In my former career as an architect, the most satisfying part of my work was leading teams of people through complex decisions, from conflict to creativity. I developed a knack for creating an environment where clients and consultants could tap into their most creative and collaborative selves, respond to obstacles and setbacks, shift frustration to focus, and get the work done.
These experiences drew me to facilitative mediation—a perfect fit with my interests and nature.
Out of my own relationships as a wife, mother and daughter, I am drawn to working with people struggling through big life transitions, particularly elders, teenagers and their families. I love that my role as a mediator is to hold a place for each person at the table, upholding the validity of their views and values as they move into and out of roles of power in the family.
