
