What is your why?
When my first child was born, I found myself imagining the stories they would tell about their parents. Immediately, I realized I needed to shift the focus of my career from technology to directly addressing the climate crisis. Having always been in love with our planet and furious at the waste and destruction we’ve caused, I am now committed to applying my skills coaching and developing organizations toward accelerating our transition to more sustainable ways of operating our modern economy.
