I am one of the leading trainers, facilitators and communication coaches in the Portland area and for many years have specialized in classes on communication and problem-solving skills, facilitating effective meetings, and instructor training.
Upon my completion of a B.S. in psychology at UCLA, I enrolled at the University of Oregon to earn my M.A. in counseling. As a result, my communication training classes and facilitating skills are deeply rooted in research-based strategies. I always follow best practices that increase engagement and deliver positive, lasting results.
After coming to Portland, I worked as a training director with the federal government and subsequently started my own practice. Ever since, I have enjoyed helping people improve working relationships, build effective teams, and develop both leadership and problem-solving skills.
My classes are widely praised for teaching relevant skills that can be applied immediately on the job. I actively encourage everyone to challenge ideas, ask questions, and clarify the material being presented. During the workshops, there is a high level of participation as we talk and practice together.
I am a certified DiSC distributor and facilitator as well as a certified Blanchard Situational Leadership II instructor.
