Looking back on the common threads that weave throughout my vocation, I find leadership in service of hospitality and empowerment. The breadth of my work experience encompasses both profit and nonprofit industries, but each part finds its drive in these themes. This has taken the shapes of leading teams of volunteers to serve hundreds who are hungry on the streets of San Francisco, listening closely with individuals and groups for what brings them alive in spiritual direction, and coaching teams to see beyond their own limiting beliefs and accomplishing goals that once seemed impossible. At ABLE, I am challenged to utilize all that I have learned as a leader and a teacher in the service of a truly worthy cause: creating a place of welcome for a community, who like the rest of us, cannot do it alone. In this humble space, if we all contribute our very best, we may be graced to witness and experience thriving.
