Savvy strategist with over two decades experience.


My superpower is the ability to connect the dots - assisting entities who have been underserved or have long standing obstacles, to find a pathway to success. Passionate about rural communities but also urban environments as these locations are looking to overcome climate, housing, and workforce challenges.
