My work explores the relationship between leadership, psychology, contemplative practice, and innovation. I work with leaders both individually and in groups, as well as in retreat at our center in Taos, New Mexico. I have a passion for working with those who wish to revitalize or who have an interest in increasing emotional or intuitive intelligence. I am a long-time practitioner of meditation and I enjoy incorporating practices that explore the nature of consciousness into my work.
I enjoy writing and in 2016 published a book titled Silent Leaders.
Earlier in my career I co-founded the Center for Advanced Emotional Intelligence (AEI), serving as the Senior Partner for eleven years. In 2011 I moved to Taos, New Mexico and founded Contemplative Leadership Development (CLD) so that I could extend my work into a retreat setting.
I have an undergraduate degree in philosophy from the College of Wooster and a Ph.D. in counseling psychology from Fordham University.
I have two children and three grandchildren and presently reside in Taos.
